Really interesting article. Thank you. I love cool engineering articles that explain stuff about how our trucks work.

If you guys like cool engineering stuff, here’s the Focus RS AWD system, quite sophisticated actually. (Not a Raptor, but still a Ford.)

Thanks for posting....that was particularly interesting, had never heard of this.....no center diff and different front/rear axle ratios, wow.

I think sometimes we all get caught up on the flaws with our cars/trucks, or why we have to pay 50-80k, for a F-150, and forget about the crazy amount of complicated engineering that goes into the simplest of parts, like a front diff. I know I’m guilty of that.

That’s why I love articles like the OP’s. Thanks @jeanco.

Good article, thanks for sharing.

FYI: This T-Case is built at Borg Warner's plant in South Carolina, which was heavily damaged by a tornado last month. Ford sent a team of engineers down to assist Borg Warner with rebuilding the plant and assembly line; they made a record turn around and it's now back up and ready for production.

my friend sent me the article about sound in electric car(page 13)and by case found out about the raptor!
he owns a Focus RS (drift mode is insane) so i am sending back the video from Traffic 22.
I live in Oregon and when is raining 4A is a priority.
