I think they should have stated, In sport mode the rear axle will go to 60% clutch engagement limiting slip in the drivetrain giving a feel the rear wheels are helping drive the vehicle. Because the front are still recieving 100% from the transmission output, not 40%. This stuff isn't rocket surgury.
Having a hard time following what you are saying...but the only time you are at 100% Fwd is in auto with the rear disconnected.
