Point is that this has nothing to do with torsen. It has to do with the 
basic handling balance of the chassis, when drifting clutch engaged 
through corners. This balance is which torsen then destroys if you apply 
or not power, let's not argue that now ;-))

But please do scan them if you have time. The model is the MTM S2 RSR, the 
red one.

If the article you refer to is about the MTM Revo S2, there were also
articles about it in the UK's Cars and Car Conversions as well as European
Car (or was it still VW/Porsche then?).  Either way, I've got both of them
and I wouldn't mind scanning them and posting them somewhere if anybody
wants a copy...

As for Torsens, I've learned to side-step any discussions involving them.
The battle lines were drawn ages ago, there's very little chance of
persuading anybody to change their opinions now and for most people, the
issue has little relevance since the only feasible option is to either 
it up or backdate to an older transaxle, where possible.
