      MK6 is plenty fun without VAQ currently, even in my non-stability-defeatable 2011 guise. The XDS in MK6 guise I am not sure does the brake-torque vectoring thing that MK7 promises with the XDS+, but...

      FYI for you non-Chinese speaker, "qi" with the current pin-yin method of pronunciation is pronounced "chi". It actually is Hong-chi, which means Red Flag(红旗).

      If on pure ice XDS or EDL will not function simply since if it sees no speed differential, there is no "locking". Whatever helps, is traction control and appropriate tires.

      Sports Package on the Honda I think makes them a decent driver for the size they are. If you don't mind the size I think they are pretty good cars. Even the 4 banger can be fun just not as fast. In...

      I enjoyed the whole post office scene with Malvo, and the pharmacy exchange with Lester. And the 2 guys from Fargo is just great. Also I like the "foyer" joke in the police briefing.

      Makes sense, Vettel was the driver who got the most out of the blown diffuser era in the most blown diffuser optimized car, losing it has to be pretty tough.

      Was it me or does the RBR has got a...

      I've never gotten stuck in my car, but I really don't enjoy driving this car in winter, it has less to do with XDS/EDL not working and more to do with the fact that the car just cuts power on you. It...
