I am an average Joe driver so only every couple of months I rebuild my diffs. If there smooth not gritty and car is working properly why do you need to keep replacing them. It's not like a 22-4 to get out diffs anyway, 5 minutes about 10 screws and it's out. All part of the hobby. JMO
If you only drive on tracks that require a ball diff, thatís a fair argument - but if youíre a traveling racer, or someone who races on surfaces requiring the gear diff, then Iíd say the feature is appreciated. Thereís a reason pretty much everyone else has adopted the feature. The difference between 5-10 minutes and 1-3 is the amount of time you could be on the track testing your Setup changes on practice day.

Amen, no way anyone can justify not having this option. Quick access has been making its way into every car and I'm sure TLR is listening.

absolutely in my local area we run carpet and then there is loose dirt and high bite clay and everything in between all in the same race series. Literally no reason at this point to not have it. Such an easy option to implement.

19 screws/nuts not counting your slipper, but does include removing the lower shock nuts. And popping off one bulk up. After building and driving A B74 I am really digging the quick access Differentials.

Ran my AC today at the track on practice day and I love it. Just needs some more tweaking. Love me some TLR

I canít wait to drive mine. I just need to batten down the wiring, glue the tires I plan on using, and just throw a rattle can job on the kit body - I had commissioned a painter, but my order got delayed by the 22X-4, since I commissioned the two bodies together.

Donít know If this has been mentioned before. I took my 22 5.0 out with all of the elite updates minus the new steel diff which is backordered until April. Has anyone successfully run 2 gear 7k with the composite diff gears? Iím asking because I need more rotation coming from the rear of the car. I run on a smallish super high grip grey Home Depot grey carpet. 4 gear was done but a tad bit lazy in rotating.

if you want more rear rotation, make sure you have the short shock eyes on the rear, and remove the front sway bar. With the short shock eyes it can let the inside tire lift a little more when your heart around the corner, and removing the front sway bar lets the rear end roll quite a bit to transfer that weight to the outside tire letting it rotate

I had one of the small gears shatter into 5 pieces and the t bar break running 2 gear with 20k after a couple race days

If the above suggestions don't help, have your tried running lighter oil? Just a thought.

Moving the rear hub to the rear will usually free up the rear end

Pretty sure Frank said don't run two-gear with plastic gears. Two-gear with steel diff gears only. Run thinner oil and stick with 4 gears.

If you run the 22X-4 rear axle/bone it will free the back of the car up.
