Re: Audi Kool-Aid, Pt. II (long)

Josh Pinkert decided to speak these words:

i was under the impression tha the torsen not only reacted 
instantaneously due to its purely mechanical nature, but that it was a 
smoother and more linear power transfer as well.  I thought that the 
viscous systems were prone to a lag and then an exponential power 
transfer...is this correct or is Josh Correct.

Also, i thought that the new S4 had some clutch pack kind of thing, 
similar to the 964 system, which i think was designed by audi, and then 
picked up by Porsche...

Please help me get my facts straight...later all
