4x4 boosted launch?

When doing this do u just leave your truck in 4x4 the whole race? Or just launch then back to 4x2? I know in my Z71 u cant go very fast in 4 hi.

You can leave it in 4x4 the whole time. It wont hurt anything. You would be hard pressed to even attempt to switch it back during a race.

You can flip the switch back to 4x2 but it will stay in 4x4 until you take the load off the driveline.

You're not gonna hurt the transfer case. Just race it and have fun, but most importantly, WIN!
