    The rear wheels are not slow to come into play, they receive torque almost instantaneously if a front overtakes them. They just don't get enough torque to spin them (good thing) and if the VSA is on (default) it will keep varying the torque to attempt to get better traction for the situation. Turning the VSA off will allow the system to maintain a more consistent torque to the rear diff, but it is still a much smaller percentage than to the front. It is not safe to turn VSA off when the car is under way, but turning it off just before it gets stuck may help.

    That's sick!! Hard to believe where a car can go. It looks like the iX has a hooka on the air breather. The driver did not want to let the depth of the water stall him, like he knows that not much else will!!!
