I have wondered for a few days whether the purpose of this discussion was to
generate an authoritative post from one of us to the effect that this is a
known problem with the type 44/TORSEN.
Such a post could then be shown to a spouse/insurance company to account for
damage caused in some other way ...
Ain't gonna happen. Roger Galvin and I had a long discussion overnight - long
term listers may remember Roger and I running some demos back in the days of
the great "5k vs. ur-quattro" debate. Those demos were at night and on wet
roads - Roger was very well aware of the limits of his car and how to exceed
them. We did, a number of times. He, also, has never met this purported
condition. We can't recreate it (unfortunately) because although Roger has two
ur-quattros, a Coupe quattro and a V8Q - he no longer has a type 44.
