GL Traction Management Technical Information

Hey guys. I have a couple of questions if anyone has knowledge of these subjects concerning the GL. Particularly the GL with the off road group option. I am an off road driving instructor with the Land Rover Experience Driving School and I get alot of questions concerning how other vehicle traction management systems operate. Just to get one thing out of the way.....yes....we are a Land Rover School.....yes....we do use Land Rovers....but that being said, we are not Land Rover salesmen. Our goal is to teach off road driving skills and techniques no matter what vehicle the student may have. Back to the point at hand, I do get various questions on how vehicles other than Land Rovers operate so I try to keep abreast on other vehicles. I have already put a post on the G forum and I received some very good information on how that vehicle uses it's different systems. I know the GL has a traction control system, two speed transfer case, and a center and rear locking differential with the off road package. The question or questions that I have is how do these systems work in concert with each other? Are the locking differentials manual locking or do they operate automatically as needed? Will traction control work if the diffs are locked or is that system cut off when any of the diffs are locked? I would really appreciate any information on how these systems work on this vehicle. Any responses would be great appreciated.

Thanks,
Darren
