I've looked pretty extensively online about how much a forester off road and done some research about the drive train with the goal of seeing how it stacks against 'more serious' 4wds, specifically those with central diff locking. I have heard that turning off VDC can be helpful in some slippery conditions like soft sand as the computer can get confused if all four wheels are slipping. I was wondering how the centre differential in CVT models of the forester split power when VDC is off. it is my understanding that by default they split power 60/40 to the back and front but if the vehicle detects slipping it is able to redistribute power when needed. If VDC is disabled will the centre diffrential 'Lock' itself to a 60/40 power split between front and rear? or will it split some other way? or will it simply act like an open deifferential? Sorry if this is wrong place for this thread, I'm new here.
