Nope. Every wheel end gets an equal amount of torque all the time. As I said earlier, you can only throw down as much torque as it takes to slip a wheel.

Say it takes 750 lb-ft at each wheel to move the truck. Now one wheel is on ice and it only takes 250 lb-ft to spin the wheel on ice. The 3 remaining wheels still see 250 lb-ft of torque. But since it takes 750 lb-ft to move the truck, the truck just sits there with a spinning wheel.
