Aftermarket DCCD system?

Is there such an animal? A freind of mine said hes seen a STI with a aftermarket controller for his DCCD allowing for a full 0/100 power ratio

Um, I don't think so. I don't think the clutch design in the center diff will allow for that. I could be wrong but I really doubt it.

I know Prodrive makes differential control units, I don't know if you could get one from them to fit a US spec WRX though.

www.prodrive.com, but I don't think they market their systems to the public. Contact them and find out.

DCCD doesn't work like that. It doesn't actually control the amount of torque front to rear. It controls when the center diff locks. If you "lock" it, it keeps the car from transferring power to the wheel with traction, which allows the wheels to slip making it possible to do donuts.

the only car i know of that can go from AWD to RWD is a skyline. and that's an ON/OFF thing not a percentage front/rear. Lambo's can also transfer almost all their power to the rear but even that's only 10/90, not 0/100.

Correct... in affect it will make your car like a 4WD truck if you set it 50/50. Think of it kinda like that. Now I've seen people doing brake stands in STis before with it set with more torque to the rear but that is REALLY bad for your car. Seriously, if you want a car that can do donuts then get a Camaro or get some crappy tires and lay down some axis-spins in your STi. Pointless if you ask me but then again I'm not 16 anymore.

The tranny is not designed like that. you'd need a completely redesigned transmission. I think the skyline uses a transfer case to supply power to the front wheels. so it's like a truck. you can turn the AWD off. If you want a RWD car, just buy one. They're a dime a dozen.

It is as simple as pulling up your e-brake and another couple of simple steps. Read much?

Thats ok, Middletown isn't really known for high intelligence, I personally would "Come on over" to Portland.
