Claims again

Ah yes, Stilian again.  You haven't read the archives have you?  This is
rehash, and the post Greg put up is incorrect.  Please, if you want to make a
claim, have some knowlege of it.  The documented use of Torsens in racing is
foggy at best.  The claim is Torsens in racing.  Documentation, observations
by Phil, others, and audis own racing specs, don't confirm that.  This isn't
new.  There is reference to Torsens amongst many diffs listed by audi (and if
you read those references, you can't make the jump that torsens were used in
racing, save the S1 for a short time= my claim, unsuccessfully).  Doesn't for
a minute mean they actually used them.  Be careful with the claims they did.
The ONLY indication to date is the reference I quoted on the S1 in a 2-26-98
post.  Pretty vague too.  Stilian, plenty of folks are trying hard to prove it
was used.  Not quite accepted as fact yet.  Sorry.   Pick a car pick a race.
None posted yet.

Stilian, howitzer fired, btft.  Now you owe the list a good meaningful,
thoughtful or helpful post.  Happy to be the front for the nasty offense.
Doesn't change the physics of a torsen in a turn.  Doesn't change the exact
lack of evidence to support audi Torsens in racing.  Once we do this, we can
go to what the BR is.  We need to support the claim of the device first.
Premature fire again?  

A concerted effort to read Jeff's simple explanation of the phenomenon would
be considerate, given your 2.5 months of passive "involvement".  Prove what?
That a "dumb gear jamming frictional device" is exactly what the author and
designer describes it to be?  Ok, I'm with you on where you're coming from.

You owe the list a meaningful post now.
