Subaru AWD is invisible to the operator. You'll run straight, true and fast on any surface. We consistantly drive 60-65 mph on snow roads all winter in Montana We DO have to mind the Ford Exploders, we have to slow down for tham ... to avoid the wreckers pulling them out of the borrow ditches.

In normal driving, you never notice the clutch pack doing its thing. The car just goes, very smooth and confident handling.
In more spirited driving ("Closed course. Professional driver. Do not attempt."), you can feel the balance change as the clutch pack changes torque distribution. The transitions are smooth and predictable. There's no "spin, grab, spin, grab" like you mentioned.
