torsen -- For In-depth Technical Discussions


About torsen
English (USA)

Welcome to the information page for the audifans' "torsen" list! This list was established in response to a long lasting debate on the performance characteristics of torsen differentials, and as such retains some stigma. For some reason there are folks who believe that even looking here is a bad thing, so it was ironic that the *torsen* list was one of the few audifans lists that remained functional when the server crashed.

It would be great if this list were used to help coordinate group projects ... DIY intercoolers, DIY traction control, etc. There are fewer posting restrictions here than on the main lists, but we still prefer that personal attacks be handled off the list.

To minimize spam the list is configured such that only people who are on the membership list can post without moderation. If you would like to be able to post but do not want to receive posts you may set this up by turning on the "No Mail" option in the settings area.

The listmeister has set the maximum size of posts at 25K, and attachments are not allowed. If possible please submit posts in text only mode. Thank you for your consideration.
