Re: Torsen Test
Michael. I would definitely vote for your diff lock mechanism being on
the blitz. If your rear diff had actually been locked on the 90 with the
center torsen, your one rear wheel would have acted very similarly to the
same setup on the 5k. Is the rear diff locked pneumatically like on the
older cars? This lack of power to the one rear wheel with traction is
NOT a fault of the specific design of the 90 Quattro system. Something
isn't working as designed. Guaranteed. Otherwise, quattro would only be
hype - and we all know better!
