Re: A4 Reliability

True for two wheel drive car vs. two wheel drive car.

Does not apply to all-wheel-drive vs. two-wheel-drive. On AWD you have more 
traction to start 
with. Two more wheels with traction is a hell of a lot more than advantage 
gained by optimum wheel spin. 
What about AWD with 10% slippage... just a thought.
