    I recently swapped my GTS-T for a Scooby im just wondering what would happen if i pulled off the front driveshafts?? Would it simply sit and go nowhere as the fronts the easist to turn or is there some form of lsd between drive to the front wheels and the rear??

    you'd need a lock kit to stop any power going to the front driveshafts. If you pull the shafts out, the front output shafts will just spin

    Will they just spin preventing any drive from reaching the rear wheels or will they simply turn at the same rate as the rear wheels?. Im trying to work out if the car will actually move. I think its a viscous LSD in the transfer box if i remember rightly so it should spin up the front but at the same time drive the rear? or am i wrong?

    If it's viscous, it will put most power to whichever shafts have the least resistance (the front ones with no driveshafts in) but it will also drag the other ones round.
    So the car will probably move, but it won't be quick and it won't last long like that.
    thanks,
    James

    would it not affect the front wheel bearing if you took out the front shafts?

    how much are these lock kits and where can you get them from ???? also how easy cheap is it to get more steering lock on a scooby ?????

    edit; would the same lock kits fit a legacy ?????
