    AWD tranny with welded center driving with no drive shaft?

    OK so I went to the track last night to get some practice in for the up coming race on Sunday and broke my rear diff cover and a few other things and I really wanted to enter the car show and race but the show would still be nice to enter on Sunday and being that I don't have the time to get everything back to racing order buy then. I just thought I would make sure it was safe for me to just pull everything apart such as the rear diff out the rear axles out and the drive shaft and drive to the track and enter the car show at least. So I was wondering if I would also pull the t-case or leave it in? I have a welded center in the car so it should be OK to drive on FWD if I am right I just don't know if I have to pull the t-case or I can leave it in.
    Thanks for any help like always!!

    If you choose to drive it like that, just be sure to bolt in a stub shaft into the rear bearings. They will separate with that much driving.

    Otherwise, there is no issue driving without the rear drivetrain in place with a welded center. At least. As long as you didn't break anything else. To be safe, I would pull the T-case as well to keep it from potentially rotating dry.

    Yeah I thought of having to pull the T-case so it wont loose all the fluid after I posted LOL.
    But thanks Marcus I just wanted to make sure before I did it.
