I have a friend of mine who want to know exactly how the trax-lock works. Is it a limited-slip, if so what type of limited slip?

Trax-lock is just a fancy word for hondas shift on the fly four wheel drive. How many types of limited-slip is there?

I'm not sure, he explained 2 or 3 different ways that they can lock in.

"Torque-sensing", it means you have a three wheel drive unless you install a locker.
Gotcha! I thought it was that way. Trying to explain it to a buddy of mine.

Yes, it is supost to send the power to the tire with the most traction, but I find mine still spinning the tire with the least amount of traction. I think the system is a little better then the old front diffs, but still needs some kind of "true locker" setup from the factory.

seems like a little tap on the front brakes locks the wheels to get true 4 wheel drive. Not a hard core rider but this works fine for muddy hills, etc.
Yep, tapping the front brakes will cause the tire that is not spinning to begin to spin again. This is the same case with trucks by pulling the emergency brake quickly and letting it go to cause a rear tire to start grabbing again: if you don't have a locker in the rear that is.

Someone told me the new front differential in the new 500 Foreman pushes power from the wheel that slips to the wheel with grip.
