Re: How does Subaru AWD work vs Torsen?

>From what I hear, Subaru uses two different setups. FOr the automatic,
it's definitely VC, with split of something like 90:10 (or even 99:1). But
for the stick shift, it's 50:50. I often wondered what sort of different
setup that results in vast difference in different Subarus. It seems like
Subarsu also tried many different setups, including AWD with high and low
range gear -- just like those 4WD SUVs.
