You do realize people have actually destroyed their own Range Rovers in the UK to protest various issues they've had with them, and they still sell in record numbers. You waiting a week before going public, haha, isn't going to get you anywhere. Just start the new thread and explain."nothing at all new" exactly. I am going to give LandRover another week to get back to me, before I comment publicly on my Velar first edition situation.
There still is a drive shaft. The driveshaft is between the transfer case and the differential.A search for "Chain" on that page leads to this section describing AWD. Doesn't get much cleared than that.
The system is built around a single-speed transfer case featuring a multi-plate wet clutch and a *CHAIN* drive to the front axle. Designed to be compact and quiet in operation, the transfer case’s main advantage is its speed: depending on conditions it can make the transition from 100 per cent rear bias to fully locked in only 165 milliseconds; transient torque delivery to the front axle can take as little as 100 milliseconds. This makes the AWD system incredibly responsive, which delivers exceptional performance in all conditions.
How about a Drive shaft, and not a chain. The velar's AWD system definitely not traditional.
LMAO... Finally getting decent sleep, laid back relaxed like i used to be and bought another Granite to play with. This is my third Granite P38 of the original 10. Over 300K miles and rattles like an old diesel tank. Number one went to 365K miles So I'll see how far I can push this one...And RRToadHall, why are you in such a good mood?
