sure but i duno where those sensors could be , like how to tell them , find them ? if you could find places where they should be then i could check. i cant find those info in net thou.
i remember one times i got low coolant in engine and was having longer trip on high speeds so my engine getting hotter and VDC just turned off when i was going high speed. after i cooled down car it was on again. so i mean its really sensitive to many things there.

Well its no prob really but for testing that you need outback that drives and have everything working ok . so if you know where those sensors are just tell me and i would check them.

I'm also talking on another forum and got an answer...VDC can't work without the sensors, too bad.

But...we're trying to find another way to make it work, i'll keep you updated.

this guy proved that subaru + long travel suspension makes subaru just more capable off road more comfy there too . just its cost some more and need some stuff redone there , changed , modified
he just having simple old school subaru active AWD and nothing more there. wel land some more power with H6 engine in old 1st gen outback. i wish it could be affordable as well.

small test of too steep tree stump with VDC on . 1st gear. and then why Hi Lift jack could be used even on subarus. it was fast recovery couple minutes , all front car was in air , put some tress under wheels , lower it down and drove away.

What factors make off road ability? Depends on what type of off roading. I can only comment on dirt, mud and rock. I have tried road tyres and all terrain tyres, standard height and a mild lift, open, viscous, torsen, plated and locked diffs. All on an SG forester. The single biggest factor in off road ability, more than all the others combined, is having locking diffs. If you can lock your rear and centre diffs, in most scenarios you will go further than with other modifications.

I wonder if the key factor for Subaru success isnt low center of gravity vs supposed light weight.

More recent Subarus are not really light. More importantly, what matters is pressure per sq cm and since Subaru have small tires I am not sure they put less weight on the ground per sq cm at all.

In fact, I guess that my 4R has lower pressure per sq cm than my OB had.

There is literally twice as much tire on the ground vs 30% higher vehicle weight.

I do not know, but I think that the Subaru "magic" has a lot to do with really low center of gravity.
