So historically I've had a couple of powerful / nimble RWD cars and a very entertaining perminant 50:50 split 4WD Jap turbo hatch all of which i was pretty happy pushing hard once in a while (on a track naturally)
Just got a 3.2 Quattro a couple of weeks back as my first sensible car for a while and i'm trying to work out the way the Quattro works when it comes to pushing the car.... the switching between 2 & 4WD is a little confusing to say the least!
So basically is there any technique to driving these in anger? The grip seems to be there when cornering and accelerating, although the understeer is pretty self evident (as expected with the weight of the engine).
How much can the ESP be relyed on? Is it pretty good at catching you when things go pair shapped? Will it stop under/oversteer or just try and prevent you spinning?
any info / experiance welcome - just to note i'm not looking to drive like a numpty on public roads, i'm just interested in the handling characteristics of the car and quattro system
