ahh, the professor seems to disagree with you jeff  ;-)

the point of the whole exercise, once again, was to demonstrate that the
(claimed) u-o-u-o-u behaviour of the centre diff in the torsen does not
happen in the ur-q.  no bite, no drama.  clearly some people have a
problem with this.

once again, this was done on a large flat farmers field.  the intention
of the exercise was to explore the vehicles handling.  once again, it
was *not* part of any competition, or any of the events that were run on
