RE: Different Torsen question...
No. The Torsen needs some load to "work against", it will allow an end to
spin freely, if it presents no resistance. It's a "Torque Sensing"
differential, when there is an imbalance in the torque leaving on both
shafts, it mechanically multiplies the torque on the freer shaft by a
factor, and applies that added torque to the more loaded shaft. But
anything times "0" load is zero, so no go!

Subject: Different Torsen question...
On the 'non' torsen cars, you can pull the driveshaft, lock the diff,
and drive away on the front wheels. Can you do this on a Torsen equipped
car? I may need to send the driveshaft out for work and prefer to 'not'
have the car down the whole time...
