everyone seems to think this is what the DCCD does. this is incorrect.

the DCCD determines the amount of lock in the differential between the front and rear wheels. when the DCCD is in full lock the front and rear wheels must all spin at the same speed. when the DCCD is fully unlocked all the wheels can spin at different speeds.

just thought id clear that up. but that is still awesome none the less.
