Just for anyone that doesn't realise the way video works due to stroboscopic effect.

You can't really get much accurate video info to analyse on anything spinning or turning at high rpm. The phone takes a series of "stills" at about 30 frames per second to give you a video of the moving object. So in this case, if the tyre valve was in the vertical for shot one, it could be in exactly the same position 1/30th sec later for shot two, in this case the vid would show a stationary wheel which is obviously not an accurate indication of what is actually happening. So many other possibilities mean that In this case you can't really tell what the "smart" 4 wheel drive is doing.

Great explanation here.

Just trying to help and not teach anyone how to suck eggs!!
