“I recently bought a Slash 4×4 and hear guys are running a center diff.
Whats the benefits?”
(name and address withheld by request)
Cubby- The Slash 4×4 is a great truck, congrats on your new fly ride. So about that fancy dancy center diff, what’s the real scoop? If you dig pulling massive wheelies,
the center diff is not for you. With the center diff installed, the moment the front wheels come off the ground, the diff will transfer power away from the rear wheels to the front wheels, resulting in the front end coming back down to terra firma in a hurry. The trade off is the center diff will make your truck easier to drive from a dead stop, and will also make your truck more controllable in the air. My final verdict- if you are bashing, just running the stock slipper is great, if you do a lot of track driving and/or jumping, at least give the center diff a try.
I wanna ask this girl Ashley to prom, what’s the best way to do it?
Cubby- Yes indeed J.D., it’s that time of year again, prom season. First piece of advice, don’t just drop a bomb out of left field. By this I mean make sure the chick knows you exist. If you are already fairly close to her great, and you can skip too piece of advice number two. If aren’t “close” with her, at least a couple weeks before you intend on asking her, you need to be talking to her at least once a day. I mean, if some chic you didn’t know at all came up and asked you to prom, you’d assume she was psycho. Once you’ve talked to her enough that she knows you exist, you just gotta show some stones and ask. Don’t beat around the bush, don’t candy coat it, just be clear and concise. Exactly what you need to say is “Will you go to
prom with me?”. If she says yes, you are dialed (and I expect a full report after your prom).If she says no, be a man, hold your head high, and move on to greener pastures. There are over 3 BILLION women on this planet, trust me, there IS one out there for you.
