Would you provide us with info that torsen was not used in the the
events that the others have posted and/or was not successful. It is very
easy to say "I do not believe it. You are wrong. The info you provide is
wrong". Prove it.

Following the same logic and attitude I can say that you "Imagined the
byte" and it does not exist and so on. You want the others to consider
what you have to say, but would not do the same for what they have to
say. Disregarding everything that contradicts your theory is not the
way to come to an agreement on the torsen subject. You also seem to
generate a lot of email that does not have any real contribution to the
discussion and generally this is considered SPAM. I have followed this
spider byte torsen tread for 2.5 months now and do not understand how we
kept it going for so long  Maybe you are right, but you can not prove it
with plethora of inconclusive evidence and round robin diatribes. 
If agreeing with your theory is what it takes I will agree just to end
this and get on with life.
