I wanted to put up poll to gauge the interest in an upgrade IWE. What I am planning it to strip all the guts out of the IWE removing the spring/vacuum parts/and flimsy 1/4 gear ring with a solid gear ring. This would cause the front axle to be locked at the hubs and no more shearing/rounding the teeth off the IWE gear ring. There would be more noise, loss of fuel economy (figure 1 or 2 mpg), and wear on tires and drivetrain.. The benefits would be fully locked hubs, no slipping or clunking, no vacuum lines, vacuum solenoids, or check valves to fail.. I do not have final design of the uprade IWE yet, I am working on it. I do not know what long term effects to drivetrain or axles. This is just in the idea stages right now..
