PostSubject: A-Trac and rear locking    Sat Mar 30, 2013 11:21 am

I bought my fj used and the previous owner had done a few mods himself. I never got to talk to him so ive been figuring out what hes done myself. Yesterday i was testing to see if my A-Trac stayed on when i locked the rear and the A-Trac light stayed on when i got the rear to lock up. So i was wondering if that definently meant that he had done that mod or does anyone know how to tell if thats been done?

basically you need to make the front wheels slip...if they start to slip then if you have ATRAC then it will kick in..and the chattering will commence...
