      Time to get over yourself, Nebby, because crap like this is only pandering to a huge captive audience that readily accepts it. And that's just an easy, lazy thing to do.

      Anyone who "ignores" my...

      Honestly, the out of context generalizations and shoot-the-messenger BS on the contents of my posts has got to stop. Especially as everything both positive, negative, factual and in-between I've...

      Personal context is the key, here.

      Indeed, with ESC off "I" am able to maintain a controlled "drift" a Golf R. But here's two things in the realm of context as regards what's fun and what's not...

      Wrong on two counts:

      1. FMVSS 126 includes a "do not harm" requirement for aftermarket suppliers: Link .

      2. At the start of the 2010 racing season, APR discovered that the astronomically high...

      Original post deleted and edited due to a major misread. Sorry.

      I respectfully disagree. Mad Understeer?...

      I respectfully disagree.

      Mad Understeer? Seriously? With countless hours/km/mi at anywhere between 4/10ths to 10/10ths pace on both Euro and US spec Golf R on public roads and closed course...

      DRSCCA Memorial Day Autocross

      Here's a quick shot of my 2012 Golf at the recent DRSCCA autocross. First serious time out for me after a year off from autocrossing (to concentrate on the race car program), and my first event on...

      This has been great fun, ...like watching monkeys (read: closet engineers) with a football.

      Ideas? Hardly. I know exactly what's what and what's needed :cool:

      Again, context is key.

      For me, defense of the perceived “need” for a BBK on an R32 or any performance VW for HPDE is fascinating in that validates three things: First, most so-called enthusiasts still place excessive...

      The habit you appear to have, and what you are doing without (apparently) knowing about it, is initiating enough yaw acceleration by introducing steering during the last part of braking, and this is...

      No.

      And I say this because as an engineer and old fart racer I never found the US version to lack steering response in fast transients and not once during the full range of 5/10ths to 10/10ths...
