4-hi launching

when you launch in 4-hi do you leave it in 4-hi when you keep going or do you switch back after you launch?

I wouldn't wanna change when you are giving it that much FUN.... it might just happen to break something and I am sure you don't want that

mine has auto locking hubs too, but sometimes the right front hub wants to stick so i have to do it manually.

wont matter because they wont disengage until after you let go the throttle... their will be too much pressure on it..... oh and my hubs were sticking too... auto hubs tend to do that so im just replacing mine with Warn Premium Hubs next week......

will it hurt anything to run say a quarter mile in 4-hi? or would it just slow me down?

nothing will happen as long as you don't turn... well now let me rephrase that nothing should happen but remember when you start using things in the way they are not intended they are bound to fail sometime... so for now it will be find but you will prob have to peplace the hubs sooner...
