I'm still getting used the handling in my S3 but I'm not really sure how to drive it.
I'm interested to know what happens under fast conering / drift conditions so last night when the road was quiet I took her round some wet islands.
Unless I'm doing something wrong the car seemed to handle quite like a FWD. I know its haldex and not permanent AWD but it wasn't quite what I was expecting.
As I was going round with power off I was very impressed with how the car turned in and it felt extremely grippy but as I added power the nose would pull out and the car would start to understeer instantly, which was corrected by coming off the power. I tried to compensate by turning in more as I added power but this didn't seem to work. I was hoping that the haldex would see the angle of the front wheels and put more power to the rear to bring it round.
Do you have to be more aggressive or is this just normal for a stock S3? I hear that better suspension is great but I really like the feel of the ride and I worried about ruining it.
Really I need somewhere big open and safe (off the road) to have a play because this isn't really appropriate on road but I know you guys understand
