    If anyone has heard of the new awd system that honda is working on. could someone please fill me in on it. or post articles. From what i have heard it is supposed to be "revolutionary" But all automakers use that word.

    Thanks

    Sounds awfully complicated. Sounds like what Subaru does, except Subaru uses all mechanical, where the Honda system is all computer controlled with all sorts of variables. But I'm sure that if anyone can pull it off, Honda can.

    the only way honda will have a good AWD system is if they realize their cars need more TORQUE!!!
