Your diffs are a goner man...open up the rear gearbox and see if the white gears still have teeth in them...

What I think is happening is when it hits 2nd the one-way bearing isn't working.

I would replace the one way bearing.....If it still works in firts,the gears are probably OK...

If it worked a few days ago, and you changed nothing,the gear dind't flip itself,so the one way probably just went bad..

before you replace it try greasing it with one-way grease. make sure you use oneway grease not regular grease.

thanks guys.the two speed has less than 2 tanks run though it.im going to take it all apart and see if maybe some grease from the one way got into the clutch bell and see if that works.but like you said harry it was working great on saturday so its got to be installed the right way.

I'm 99.99% sure it's the one-way bearing in the two-speed. I just went through the same problem ... clean and lube it properly first, if it still fails, you'll need to get a new one-way bearing.
