CK, all ill say is this:

The center diff shown is just the transaxle allowing the transmission to make a 90deg turn to connect. The clutch packs still regulate the power distribution.

Also the rears of the CVT are never 0%. It's 60:40 under normal conditions to 50:50 when fully clamped.
The CD is not a simple 90 degree gear setup. There are four concentric shafts in your diagram:

Yellow: Rear drive
Green: Front drive
Purple: Left front axle
Blue: Right front axle

Two concentric shafts (green and yellow) exit from the CD to the right.

As CVT owners have reported in this thread, when the MPT has no power, neither do the rear wheels.
