The automatic Subaru's do the exact same thing. Its something like 90 front 10 rear until slippage is detected, then it sends more power to the rear wheels.

Def. looks better than the current Focus but it looks too German... like they stole it straight from BMW... I prefer the older ones still

I only work on STI's, and WRX's. I've done a H6 swap into an Impreza; it was quite a challenge.


I prefer all 4 wheels to drive the car equally until a corner is detected by the computer seeing steering input and the front wheels turning faster (thus letting the center differential slip)
