Doesn't address relative slip angles.  Neither does your reference to Smith.
Forget COF, talk cf.  Forget slip angle rear, talk relative slip angle.  Look
again at the post from Jeff in his discussions with Stan the Torsen man.  

Slip angle and relative slip angles are variables that affect torsen switch
behavior, it's in the paper, and SC confirmed it.  You are right, "it doesn't
care" cuz they are constants to the torsen.  'Cept in reality they are
variables.  Darn turns.

I know what you are saying, it's clear.
