I use sullivan "gold-n-cable" with my lockers.

http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=18636

I also think it might be possible to convert a TLT-axle with my solution.
Need to drill a hole in the axle in the same position as on the High Lift.

Thanks

Mr.Pink I'm using gold-n-cable too, but mine seems to be bigger than yours. I preferred that cause the little one doesn't give me the idea to be strong enough. Maybe I was wrong

Very nice work on your HL. Simple and clear. I like a lot the idea of the lockers actuated by the shifting servo.

It could be a good solution if I'll run out of channels

wow didnt see this tread ! awesome work , the system is very similar to the modification that hafner does for robbe axles, the problem of robe's is a spider gear gets weaked and might break , i already broke one ... this looks much stronger

Well I have to admit I didn't test them seriously. I used them in a GTG and they seems to work fine for a while, but there something to solve with the cable and the actuators... after some time I could lock the diff only with my hands and not with the servo.

I just had an idea that could solve the problem, but I have to build it before I can tell ya something.

I wouldn't use this system with 2.2s though...

Thanks for your response!
Do you think the strength could be increased with three locking "teeth" from the collar to the side gear?

My thought was that if I could somehow lock and unlock just the rear differential in my CR01 (2.2s) I could then use another servo to control cutting brakes right or left. So this would then make the steering work better similar to front DIG (for crawling). This would happen by locking or braking the inside rear tire. It was just a thought and may not be practical (2 servos = 4 channels), but it could use small axle mounted servos if there is room rather than the cables.

That's a great idea, but consider that you'll have the front wheels spinning at different speed from the free rear one...

I think the weak point in this set up is are the slots into the gear.
Surely 3 lock pins are better than 2 and maybe 4 is even better and engage more frequent

Good point! the one rear wheel will spin faster than the fronts...right? It also could end in spectacular breakage if for some reason the rear differential did not unlock and the cutting brakes worked well. Pow!

There was a link on page 2 from 635 http://www.der-getriebedoktor.de/shop2/index.htm It is a German site that sells them. Another that sells beautiful planetary reduction axles is http://www.afv-model.com It is only close to $300 euros per axle! LOL

so are there holes in one of the internal diff gears also? or is it just friction?
