50/50 front and rear isn't always the right ratio depending on the conditions so I'm not sure what you mean. It might make a good starting point if you are dealing with a reactive system though b/c it's in the middle of the range that you have to work over.

If I knew how that worked I would have invented it before Subaru did If I were to guess however they could sense wheel speeds and/or use sensors (gyros, accelerometers, etc.) to see the loss of traction coming and adjust accordingly. It's not that far fetched.
