Skyline GT-R R33 (1995-1998 *plz Confirm*)(Edit)

Mechanical rear wheel drive with a clutch to transfer power to the front differential. Torque-vectoring rear differential.

"The clever electronic control system is fed by all the information ... such as G-force, boost pressure, throttle position etc, in addition, the speed of individual wheels measured by ABS wheel speed sensors. By these information, the computer knows whether the car is running out of cornering limit or not. If not yet, the multi-plate clutches won't intervene, thus the car can power slide through the corner smoothly. In case out of limit, the multi-plate clutch will engage and send torque to front wheels, increasing traction."

X-Trail(Edit)

All Mode selectable all wheel drive system - normally front wheel drive vehicle, in AUTO mode rear axle engages when front wheels start to slip, power is variably distributed from 100:0 to 50:50 front to rear. In AUTO mode the system works as an automatic all wheel drive system.

In 2WD mode, the clutch is unlocked permanently. However, even when in 2WD mode, rear wheels can sometimes be engaged by electronic control unit, for example under heavy acceleration.

In LOCK mode the tranfer clutch is permanently locked - power distribution 50:50. If vehicle speed increases, the vehicle automatically goes to AUTO mode, then, when speed decreases, it switches back to LOCK. When transfer clutch oil is overheated, the vehicle goes into 2WD mode.

Juke 1.6 4WD(Edit)

Torque-Vectoring system. Data provided by different sensors (which monitor wheel speed, steering angle,throttle position, yaw rate) are analized by the 4WD controller, which is able to understand how to split the torque between four wheels.

There isn't a central differential, torque is sent to the rear axle using a shaft linked to front differential. The rear differential is replaced by two clutches which (if necessary) split the torque sent to the rear axle between the two wheels.

Torque-Vectoring system automatically adds torque to the outside rear wheel in corners to make the car turn quicker.

Test drove an 07 X-Trail (T31) the other day.. have to say i was not impressed by the 4x4. The problem for me is that i have a steep private gravel road with 3 sharp corners up to my house. Since the X-trail has no differential the 4wd generates a lot of wheelspin in the corners.. also tried a Skoda Yeti and Octavia (Haldex 4 and 5) up the same road with no wheelspin or problems whatsoever driving up..

Also note that here:
en.wikipedia.org

Nissans all-mode 4wd system is listed under "part-time" awd and not multiplate clutch like someone said bellow..

A multiplate clutch, similar to Haldex, but on Xtrail 4x2 and 4x4 modes can be forced by using a button.

A multiplate clutch, similar to Haldex, but 4x2 and 4x4 modes can be forced by using a rotating knob.

I have a nissan x trail and to be honist i think its a joke as a 4x4. The the snow that has just come and gone i struggled big time in this. The thing is i got the car stuck up my drive and put the car into 4x4 lock mode, this did nothing the 4x4 system does not seem to be working can someone send me an email with help as what to do or am i doing something wrong?.

Regards Darren.

Hi, I think it really depends on tires too, no matter how good any system is if you run summer tires or worn tires you still won't grip, personally I have always used general grabbers, road(uhp) and now all terrains, makes a world of difference to the vehicle

I have an X-Trail and have driven many off road vehicles, and the X-Trail is very capable, it's only down fall perhaps is ground clearance.
Use AWD mode in snow, leave Lock alone, the system will take care of it. Ice is every cars enemy do not forget. Snow driving is about putting down as little power as possible, like driving on eggs - you put down to much power and you get scrambled. So no jabbing the gas pedal, and sharp steering.
Snow recently formed is fine, it when it becomes compressed or ice your problems may start. If you do not have chains, first look at those tyres, lower the pressure by a say four pounds, it may be enough. It gives you better footprint, better grip.
M+S tyres or All terrain tyres would be help, we drove most of the winter in 6" with out issue on cheap M+S tyres at stock pressure.

Yes, it is. I have almost always on Auto.
QashQai have the same 4wd like X-trail, wright?

Great wiki!!

X-Trail, third paragraph:
"In 2WD mode, the clutch is unlocked permanently. However, even when in 2WD mode, front wheels can sometimes be engaged by electronic control unit, for example under heavy acceleration."
Should read "... rear wheels can sometimes be engaged ..."

I would also suggest that this feature may be nothing more than an unintended artifact of the multi-disk clutch mechanical design. Residual drag of the control clutch (at zero control current) may be enough to actuate the main clutch (via cam plate) if the speed difference is high enough.

Missing system...

Skyline???

Re: Missing system...

The Skyline is conceptually the same.
Mechanical rear wheel drive, with a clutch to transfer power to the front differential.

I forgot the best part, the Skyline had a torque vectoring rear differential.
