    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 :)

    Ok, we got the tire eating issue fixed with the roller ramp prop, so all that is missing now is a mesh. You asked for it, so here's a look at just the jbeam viz, not pretty, but that's all there is ;)

    It's a long video showing some of the things that can be done with this prop and how the next generation AWD system works when doing various tests.
    You can also look at the powertrain debug app in "Power" mode and see how the system dynamically puts more power to the wheel(s) with more grip.
