Open CD systems don't necessarily have to be 50/50. Changing the rear differential ratio will change the torque split between front and rear (while all the wheels have traction). Changing the rear ratio on the 5MT will cause problems because the plates in the VC would move much faster relative to each other and possibly overheat.
All true. I was thinking more along the lines of both outputs *at* an open diff, whether front to rear or side to side.
