when the sticks to the right its in all wheel drive. Drive will go to the wheel with least resistance, usually the front. What you can do is leave the stick to the right jack up one rear wheel and see if it gets drive.

As Eraser has said they have a lockable centre diff lock, so while all 4 wheels can drive with it open, if one spins the car will stop..

they run this setup instead of needing to use free wheeling hubs, or have to use 2wd on the road.

If you lock the centre diff the power will be distributed evenly to front and rear. With it unlocked it will just send power to the one with the least grip
