Dear customers! We developped, created and are now selling the Powertrack Insert for more than a year now with only good comments so far! Thank you for your interest and support!
The Powertrack Insert is a new product in the Quattro / 4motions and other brand names of the Haldex LSC AWD first / second generation system world. Powertrack Insert delivers the most rear traction possible of ALL the products available on the market at a fraction of the cost.

How it works: Powertrack Insert changes the tune of the hydraulic system to increase the power delivered to the Haldex clutch instantly. The result is an instant response of the rear traction with a power distribution of 50/50. With Powertrack Insert you get the fastest reaction and strongest rear traction available. Improvements are especially great for modified high powered cars but also for stock cars. Fastest delivery high pressure also reduces clutch wear by limiting clutch slip and low intermediate pressure situation.

While drastically improving snow traction, loose surface traction and launch from stop, it remains smooth enough to be used on a daily drive vehicle and will go unnoticeable on most of the low speed situation like parking or tight turn. Electronic features of your car like: ESP/Traction control and ABS will work as long you don’t disengage it. The Powertrack Insert is also completely reversible, just reinstall your original insert and you are back to stock.

Powertrack Insert installs in about one hour without the need to lower the Haldex unit and you don’t have to refill or change Haldex fluid. (While being a good idea if your car is due for maintenance)

Powertrack Insert is not a locker for your differential, it's a traction ennancer. The action of the device is maximized by the front wheel splippage but the reaction is instant and maximum!

* Powertrack Insert can be installed on any OEM controller. Two kind of insert models exist and both are available. Be sure to use the appropriate one. Visit our Youtube channel, a “How to identify the right insert for your car/controller model” video is there to help you. This listing is for circlip model. 17 mm hex head is also available. Circlip models are mostly used on 2002 and later models years.

* Powertrack Insert can be also used on an aftermarket controller: If you already have an aftermarket controller, you can still use our product as long you have the appropriate insert type. Therefore you won’t benefit from the variable delivered rear torque provided by your aftermarket controller anymore as it will work exactly like an OEM unit upgraded with the Powertrack Insert.

*Powertrack Insert will make a rear axle swap working without the need of electronics. Powertrack Insert can make a rear Haldex LSC work as a “mechanical stand alone” on a car that wasn’t designed to work with the rear Haldex. Contact us if you are doing that kind of project and we will tell you how to easily wire your electronics and enable to select a front/rear 50/50 traction or FWD traction just by the flick of an ON/OFF switch.

We invite you to visit our facebook page and to like it! Lots of questions have been answered there. Also a couple of link to independent customers testimonies.

Is that not going to overheat it - they are fragile at the best of times??

The Haldex system is far from fragile. As long as the breather pipes are clear, correct level of haldex oil i'e not bone dry and serviced then it's should be fine.

By the way you can get the inserts cheaper on eBay as I posted a link in another thread on here.
I have one of those but still didn't fit it yet. I am concerned about the cornering abilities with 50/50
i was thinking of getting one but with it being a daily driver i dont think it would cope too well and kill it eventually
