RE: a yaw'ning chasm....


before we go on yaw'ning perhaps we should get the fundamentals all sorted

the generation 1 locker *must* and does shift torque when it is *locked*.
(0%-100%-0% torque shift front to rear is certainly possible).

however, when all diffs are *open* *no* torque can be shifted.  all torque
outputs are equal, and 25% by definition (for awd).

you need to think about it some more.  once you understand this fundamental
principle, this will help your understanding of this whole issue....

In your original post you claim:

Not quite right above.  The first generation locker doesn't *shift* any
torque when locked, it is a fixed split 50/50.  It can't *shift* any torque
by definition.  When it is open, it can *shift* 100-0-100.  Let's think
