Re: [DML] Broken torsion bar

Actually there is about 45 degrees of twist in the bar with the door 
wide open. Still a pretty good pent up hunk of energy. 

Generally though a bar will fail with the door shut since it's more 
twisted at that point. I have seen a bar fail with the door 1/2 open, 
but it was a welded-up bar.
