Shouldn't the Torsen center diff lock when the broken axle/CV spins, just as
when you get wheel slip?
Also, I would think you would get a lot of noise from the star shaped inner
race of the CV spinning inside the outer race.

I've moved the car tonight by cable tow.   :-)
Moving at 25 MPH I can hear a flutter like a popped CV joint.
UNLIKE the 4000Q where I just locked the difs to keep on going (to a repair
pressing the rear dif button in a 200 does nothing.  :-(

CV / Half shaft responses (there were a lot of them) win the: when I see ya'
all again I owe you a lager...............

Strange it let go at a feathered throttle (EASY cruise) at 30 MPH in a
straight line.
