I had a thought for another possible way to do a dig setup. Basically what you would do is leave the center differential unlocked, and then have a brake on the driveline. You wouldn't have to worry about another method of braking the rear wheels because they would already be held in place by the driveline.

The only downfall of this setup, would be you would get axle stall similar to a clod because of the open center differential. If you could make a brake for both the front and real drive lines, and the brake was proportional, you could use the driveline brake to combat the axle stall.

When I first saw minis dig I had to have it...So I sat down at the kitchen table (aka. workbench) and had finished it in about 3 hours...Its a different design than miniwheelers and others but works awsome...I've taken it out and beat on it hard and have yet to have it malfunction...By far the best mod I have ever ran...Thanks mini for the direction...
