lol, no one has tried it because the people that want evos... get evos. If you want to do it, go right ahead, but it will be more expensive and less powerfull than if you had just gone out and gotten an AWD dsm and modded the engine and trans that it came with. If you hate the DSM or subie body style, it would probably be easier to take the body off of whatever TD you've got and stick it on the awd car. Less custom machining, and more opportunity to put in a cage. DSM engines are also cheaper for BIG power in the long run anyways.
Oh yeah, the diff is not designed to drive other differentials, it will break. Same HP I realize this, but they are going to be super long driveshafts, driving pieces with significanlty more inertia than a set of tires, which will put lots of loads on the output of the diff that it was not designed for.
Sorry for the negative post, but what kind of advantages other than traction (duh) are you going to gain from going with AWD?
