    I will not try this with a 4th Generation. Honda is advertising rear AWD torque increase of 57% compared to 4th Generation CR-V AWD torque. Probably rear torque capability of 5th Generation is 63% in total. The questions is how long can it sustain this peak torque without overheating.

    The compact and efficient Real Time AWD provides a high degree of 4-wheel-drive sophistication in rain, snow, dirt roads and dry pavement. (I think this is manually selected).

    My calculation for 63% rear torque, was based on 40% 4th generation torque. and an increase in 57% rear torque for 5th generation. It seems that there is a revised differential motor pump which produces more pressure.
    2017 Part no:41013-5TG-305
    2016 part no.48900-R7L-043
    Honda background info:
    For 2017, the maximum hydraulic pressure has been increased, resulting in a 57 percent increase in the available torque transfer to the rear axle.

    The 2017 CR-V is offered with the updated Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. Software and hardware upgrades result in an increase in engine torque (up to a total of 40-percent) that can be sent to the rear wheels, based on the driving conditions. The result is improved performance in low traction conditions when AWD comes into play.

    Such a complicated solution to an old problem. Just add more suspension travel and keep all 4 wheels on the floor. :Laughing::Wink::Devil: IMG_20170121_135203. IMG_20170121_135130.

    57 % increase in hydraulic pressure due to a revised rear differential pump is a well worth upgrade irrespective of the ground clearance.

    Planning to add another 2cm rear strut spacer to make the wheel arches look the same.

    The CR-V in the video only appeared to have a driver on board. I wonder how it would have coped with if fully loaded, probably burned something out.
