    Re: Front diff and cv's

    The front hubs are automatic. The front side shafts, CVs, diff and prop shaft are not spinning under normal 2WD conditions. So removing those things will give you a weight saving of maybe 20kg. The...

    Re: Duster Brakes

    Do you drive the road on your brakes in neutral or are you in gear and use the engine to brake?

    If you do that distance only on brakes you will destroy them pronto.
