Is FrontTrak half a quattro?

To:   quattro

Here's my "I should probably know better" question of the week: is Audi's
FrontTrak, the front half of a quattro?

The reason I ask has to do with a fairly recent trip up my driveway after
an icestorm. The momentum from the street carried me almost up to the top
of my driveway and then the front end started searching for traction:
right-left, right-left; I could feel it and see it. The power was obviously
being transmitted from side to side and almost perfectly rythmic. So what
gives here, do I have the front half of a quattro, or what? And how cool
must it be to have the rear end doing the same sort of power transfer
