Agreed 100%, now that I got the hang of it, it comes in very handy. It's not dig per-se, but definitely gives you some flexibility. Can rotate the front nicely if you've hung a rear tire as MOguy says. Also plenty of situations where I was climbing something steep and the front wanted to pull up. Unlock the rear diff, let one of the rear tires slip and the other three pull you up.

Yep!!

A couple months back I was in a big competition, class 3. I competed against many custom built rigs and drivers with far far more experience than me. I beat many of the with my stock chassis (upgraded electronics and other stuff) TRX4. The ones with DIG and 4wd of course had the advantage but working my lockers also did great. I got 10th which may not seem great but this was stiff competition. In the class 2 (smaller tire 2 channel turn and burn) I got my ass handed to me.

My class 2 is a true comp build and should be far more competitive than a little old basically stock TRX4 but a TRX4 and selectable lockers can maneuver and cover some ground (more than many want to admit) if you take a minute and learn how to use the selectable lockers.

It takes a little but to learn how to take advantage of the selectable lockers it really works.

*This was not a SORCCA event so class 2 and 3 may not be what some think it is.
