Re: Torsen thread future
>Hey, most debates have two sides. Don't want to hear the other side?
>Don't start the debate.
Personally, I rather like debates ... earn most of my living that way, in
fact. Of course, it has cost me a few girlfriends over the years...
>If you do not like the torsen system, don't buy a torsen car. How
>difficult is that?
Well, had I known about this before I bought mine, I might well have
considered it ... that said, I'm puzzled why everything thinks the goal of
this thread is to come up with winners and losers? I think the Torsen diff
is great for what it is and my goal in exploring its hows and whys is to
figure out whether it can be made to work better still for my purposes. In
case this hasn't been made clear in the past, let me state it again so
there's no misunderstanding: I THINK THE TORSEN CENTER DIFF WORKS GREAT FOR
NORMAL STREET USE; IT'S ONLY WHEN IT GETS "FOOLED" OR "MISBEHAVES" THAT I
HAVE PROBLEMS WITH IT. Some people are happy with stock boost; other people
are happy with OEM struts, shocks, springs and wheels ... I'm not one of
those people. I want to make my cars serve my particular needs as well as I
possibly can within the limits of my budget. I have no hidden agendas, no
ulterior motives; I'm only looking for knowledge...
>As for only Audi using torsen, I don't know why. Is it proprietary?
>Is it patented? I don't know.
So far as I know, Gleason will happily sell them to anyone who wants them
... I can only assume that, to date, only Audi fits that bill.
>Keep the subject going boys! Some torsen cars are still too darn
Damn ... you figured out our ulterior motive after all! I'd like my S6 in
black, thank you... ;^)
