    Slash 4x4-2x4

    If you take the drive shaft out of a slash 4x4 is it safe to drive it in 2 wheel drive?or is there a possibility that it will get damaged in some way.thanks

    i honestly can't see why it would be a problem as long as the centre driveshaft is removed and the 2 front wheels a free wheeling but you will notice a lack of steering as with most 2wd's

    It won't hurt the truck at all. But you will see a decrease in steering and handling capability.

    Taking out the center driveline gives the slipper/center diff assembly the possibility of not keeping completely true and straight, you could either shatter a spur or the spline for the driveshaft will melt a hole of it's own in the center driveshaft area.

    You'd probably be better off taking off the front driveshafts at the wheels. But that's just me.

    it won't effect the diff as the main shaft floats on the diff output.
