    why is your ABS light off, have you turned your EPS off? Do you mean it pulls better from a standing start or from a rolling start?

    if ur pressing the esp button (brings the triangle up on the clocks) this is turning the traction control off, and not limiting power when it detects wheel slip,

    Faulty Haldex controller? If it's broke, the ABS comes on, and you have no 4wd, which = car goes faster, as less transmission losses...

    Well yes because there'll be no drive to the rear. Surprised you haven't already felt the fronts slipping if this is the case though.
