Looks good but could work out expensive.
$49.95x2 + $22.95x2US..


The next addition to the AUSRC Savage?


I wonder how much a fully locked diff (or two fully locked diffs) would affect the handling of a Savage.


I think I'll deffinately consider getting at least the diff locker for the rear.



The trick would be to have a spare front and rear end - one set fully locked - one set with the 4 gear diff mod... I'll have to work out the costs.. (can swap the shocks over easily enough...

The alloy diff cup is a good idea but like you guys mentioned a
fraction pricey BUT they are indestructable ! Possibly order one at a
time over a few overseas orders to soften the blow.



I would avoid locking the front diff at all costs ! It will make
cornering a real pain in the bum. With a locked rear end it makes the
savage very tail happy on all surfaces, its very fun to drive
I just
packed one of my stuffed diff cups with some epoxy putty and jammed it
all back together and I swap them as I choose.







The maximiser locker is a fantastic idea because it is not premenant
and it also acts on 4 parts of the diff cup, spreading the load evenly
!!

There are plenty of guys in the states using these as the "guineapigs" If they report no wearafter quitea few gallons i will consider them. The latest report was 1 gallon showingslight wear. Since the cups are alloyand the pins are steel there will still be wear. As long as they wear out much much slower, could be a good hop up. Although the plastic cups cost $5 US for a pair opposed to $100 Us + shipping a pair.They would want to almost last forever!
