Re: 4X4 DRIVER TRAINING CLASS

only slightly off topic....

Is the SMB supplied Atlas II transfer case the 2-speed or 4-speed version?

I have heard it desccribed in the past as the 4 speed version.

The reason I ask is the BB class states it is for 4x4s with a 2 speed transfer case. I don't know why that would be, but it is listed that way.

2 speed version (Hi and Low). Advanced Adpaters (makers of the Atlas) has a version with 4 ratios, going up to a 10:1 ratio. Stak offers a 3 speed transfer case.

I'm sure the "2 speed transfer case" requirement is just a legacy statement from when there were only 2 speed transfer cases, and not 4 speed cases. I'm sure the requirement is to keep the generic SUV that might be 4wd but without the needed crawl-ratio, out of the class.

In other words the "1"-speed version...
