That's a great flip side argument/hypothesis and just hope doing the tire swaparoo will yield some sort of definative answer vs nothing changed. I think it would prove very useful information no matter which way it goes for future reference unless somebody has a direct line with polaris engineering and can get an answer that has probably been ran 20 ways to Sunday already for them to market the system they did.
But playing devils advicate, the slight difference we share, I don't expect it to lock up and stay locked up, I just want it to lock up faster that my current "old non close ratio" does now. When plowing like I did for 6hrs today, every stand still take off I can feel rears spin a bit/dig down through snow and then a clunk as front diff engages. Later this afternoon I stripped down to bare quad for blast through the neighborhood to local timber for a quick trail blast. Going down the hard pack streets I got the same rear end wanting to come around as usual, not 360*/doughnut bad, but bad enough I naturally was prepared to counter steer or just gassed it harder to help try and straighten things out. In the woods, same story as always, speeds 5-15mph in low gear, awd switch on, tight turns, sometimes it would pull itself through turn, other times front kept going straight, sections where I could goose it to rengage front diff, it'd clunk and then pull itself back onto line I was shooting for to begin with, other times I had to stop and reverse or risk going head long into a tree at apex of outside corner I was trying to make.
Even keeping driveline rpm up out back, thinking I could find the exact tire combo with the varying lug height/design to force a full time awd would be lucky, but if I can drastically cut down the engagment time to mimic a almost full time awd when i want it and also make a less squirrely machine on hard pack roads/ice, then I will, for my sake/purpose call it mission achomplished. But so long as rear wheels/driveline speed is kept up, it should by all rights keep enough pressure on the hillard to stay engaged, and not overrun it, match it, and immediately disengage, it has to have as much reduction in driveline speed to disengage as it needs to engage...is what I'm thinking.
