Maybe people need more videos will better comparison. Maybe its too expencive to do as well. Who knows but pics and videos should bring more interest. Or not.

What would be nice is to have some comparison videos, same hill and ruts with and without locker and also versus other 4x4's.

And as you previously said, videos don't show how difficult it is in real and in your videos, it seems quite easy !

In the first 2 videos, I got about 3 metres before I could go no further with open diffs

But its not easy undestand when locker starts maybe you could like add text on video saying this is open diff, this locker. And if you show that on good angle it could be impressive, on such angle that we could see wheels.
I think its impressive just too expencive for me. But then im poor so yh haha.
Most impresive would be video when your cae going after big heavy moded 4wd cars without problems. I love those kind of videos allways.

Here is a comparison between a car with road tyres and locking diffs (SG), and a car with standard diffs and all terrain tyres (SF). It is the same track, taken months apart, in which time the track had become worse by the time the SG did it. Not only the same track, but the same line. The SF made a number of spirited attempts to get up the hill but failed each time. The SG made 2 attempts and easily made it up both times, when the track was in worse condition than when the SF tried.

photobucket dont work for me. but i found all 5 of your videos and well they pretty cool, just if you watch them on pc its bad ratio to watch on monitor , why record with vertical phone ? but locker works great as can be seen in those short videos.

Yh saw video from link and then found other videos from that series, like 5 in total if im not mistaking.all made with phone horizontal position.
Hmm wait , i dont see other forester in pics or video as you said sf and sg. Where that other forester? But no wonder sf cant go very far without any mods as its have just old school active awd. One wheel in air so just that will spin and you stuck. As i see on this track you cant a lot momentum you need to take it pretty slow to not damage anything.
