Matching front & rear axle ratios?
OK. . .stupid question!
I'm new to modifying 4WD's. . .I haven't messed with axle gears in a 4WD before so I figured I'd better ask just to make sure I know.
Do your front and rear axle ratios need to match?
If they don't, what would be the advantage/disadvantage of this?
Thanks for cluing me in on this.
