    Just wondering, what types of differentials are in quattros?

    Front - ??
    Centre - mechanical limited slip diff??
    Rear - ??

    I assume the centre diff is limited slip of some form or other - but what about the other two - are they mechanical LSDs as well, or do they use the brakes to perform 'traction control' on each axle?

    Vastly different depening of Haldex (transverse engines) and Torsen (longitudinal). I don't have a neat brief summary but if you do a Google on Haldex and Torsen there's loads of info.
