Can you make a GSR rear wheel drive?

hi guyz..

just wondering if it was possible to make a GSR rear wheel drive? and if so is it as easy as removing a fuse?

thank for any heads up on this Q's.. :D

nope sorry if only it were that easy...

it can be done, but takes more than that, you would need to lock (you could possible get a spline made up to do this) the centre diff, and remove the front drive shafts, that will work.

From what i have heard is you have to weld the center diff, take the front axles out and plug the holes. but i am not 100% sure

You'll need a
Evo 1,2,3 / GSR 2WD locking spline.
Rear wheel drive in a car with such a short wheelbase would be
'exciting' in the wet/on gravel.

There are some people who would say this is "mutilation" of an evo or GSR!
But whatever turns you on. Good luck and have fun. :)

this has been done before ,never rode in the car but the owner said it affected the handling quite badly and was for ever throwing transfer cases at it.
