Default Setting up Front Digs...

Anyone ever considered rewiring the servo that switches the axles to hi/low to operate a switch to disengage the rear axle so you could do front burns or figure a way to get the front axle to freewheel and have RWD only... just throwing ideas out

I have already done it, did it last night. I took my rear axle apart and took stuff out of the high side gear box so, and locked the front axle in low so when I switch to high side the front stays in low and the rear disengages.

Sounds like an axle killer in the making.
