Post ADV/DISADV of center diff, Viscous or Electronically controlled?

Just wondering what characteristics of each and preferable and under what circumstances.

The Viscous couple seems like it would react more slowly to power transfer, altho able to transfer more than 50% power.
While I've read that the Elect Diff is less capable of >50% power transfer to the rear.

How about under braking conditions, do the rear wheels disengage? What happens in the transfer case?

All these functions are contolled by the TCM.Whatever the programmer decides to do with a given set of sensor readings the electronic clutch pack will perform.
