    So just wondering if anyone has installed a vce with a 4 spider diff. I know it can cause the diff some stress and break if it's a stock diff. Just thinking about going to the dyno here sometime soon and get some pulls in but need it to be in fwd mode. So not sure if the same issue would still apply with a 4 spider diff. I certainly don't wanna be stressing the 4 spider diff too much by using it. Especially on the dyno for full throttle.

    It will be fine on the dyno, I've done it numerous times with my own car.

    Just disconnect your transfer case and zip tie up the drive shaft or take it off. Fwd mode engaged. It won't hurt the center diff.

    If youre in Panama City, go to Emerald Coast Motorsports. Theyve got an AWD dyno and theyre no too far from you.

    I used to do this all the time! Only instead of zip tying the driveshaft, I used the switchable JDM transfer case! Which make it very easy to do.

    In fact, I preferred driving in FWD mode over the 4x4 mode!

    Thanks for the replies. Just wanted to be sure. Didn't wanna put any unneeded stress on this 4 spider diff. And Kchaazz. Thanks for the info. Had no idea that they had an awd dyno over there ;) Had never even heard of that place before until now.

    Car is pretty close to being complete but won't be ready that soon. Dang it. And if/when I go, I'll be taking it on a trailer. Would have to give someone some money to get me there on "their" trailer, but it'll be on a trailer. Lol.
