No torsen for me thanks.

The torsen is a good idea if your drag racing a car and are battling
with traction problems.  I personally do not like torsens, but they are
good for some things.  I was driving a 95 sport 90 quattro in snow.  I
gave the car a little gas around a corner (like my 4kq likes) and scared
the $&!~ out of me, instead of a little oversteer or a little understeer
all 4 wheels lost traction (because of the gas) and thankfully no cars
were parked in the road.  No thanks, no torsen for me.  I'd rather pull
the knob if I get stuck.  By the way I havent gotten stuck yet, just
pulled it for 4wd doughnuts in the snow.  I like being able to control
my oversteer as anyone would.  I cant see how anyone would like them if
you cant control the car.  I havent driven my moms 98 A4 quattro in the
snow yet, but if it doesnt have a torsen and the EDL doesnt overwork
like the same as the torsen I think it will be fun.  Does anyone know
why almost all new cars have almost no road feedback?  I still love my
84 4kq.
