I was away for a bit and am reading through all the posts from the past
weekend.  One thing confuses me here...

It's not clear what a torsen senses.  Some claim that it senses traction,
as above.  While others claim it senses differences in rotational speeds.
And as it's been pointed out, a difference in rotational speed is not
necessarily a difference in traction.  So which is it??
