i interrupted a towie the other day trying to remove my illegally parked s2. driving away the thought occured to me that towing a quattro (w/torsen) would not be that healthy an experience for the transmission.
ie. both front wheels stationary (on the tow truck), and the rear wheels moving. the torsen locks 25:75% so therefore there would be torque transmitted to the front diff and it would have nowhere to go (front wheels firmly embedded on the tow truck).
am i missing something?
