Excellent work mate! You obviously KNOW quattro! If any additional info is desired about the Torsen differential, go to http://www.torsen.com/files/Traction...ol_Article.pdf for an ASME white paper on traction control. In it you will find that there are many additional bebnefits to the system used by Audi Vs BMW such as not being influenced by ambient temperature or wear.

Mapezzul, I think what oneluckypuppy might have been getting at was the front weight bias, which is true. Everyone has a preference, and I enjoy driving rwd on dry roads as much as awd. It takes time and practice to learn how to get the most from awd, it's not as easy as rwd (read "boring" from obLu). It's a matter of personal preference, and if you can't decide you can always own one of each, as I do.

Audi's quattro racing record speaks for itself.
