    General T4 Chat
    Hi guys. I'm new to the forum. I að m wondering you guys know this. I recently got stuck in snow and noticed that the syncro was only engaging when the car was going forward. I've asked around and I'm getting mixed answers, no syncro in rev or that it's broken. Anyone here know?
