Re: Torque Sensing Differentials - math corrections, conclusions stay

mmmm, have you considered the logic, or are you just making an "out of hand"
dismissal of the torsen case (pot and kettle).  if you have considered the
logic, then i'd like to hear it...

btw, phil is speaking on behalf of a large number of (20-30?) mb (torsen)
ur-quattro owners.  thats a much greater sample size than the "bite" brigade
(none of whom drive a torsen ur-quattro), and who compare the actions of their
non-torsen ur-qauttro's to their torsen-equipped 200's and 5k's (thats apples
and oranges where i come from)...
