Have you checked the cable and linkage arm on the differential?

Maybe the spider gears within the differential are broken. That’s my guess.

You’ll likely need to disassemble the rear housing to uncover the root cause.

Good luck and let us know what you find.

Suggest you get a copy of the technical manual for your machine.

200mph may be right, but before you tear down the diff, look at the rear axles while in gear with wheels blocked. A stripped CV joint would act like that, so see if one axle turns without the wheels turning.
