Right. And since torque is the force applied, and power is work performed with the force applied, then TECHNICALLY 100% of power can go to the rear...if the front wheels have absolutely no traction. Still, all 4 wheels would be driven equally if the clutch pack were completely locked up. Shame, considering much fun can be had with a 70/30 rear split...

Yes, I've seen the APR MaxR drifting videos, but the GTI will step out the rear too...just not under throttle.
Favorite Color: EXPLOSIONS
Dislikes: Not-EXPLOSIONS

Jubblies. That is all.
