    Adjusting Front/Rear Torque Split

    Ever since I saw this on Wangan Midnight I wondered if it was possible in real life. The Evo 5 driver said he changed the front/rear torque split to 35/65 giving it more of RWD characteristic. I looked it up and found it was possible but that it could only be controlled by the center differential gearing. I've been looking for more information on this but it's hard to find and I was just wondering if the front and rear are geared differently does that mean they'll spin at different rates? I'd really like to do this but not if I can't drive it without wrecking tires and possibly other things. If anyone knows of this subject plz educate me. Thx

    If you have DCCD you can.. for what it's worth, the stock torque bias of the 04-05 six speed is already 35/65. If you run it full open that is the characteristic that you will get.

    What is there to talk about? You don't have DCCD so you can't adjust it. That article explains DCCD pretty well.

    What kind of questions? If you want to be able to adjust anything you will need to perform a six speed swap.. that's a place to start. Unfortunately torque bias is non-adjustable, and the 04-05 six speed that has the torque bias you want has horrible gear ratios.

    Even if I don't have a DCCD, I still like learning these things. I'm always reading up on car things man. Who said you can only know about your own car??? And that sucks about the not being able to adjust the bias
