I have previously stated the RC rear diff has a different ratio.
I was wrong. It is the same as the regular 185 ratio.
I just checked my 92. It came with a TORSEN rear diff. Codes are below.
I also had a 93 that did NOT come with TORSEN rear. Luckily I am moving my storage this week, so if someone would be so good as to bump this thread to remind me, I can check the door code on it [I still have the dr door].
Also, I have a wrecked 91. I don't know which is in it at the moment, but I can at least check the door sticker, assuming it's intact.

I can't say I've ever heard of anyone having any proof of a factory-installed LSD in any non-RC/CS/GrpA 185. They may have considered it and that's why it pops up here and there and all these rumours exist, but I'd say that's about as far as it went.
