Re: Why not AWD
Ok, I have read the whole thread, and in many ways I agree with Phatfoto that having 3 out of 4 tires driven off half the output of the tranny is a bit disconcerting.
Under extreme acceleration what would slip at one tire or another do to this situation. Would it kill the PTO? They use overrun clutches in stock situations, is it for perfect operation with no kinks? Or is it a necessary part to keep the PTO from killing the whole system? If all the tires are the same size, and LSD only in the rear, what wouldn't allow enough slip to keep the rest of the drivetrain alive? As long as there is slip from side to side, how much loading would there be of the rest of the drivetrain?
Either way, I am watching this thread!
