Check out these unbiased experiments.
Subaru AWD against other popular makes in slippery road simulations.
In response to video comments: This is not a rigged setup. There are no chains holding back the competitors cars. This was also shown live to an audience for training purposes. Sorry to bust everyones doubts.
How a Differential Works and Types of Differentials

Top 5 small off-road worthy Crossovers reviewed
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Wikipedia says, "a crossover is a vehicle built on a car platform and combining, in highly variable degrees, features of a sport utility vehicle (SUV) with features from a passenger vehicle, especially those of a station wagon or hatchback." We simply like to say that the crossover is the new family truckster. Here are the Top 5 off-road worthy crossovers that we've driven in 2011.
Subaru All Wheel Drive Traction Testing
Symmetrical. All-Wheel Drive. Control the road.
You need balance and an even distribution of power for maximum traction, instead of the slip-then-grip alternative. Every Subaru comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for better stability, efficiency and a quicker response to slippery conditions.

Real Man's 4WD Track
A Land Rover Defender drives up a "Real Man's" 4WD track.
One brave soul attempted it in a Landcruiser but failed before even getting both sets of wheels on the ramp. He is currently at home trying to fix his Exhaust.
The video was taken at the Maitland 4WD & Camping Show 2009 and the ramp is 5.5M above the ground.
The majority of the drive is done with the driver seeing nothing but sky.

Top 4 Crossovers that can never go off-road
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Here's an odd fact. Many of today's newest crossover can't go off-road. Of course that doesn't mean that they are not fun. It just means that while they look like they could take you to Everest and back, they can really only go on snow and dirt covered roads. Here are our top 4 fun non-offroad worthy Crossovers revealed and reviewed that we've driven this year.
Honda CR-V Real Time All Wheel Drive
Trying to climb a ramp.
1. First I started on the flat ground but I had no problems to climb
2. So I tried again to loose the traction but I couldn't... The CR-V climbs too easily, I quit
3. I decided to stop in the middle hoping it will break the traction, and yes AWD kicked in, ESP is on (around 62nd second)
4. Then around 01:35 I switched ESP off and repeated the exercise
Be it tires or AWD - I learned my lesson - if you want to reach the top do not stop on an icy hill no matter what :)
1st attempt at 01:00 - ESP On
Then ESP Off
A VERY lucky escape...
A very lucky escape for one of my friends after her bike decides to dump the engine oil in the middle of a series of tight bends, no idea how she managed to stay on that bike!
The oil was dripping off the back tyre when she pulled over...
The bike was in the garage yesterday for new tyres and they offered to change the oil for her, it nearly cost her her bike, or worse, on the other side of that crash barrier is a 50 foot drop.
She has posted a comment in this video now saying that the garage was MOTORRAD in Avenida San Pablo, 28 in Coslada, Madrid.
If you are ever in Madrid and you need some work done to your bike, don't go there!
