Re: Torsen or not Torsen? That is my question..

>Interesting that they use the torsen diff in the rear, instead of the center
as Audi does.

I think the quattro system is the only application of a Torsen as a *center*
diff.  Many manufacturers use them in place of standard limited-slip rear
diffs.  The Hummer uses Torsen front and rear with standard manually locking

BTW Reiner, the RAV4 (ugly piece of sh*t,IMO) uses a viscous center diff.
 Also, I don't think it has a low range which is a must for real off-roading.
