Would be great for a mud bike.

I would hate to grab for the right brake on a trail going 30mph and have the right front only lock up!

Yeah haha, that would get the heart rate accelerating quite quickly wouldn’t it!! Like you say for mud bikes and dedicated ATV park rides it’s a perfect solution, worked very well too in that video.

I ran a $25 spool locker on old 300. At speed turned great. Low end was harder & needed 8pt turns lol. But was amazing. No need on ta trail machine though...

Fiddle brakes, very common on 4x4 trials motors like Land Rovers. Lock one side, turn steering hard over and give it some welly, watch it turn on a sixpence. Banned in a lot of clubs due to unfair advantage.

Wow , nice 300 , his locking setup seems to work well , like the way the ex plastics look --------- only thing I would have done different is I would have had on at the least tennis shoes , I am afraid of snapping turtles LOL

With stock tyres and a new machine I quite agree Wilson but with big tyres and old diffs.... Unfortunately he’s right. Also, to maintain forward motion and be able to lock the diff the ‘fiddle brake’ option is far superior to the OEM locking ability. Pull the front brake on a stock machine and you stop, once your stopped your pretty much doomed in deep mud.

He maybe right on his machine (i think someone else built and owns it) ,all I'm saying his statement was wrong... The video proves it.

Sam, you got any close pics. Or more videos.....?
