Insight would be garbage, we need real world examples. You will find out in a couple of months when the snow is heavy.

Re: Snow

We need to wait for the winter when there's a few of these on the road in deep snow conditions. When QD was introduced in the early WJs, there were quite a few complaints that the system wasn't working as it should. It turned out that the gerotor diffs needed to be slipping a bit before enough pressure was built to engage the limited slip. The system worked, but not as folks thought it should.

Re: Snow

I can not wait for winter, and I hope it is a snowy one this year.
