Gotcha! So how is that much different than the T4? Is it like a limited slip in 4wd when not locked?

Hey Midwest I was the one with the green t4 . Sorry I did not stop by and get your number before I left, I had a good time riding with you guys and hopefully we can soon again. On did lock subject I never back up to unlock just turn the wheel left or right and usually it unlocks , if not jab the throttle to let pressure off your drive line and it will unlock. And before it is said that I must not ride hard I can tell you I push my t4 to the limit every time I start it lol. The can am diff does not allow you to technicaly climb, more of a point and shoot type of buggy

The T2 has a lever with a slider that can lock anywhere but why. You hold the lock button down and use it as needed with very good IMHO results. The Commander visco-lock sucked and any of my Teryx machine along with every other brand can out climb it on what we ride. I owned a 2011 Commander I am not a arm chair commander owner.

Yep but since the dealer replaced my actuator it has been a lot better. My front diff had a lot of water in it and the dealer said that may be why I was having trouble. Might wanna check that.

Gotcha! Not trying to be a thorn in your side just trying to gain some knowledge. I know the can am Visco lock sucks hind teet just curious as to why IYO the T2 set up is better than T4. In normal 4wd does the T2 act similar to the visco lock but also has the full lock capability b/c if so in my mind that would be ideal:beer:

Not ignoring you just busy with work. About to go out of town until Sat this afternoon. Missing my Wednesday ride.

The visco-lock in the Commander one front wheel needs to spin I think 4 revolutions before power is applied to the other front wheel. They make a QE model like is on their ATV's but people who went to then say it makes steering really heavy.

I am not sure if the T2 has a limited slip diff or not, I know it does not use limited slip diff oil in it like the commander or the T4. It uses regular motor oil in the font diff.


I personally LOVE the variable diff lever on the T2 for the crawling we do where you have to steer and can't backup and jump through a bunch of hoops to get it from DIFF lock back to 4x4 on the T4. I am still trying to figure it out, one ride it works good, the next it is a PITA. I MUCH prefer the T2 setup so far.

From the parts diagram on Rocky Mountain ATV, I don't see a clutch pack (I'm thinking like an automotive style limited slip at least) in their front axle diagram, just the locker. Are we sure these are limited slip? I thought they were open diffs (like my Tacoma TRD with rear locker) and are fully locked when the electric locker is activated.

That's what I thought and I am pretty sure I just misunderstood Magellan. I was thinking he was saying they have a better diff but I agree with him on how much of a pita it is to have to back up, turn the wheel, turn the key off to get it unlocked

Yea, i occasionally have to go through that song/dance routine to get the front to unlock, beats not being able to lock the front at all though!
