^ just to clarify, this is BAD INFO.... not true... the DCCD adjusts the lock of the center dif, not the transfer of power...bonecracker said:it doesnt take alot of power to do donuts... u can do it with stock STI, because they have DCCD controller which u can put most of the power to the rear wheels
That was a nice explanation in layman's terms. Thx.:tup:all4bspinnin said:^ just to clarify, this is BAD INFO.... not true... the DCCD adjusts the lock of the center dif, not the transfer of power...
u basically can either make your car AWD or 4WD like a truck for offroad (closer to lock position)
Thats why when you try and turn the car slowly with the DCCD set to one of the positions close to lock you can feel the car bind up. Its like taking a 4wd truck, putting it in 4wd and making a turn on pavement, it starts to jump becuase both wheels are turning at the same rate... aka 4wd. On an awd car, it allows the outside wheel to slip to keep the car from jumping...
do a little more studying on the DCCD my friend
but thats not manually controlled520hpSTi said:The DCCD does transfer power. In full rear it is split 35F 65R in the 04/05s. They changed it later on. That means it wont compensate for when there is slippage. In auto, when it detects slippage it will transfer power where it is needed.
^taken from your post... see i am right cheifbonecracker said:Open Differential Benefit:
The benefit of this property (the one in bold print) is that it helps when the car goes through a turn. In the case of a turn, the front and rear driveshafts must be allowed to rotate at different speeds, because the turn causes the rear wheels to track inside the front wheels, and so the rear driveshaft will turn at a slower speed than the front driveshaft. The center differential allows this to happen while still keeping the same torque split between front and rear shafts.
