Traction control isn't anything new. It's been around since at least mid 2000s in common use.the new wrx's are suppost to have a system that would apply the brakes to that tire in the air, allowing more torque to be applied to the rear axle and as a result to the tire firmly on the ground. ither that system is broke, was disabled on purpose, the video is a hoax, the driver had a heart attack, or subaru lies about this system's existence.
so this brake actuation as a work around solution to open diffs is in every car with traction control?
Zax. I can hit the traction control button lift a wheel and have the same issue this car has. I've done it in my WRX out of curiosity. With the traction control on the brake is applied and the car does not have the issue. I've done this multiple times. This says that traction control is disabled in some way.You can't disable the AWD system on any WRX.
I'm trying to hide my frustrations here, but most people really don't seem to understand how AWD works and why the WRX AWD system is nothing special. I suppose we can thank Subarus marketing for people thinking that "symmetrical AWD" is somehow better.

Most vehicles use this in some fashion. Even with an LSD you have to provide some friction to spin the opposite wheel. If you lift the entire wheel off the ground even torsen diffs act as open diffs and just spin the lifted wheel.only awd or is it in any fwd or rwd cars too?
also you can disable awd on a wrx, it just takes a little more than a button or fuse to accomplish.
