    You need to send the power to the back or else you'll just sit there while the disconnected front hubs spin wildly...

    What is the main cause or damage by doing this? I have a 2010 wrx I just picked up a center diff and had it welded. But now I am debating after reading alot of bad? What are my other options for rwd? Is it because when welded it is not balanced?

    Has anyone has any issues in doing this? I had a friend weld my center diff, and when I reinstalled it, I could no longer freely spin the driveshaft. Is it possible the center isn't straight anymore?

    i have a 5mt wrx limited. the car is putting down 290whp right now, i want to convert it to an rwd but how reliable will it be for a daily? and when i say daily, i dont mean thrashing on it every day or taking it to the track. I just want to spin my rear tires occasionally and get sideways sometimes. If its not to reliable, im not to concerned lol im just curious, i want to see how much should i put in to this rwd conversion. Ps. im new here guys, go easy on me haha
