IMO, It will totally suck arse. The Torsen diffs work by putting the power to where the torque is coming from instead of the way a standard diff works. If you have it on all three diffs, I would bet that your car will run much slower, especially if you run on a bumpy and rough surface. If you really want to use a TorSen diff, then I would try putting it in one diff only-either the front or center, but not the rear. I would probably put it in the front only, if I were to use one, to allow there to be some diff action between the front and rear axles. Besides, TorSens are like $100 each and will cost a lot of money for not that much gain, if any.

I wish everyone who raced against me ran torsens! LOL

Bad idea if you want to win the racePink/killer...
