Re: Torsen differences
arrrggggghhhh, the *part* numbers are *different*. agreed? the torsens
*look* different in the diagrams between the ur-q and the rs2. could it
possibly mean that they *are* different. just possibly? sheesh.

wooahh, you mean audi specially designed the 6-speed with too much room for the
[old] torsen? you've got to be kidding. surely. why would they *possibly*
want to do this?
you agree that the helical spring isn't in the 5-speed?
