I wasn't aware they offered rear wheel drive in our platform period?

Yeah really interesting ... the 4matic is fwd until rwd is needed ... supposedly
Who knows maybe this was a test with main gearbox in neutral to check for parasitic loss by rolling the rears? But the roll rate is kinda slow for that ...
Hopefully someone in the know can tell us

that be crazy if the software can be canceled out that easily. I know the new e when drift mode is engaged can make the car fully rear wheel drive. If this is the case I wonder if someone is working on coding this for track use.

Oh ... “disengage” the front diff and let the power take off drive the “fully engaged” rear diff? That would be cool.
Saw a video of the new 45s “drifting” thru a high speed turn ... damn thats fun!!
