As far as I can tell (by examining as many cars as possible) it's standard on
all TORSEN ur-quattros.
I agree with your interpretation of the microfiche - as I posted here earlier,
there are none of the cones/discs that one normally associates with 'limited
slip' implementations - the major feature is the sprung pin that seems to be a
centrifugally-operated detent. Odd. Research continuing.
