Where is the documentation of Torsen use?  Do we really know that, or are you
taking the homog to mean that torsens were used.  Not a jump I would make.
Audi would never cheat, no way, never.  Even if the drivers wanted nothing to
do with the Torsen.  Hey, rules is rules.

I'm smiling Dave, you are exactly right in your "thinking".  'Cept  ALL street
sport quattros produced under homog had NO torsens (all lockers f&r).  So audi
would technically be cheating if they USED torsens.  You have this backwards

And we know that no one would think of cheating in any race environment.
