    Now my question will be to anyone that does drag the S3, have you tried it with the Haldex fuse pulled & drag tyres up front ??
    In my experience, proper drag slicks can reduce times by a second sometimes...
    Does the Haldex hamper performace by bogging the car down at all ?

    Dont disconnect the haldex, watching cars run at the spring gti festival it was obvious that the haldex works very well at launching, lots of fwd cars struggling to put power down off the line where as all the 4 wheel drive vag cars just gripped and gun'd it, they didnt always win but there starts were always good. How old is the skyline, If its an old rwd single turbo gts I wouldnt imagine its that quick, if it was a gtr then it would be a different case but my mate had a gts which i think was tuned and my standard 210 S3 was quicker, but then i guess it depends whats been done to it aswell.
