Part Time 4WD

A thing that you have to be aware of when using a decoupler, is that if
you use G or reverse that you should engage 4WD. This is how the
factory system worked automatically to spread the load. At the very
least, do not use full throttle.

A decoupler decoupled achieves the same state as a totally passive VC or
a driveshaft removed, so spreading the load isn't happening in any
scenario.

I've been driving my syncro for over 14 months in either of the last 2
states and not had a problem whatsoever.

When it comes to decouplers, I think if anyone wants to get out there
worry beads about this issue, then worry about those driving around with
no decoupler and an aggressive VC ....
