Flat-towing Subaru Outback AT...
I am about to apply my brainpower to the TOAD situation now. I want to flat tow a 2008 Subaru Outback with an automatic transmission. Yes, I know people in HELL want Slurpees too... let's focus on the problem at hand, we can help them later.
I want that Subaru as a TOAD, it's the perfect size/weight. I know the whole issue has to be about lubrication... correct? Why can't I use a fluid pump to circulate the transmission fluid while towing? I know a company used to make kits, but it seems they have stopped.
So what's the verdict? It is a 12-year old vehicle, so forget the warranty. I just want to know if the vehicle will survive towing if the tranny fluid is circulated.
Thanks fellow TOADsters...
