or put another way: is control of 15% of the torque distribution all that? will it even be perceptable? someone please shine some light my way.

I'm pumped about the automatic portion of the DCCD. Like I said before they announced the DCCD would even be offered, I think the manual portion of the control will be missued quite a bit. Except for people that really know how to use it, people will just set the power all the way to the back to get the back end out easier. Why....I bet they don't even know why except to 'drift.'

I like the idea of a computer altering where the power is going front to back. That's why I'm excited about it.

I would agree fully only after playing with that thing in manual mode after some time can one learn maybe how to tune it on certain road conditions e.g gravel, snow etc.

whoa! :eek: where have i been? there's an auto portion? meaning that torque will be automagically moved around as necessary?? this sounds like how the automatic transmission versions of subaru's awd system operates; the torque split is continuously variable. (anyone know the range of split? i think the MT version is a fixed 50/50, but i don't know what it is for the AT.)

anyway, how is the auto part controlled? is it based on wheel spin? or is it based on g-sensors and steering input. (i'm thinking about the skyline r34 that moves torque around based, think, on those inputs.)

if dccd/auto is controlled by the former, then it's nothing *amazingly* new is it? seems like it's a combination of the torque split ecu from an AT and a MT. (roughly speaking. i suspect it's not that simple.)

thanks for the links. those were in my "to read" stack. i'd read only part of the scooby thread before. in the end, i think we'll just have to drive it and see. bottom line though is that i'll have to up it in automatic when my wife drive it. ;)

all the clunking and shuddering that is talked about reminds me of the good ole days with my '82 subaru hatchback GL with the funky third headlight and manual transfer case. i could never get enough of feeling the difference when cornering in snow when going from 2wd vs 4wd/hi. it was like four-wheel steering.

It definately took me a while to get through all those posts and have even a little understanding. Like you 4MLA1FN I will start in auto and then start playing ince I am comfortable with the feel.
