Default P/T kit acceleration info - FZJ-80

Today I went to a seculded area to conduct a test of acceleration with the front axle engaged and then disengaged, simulating stock truck versus P/T Kit. Here are the results:

95 FZJ-80 - Stock 4:10 gears - A/C off - Transmission in standard mode (not PWR) - Altitude approx 9500 msl. Timed 0-60 unmodified speedo, WOT to 60 mph, slightly uphill road.

First run with front axle engaged - 33.4 seconds

Second run with front axle disingaged = 31.7 seconds

It looks like the acceleration is approx 1.7 seconds faster with the system in 2WD.



Unscientific, but interesting. Terry

Thanks Terry

Like we needed proof that the 80 is a S L U G

- interesting data...I wish the data showed like 1/2 the time to get up to 60 though!
