i'm sure also that the introduction of a computer to control the behaviour

for the archives, and to clarify your confusion, the vc connected to both
sides of a centre differential doesn't transmit torque until slip (inter
axle in this case) occurs. of course it's slipping when one driveshaft
spins faster than the other. and when slip occurs, torque is transmitted.

pokes from you are also the usual scott. this from the guy who has insisted
to the list that a fixed diff can't possibly allow more than 50% of torque
to each axle (wanna delete those posts?). and continued on the same theme
with the haldex. retraction from you scott? silence is the usual modus
