I'm not denying physics. Physics is a physical science - every effect must be
demonstrable by repeatable experiment, not hypothesised off a web page.
I can only speak from my own experience and say that what doesn't happen just
doesn't happen. I also suspect that any flaw as dramatic as the one you're
theorising would provoke a recall or at least some consumer awareness. I see none,
nor do I see any cautionary tales or warnings in the literature. Nor, to my
knowledge (but I can ask at the AGM) has any of the 300-odd TORSEN ur-quattro
drivers in the UK.
There are even several ur-quattro TORSEN drivers here on this list. None of us.
