    A little something for you, this time with an actual car ;)
    This ETK 800 is using all open diffs with a clutch based transfer case.
    Both diffs and the clutch of the AWD system are electronically controlled, meaning that the open diffs try to minimize unwanted speed differences via brake application and the AWD clutch only engages the secondary axle if needed.
    You can also see some drive mode work in there, which is what controls all of this at a higher level.
    As a little bonus, I added a drift mode that disables the AWD and locks the rear diff a bit more aggressively for better wheelspin :) (If a top end model of this brand would continue to use open diffs with e-locking is debatable of course, you know the drill with my test platforms by now...)

    Sorry for the two-screen-recording, but there's so much data, can't show it otherwise...

    As always, no guarantee for when this will be released, it's part of a massive ESC, TC, whatever overhaul, and I'm literally showing you almost all of the currently working things (notice the lack of ESC and TC...).

    BTW: These are results of almost a year of research and planning, slowly things are starting to come together, what a great feeling :)
