Rally Driver - road Audi S3-8P
Left Foot braking mod
As you will know I love to drive hard, like most of you out there...
The S3 handles very well, especially if tweaked and Haldex GenII'd, BUT - you can not take full advantage of the chassis because the darned machine will not let you drag the brakes while on partial throttle!
This results in not beeing able to stabilize the car on medium and long bends, where you can keep the front side in and, if you wish, induce oversteer with left-foot-braking.
My mechanics at Audi have been fiddling around with the car, trying all in their power, but have not found a solution to excluding this 'Safety' feature without getting the red dash light for brakes coming up.
The idea is that there is a software way to enable/disable this function (for example, when I was driving the Abarth Grande Punto in the italian rally championship, we had -and resolved- the same probem via software).
Maybe some of you out there has already explored and resolved the issue?
