Both the one's I drove were at the low end of proper specs (.5 neg), where
they got the best handling...  Torsen gives undesteer all the time, and gets
progressively worse as you add the gas....   If it locked at a setting, one
might be able to address it's shortcomings...  Great, just like abs, for the
wife (three years, she has yet to touch the AWD switch panel), but not the
best handling by far....  It gets worse as you increase the hp....  The
gen-I, OTOH gets mucho better...  BTDT
