Let's not for get Homog. rules, Phil.  If I was using a LSD instead of a
locker in some of my Group B or Group A Rallye efforts, I sure would want to
make sure both were available for order.  Could it be only 200 or so were
made?  Out of stock on the order ticket (or a forwarded order to Audi Sport).
Given NO Urq's came from the factory with a LSD rear, I sure would start to
wonder.  It's not the same housing as the 44 cars (for those thinking v8), but
I wonder if it might be the same as what Dave E may be driving.  

Hoever, my (94-96) RS2 Fiche shows "TorsenDifferential"  Listed as part # 01E
409 751, which is the front.  The rear shows a locker (#01H 500 040B) with all
electro-pneumatic actuation found in the later locking rears, NOT a Torsen.
Yo, Dave E, what do you have?

If it's in print from audi, it must be true?  I'm not convinced of that at
