RE: R8c

If you drove a Citroen or a Fiat, your TORSEN would have frozen, and you'd be
tickled by it! Thanks for the clue-in.

The factory offers a Majordomo list for their Le Mans entry, plus the web site
is pretty cool, once you find the bit in a language you understand.

I said: 

"But there are various Americans, such as I, who can speak and
read Cherman"

and Pat said:

"The new Audi R8 is neat, but not everyone can read German."

Of course a lister who speaks Italian or French can tell me
that the torsen in my transmission has fused, smile at me, and
leave me thinking that I have just received the highest compliment.

That's why I drive an Audi, and not a citroen or fiat...
