Re: the facts on the torsen in rallying

once again scott conveniently forgets to mention a few pertinent facts when
discussing audi, torsen and rallying.  (reference his statement yesterday that
audi chose not to rally the torsen).

such as that audi withdrew from comeptitive rallying at the end of 1985,
*before* the torsen was available.

important data point?  you decide.
