What about if you accidentally put 3000? That would be like running a completely backed off slipper?

It's my first buggy in years since my B44 but it doesn't sound good. VERY loud gear action like it's skipping but yet it still crawls forward.

Did you put the shims in properly on the cone gear that catches the front and rear diff gears?

It will definitely be louder than your B44 but should be a solid sounding noise not crunchy

Really? This is my first 4wd and first center gear diff. I just figured 10k and lower would feel like a loose slipper. 100k seems the norm and I think Torrance stated if there was a big quad he would throw 300k in there.

Gotcha. Surprising to hear that such heavy cars run such light oil. I believe Ty went up to 10k in is front diff for Reedy!!

Then must be in front or rear diff.you said center already checked. Shims won't be your problem. Those shims so small just prevents long term wear..must disassemble front and rear diffs and when assembly make sure it turns smooth before installing.

There are 4 washers, not shims that go behind each of the 4 spider gear to make proper mesh.those are important .you may be right casey

only if both front and rear are messed up though. He said it barely crawls forward, even if one diff was working correctly it would seem like it had some power. The other diff would have to be working as a brake and that would be pretty obvious with the wheels not wanting to move. Seems more center issue to me. I don't know, just trying to throw some ideas out there. I would have already thrown the buggy across the back yard!!!
