Your right, there is a demand for these systems, because they provide traction where a FWD or RWD can't. But it DOES NOT help with braking or stopping distances AT ALL.
Thanks slammed (and others).

For M3 Vert, think about what actually happens when you are braking - no accelerative force being applied so no advantage when 2 wheels are being driven over 4. As for "who told you that?" Nobody, just common sense.
