Hmmm my kodiak does that with the optional lockers.

Unfortunately I have proven this not to be true, at least not without constant stopping and chainsaw use to make new trails

I never did like the design of this, electric hubs on the old ones, built into the front diff on newer models. They use a one way roller clutch so engine braking is non existent on the front wheels. Some have ADC, my 2010 850 did but worked half the time, the other half I was sliding down the steep trails because the engine braking was awesome but only working on the back tires ! I'll take the locking diffs on my Grizz and Kawi Teryx any day. The Polaris does have the best power steering though
