Is my quattro system working?

Hello all,

Thanks for the input on my rough ride problem.  It "must" have been packed
snow somewhere, because as mysteriously as it appeared, it has now vanished.

My real reason for writing is to find a sure fire way to tell if the q
system on my 86kcstq is functioning properly.  I tried accelerating with two
wheels on pavement and two on packed snow on the shoulder of a road.  The
way I understand the quattro system, which may not be correct, is that most
of the power should go to the right side (the pavement side) and the left
side shouldn't spin too much.  Is this thinking flawed?  If so, is there a
fool proof way to see if all's well in drive train land?  

I'm going on a pretty long trip(around 1,100 or 1,200 miles round trip) and
if this thing is acting up, I'd like to know before I leave.

Thanks for all your continued help.
