Torque Sensing Differentials - math corrections, conclusions stay

<<Face it, guys - some or all of your assumptions are wrong......

Really.  At all speeds, in all weathers, on sudden diesel slicks, power on, 
power off, braking, sliding.  Believe me, I push the car _often_ and I have 
_never_ been caught out by it doing anything unexpected.

     Neither have I, actually.  But based on the information provided by two
reliable witnesses (Scott Justasson and Jeff Goggin) who have no vested
interest in the issue (in other words, they don't make a profit from whether
it happens or not), plus the information provided on Jeff's web site, it does
seem quite possible for just such an incident to occur.  There is the
possibility that this is like the "oil over-pressure" situation in which I
find myself.  My engine has 5 bent exhaust valves.  Has yours?  Not that
you've mentioned to the list.  Yet you have every confidence that you can tell
me what happened.  Please note that there are far fewer reported incidents of
"oil over-pressure" on this list than there have been "spider bites".  The
fact that you haven't been directly affected by either makes absolutely no
difference whatsoever as to whether either can, or does, happen.  And neither
does the rarity of the incidents lessen the fact that they have occured for
some individuals under some circumstances.
     I'm afraid your logic for dismissing this out-of-hand is not holding up,
suggest you regroup.
