Others will comment on the other parts - but the Touring Cars had
no Torsens - in fact, as far as I can tell, they had no centre
differentials at all.  I've seen the drivetrain stripped on the bench
at Audi Sport, and I've spent three days looking after Biela's 1996
practice car for Audi - an hour of which was spent underneath looking
