Quadra-Trac I Questions

Last night we had a little snow, and I was playing around a bit with my rental. Here's a couple of questions for you guys.

1) With traction control on or off, I hear some noises like griding as the different wheels are trying to spin. Obviously that's normal, but what is going on?

2) Will the rear diff ever lock, or is it one wheel wonder...per say.

3) With traction control off, could a guy kick the tail end out? Not saying I want to beat my jeep just wondering if you can play without the brakes automatically kicking in.

Thanks

1 - Probably the ABS doing the Brake Assisted Traction Control

2 - Never, it is wide open. QD-II has the electronic LSD.

3 - Probably never on dry pavement but on an extremely slippery surface it is possible. With QD-II and ESP turned off I had to work extremely hard to get it to kick out. However I am trained on vehicle control and would not recommend doing these kinds of things in any SUV.

I agree with drewman - in my QDII 5.7, you can slide it out on a wet surface, and even dry if the road is smooth enough, but with the 4wd, and the roll center, the vehicle reactions can be very twitchy and abrupt. i only recommend it in snow/ice conditions. the slight bias to the rear (few %) helps kick out the rear when the ground is slippery.

to fully turn off the ESP you have to hold button for like 10 seconds. if you just tap the button it only turns off a portion of the ESP.

Really, QT-II has an LSD? i'm not complaining because that is my system, but i thought it just had BCTS like the QT-I. I'm real happy if that is true.

My bad that was QD-I with the mechanical LSD. You are correct BTCS is what you have. I retract my original statement.
