RE: Torsen Tech

the tank slapper happens quickly. more quickly than you can react to the
change of inputs.  the guy i sold my '85 ur-q to did just this manouever
with an unlocked centre and ended up upside down in a field.  walked
away of course (thanks audi).

same old story.  know your car, know the conditions, know yourself.

'95 rs2
'90 ur-q
