# RE: A new look at t*rsens

```once again, a very good summmary of the locker in operation scott.  your
misunderstanding about what "bias ratio" means accepted.

are you going somewhere with this?  i'm shaking my head in bemusement
here....

let me see, to take your paragraph, change a few words and we have the
following:

"To make this easy for you and others to understand [thanks], a simple
locker summary:
A locker allocates torque in *any* turn under acceleration at some Bias
Ratio [sic]
other than 50f/50r.  It can *ONLY* do this based on two inputs to the
device, these *can* be, but are not *necessarily*, independent events.  1)
traction at a given wheel.  A wheel spins up (or is about to), so does it's
respective axle, torque is allocated to the other axle.  2) Slip angle
differences across the center axle.  At a given radius, given dry pavement
(no traction problems for any wheel) with a given amount of accleration, (on
a given wheelbase, on a given cf, on a given fully laden q), the exact Bias
Ratio [sic]
rear can be measured.  Any of those givens change, so does the measured BR
[sic]."
