i have a '11 outback 2.5i w/ CVT. can i just pull a fuse so i can run FWD rallycross in the mornings and then put it back in so i can run AWD in the afternoons. lots of people with the old school subies do that as they can just push a button for AWD.


tired of a sore elbow from the hard plastic armrest? get a cover here

Man I miss that part in my old legacy wagon. No need for awd during the summer so just drop the fuse in and FWD for a few months into early winter. Tis sad subaru didn't keep it up.

2005 Outback XT 5EAT......93 octane is yummy!!
