I Took my E-Maxx Out For a Rip Today. Nice Hot Day! Well i Put My 2000Mah Sport Packs in And Let It Fly On the Parking Lot By My House. Instant Power. It Was Wheelieing Like Mad. Three More Wheelies And it Suddenly Drops To All Four Wheels And I Hear "Clunk Clunk Clunk". I Pick It Up and Look At the Axles. The Rear Is Sheared Right Off. The Price i Pay For Running A Diff Spool. So I Took It Inside And Swapped My Front Driveshaft Into the Rear. Then I Thought "Hmm Two wheel Drive, Why Not" So I Disconnected the Remaining Driveshaft From The Front Wheel And Removed the One From the Transmission to the
front Differential Entierly. And I must Say, The E-Maxx Drove Like My Old Nitro Stampede! It Was Alot Of Fun. Tight Doughnuts, And Burnouts A' Plenty. I Think i Will Run It Two wheel Drive For A while, Lol You All Should Try It. you Might Be Suprised What It Can Do.
Well i Had To Tell My Adventure.

I have one of my trucks set-up at two-wheel drive. Our track crew really takes good care of our track, and we apply traction compound once a week, and then the day before our club races...which are every other week. When the traction compound is really sticky, I use the two-wheel drive truck, and it acts just like my XXX-T.
As the day wears on, and if we have lots of classes, I pull out the four-wheel drive as we start to loose traction.
My head wants to believe that the 2wd is slightly faster...but that is most likely due to the ability to get the power down on the track. There has to be some benefit to the drivetrain loss of not having to turn the additional diff...but I doubt it's something measurable.

I set up my E months ago for 2wd and love it. With a 20 tooth pinion, it has more power than when it had 18 tooth pinions with 4wd. They had about the same top speed, with normal pinions, but the 2wd would out accelerate it every time. :p :) :D
