grid dancer 2

Hi!

Can anyone tell me if when using a grid dancer, there is any possibility
of damage to anything if used in permanent 50:50 mode?

50/50 should be fine, its only when in permanent RWD that the clutch packs (33/34) get the ump.

Quite why you'd want to run anything in 50/50 in the dry though is confusing

Thanks, just wanted to check as am used to subaru driving which is on 50:50 all the time.

There is no real evidence that running 50/50 damages anything. You will put quite a lot of extra torque though the transfer box that it is not designed to take. You will certainly wear though the clutch plates in a shorter time. I have seen a front diff blow out of the casing when hard launching with the 4WD set to 50/50.
It had been proven that when setting to RWD, there is no torque going to the front wheels, thus no issues there.

That's what the Nissan development engineers wanted to achieve- having looked at systems like Porsche and Audi, they wanted to keep the intimate feedback and driving feel of a RWD car. So the 4WD kicks in only when required...
