    Adding 2-Speed to TRX Sport RTR or kit

    I see there is a 2-speed upgrade available that can be added to the Sport. My question is, since I will be driving quite a bit on paved surfaces or grass, with occasional trails and the odd crawl in between, would the addition of a 2-speed contribute to more drivetrain wear at higher speed since the diffs are always locked?

    I don't think so, but you might see more tire wear if you are constantly doing high speed on hard surface.

    Your motor will get hotter running in high gear and running locked diffs. Just keep and eye on it for the first couple of places and you should be good.

    I would leave the Sport as it is really, maybe put a cheap set of wheels and tyres on for prolonged hard surface use.
