Max speed in 4x4

Yo guys, just wondering if it's safe to run in 4x4 at high speeds (45 + mph)? Didnt see anything in the manual so I assume no issues on doing so but just wanted to be safe. Thanks

In the dirt I prefer 4x4 at max speeds tends to stay where I'm pointing the dang thing.And yah the manual will tell you uh to have your seatbelt on and without for inclines lol (shouldn't hurt it at all just stay off the pavement while all are churning)

Ace, I see your a jokester from your posts....so not sure if I should take this literally. You really think these machines are quicker in 4x4? How about open diff vs diff lock? Hard for me to tell honestly, but I would think diff lock would be faster then open?

I know they are faster in 4wd. Put it on the track or in the woods . Put it in 4wd run to a point while timing and do it again in 2wd . You will see first hand if not in 4wd you are slowing down . No one races sxs in two drive .

Locked front diff is faster but more tiresome and a lot harder to control do to which ever wheel is getting the most traction the machine pulls that way. So when under full throttle you are always fighting the steering wheel . Great for mud not for going fast .
