    for gears, do some in town driving where you have alot of stop lights. keep it under 55 mph. what this will do is heat cycle the gears. if you don't have a lot of stop and go traffic, then go out and do about 15 miles continuous under 55 mph. then let it cool down. be nice for the first 100 miles.

    My strange came with a sticker that had the break in procedure on it. It said to drive 50 miles with a 1/2 hour cool down. Do that for the first 250 miles then first fluid change at 1000 miles.

    posi would have been nice but this will work for now

    Brand new Strange engineering 12 bolt with 3 channel abs, 33 spline spool, Motive 4.10 gears, LPW super cover, UMI LCA relocation brackets and swaybar mounts already welded on, never even had oil in it.

    Looks good. That spool will make cruising a pain in the ass. I got mine with posi, backing plates, and upgraded cover for $2450. It came completely assembled and even had fluid in it.

    you're going to spin the inside tire on turns and be extremely careful in the rain.

    Nice buy man. The 12 bolt should hold up great.

    However, I can't imagine having my car without a posi rear. I mean its bad enough with a posi and 285/40 Eagle F1's, I can't imagine having just one wheel spin when you jump on it, especially around turns.

    Good luck with it.

    No, man, both wheels spin at the same time with a spool. But if you're going around a turn, that means the wheel that needs to spin less can't, so it spins.
