      jblank - the binding is a coupling of the rear wheels in low speed turn situations, like parking lots. There are a lot of ways to deal with it or to get around it happening entirely.

      You need to search this stuff out and read up before you decide which way to go...

      I've been putting it down with the Competition controller for two months and to me its the greatest thing since Atari 2600! As far as binding, it doesn't happen very often with me. Once every two weeks or so. It's usually when I'm parallel parking into a very tight space. I haven't put it down on the track with it yet, but to date I have not had any wheel hop during hard cornering. It brings the platform to life. I recommend it to any VAG enthusiast! Also fuel mileage has not been affected................... Oh I forgot, no more jerk off (Giggdy!) the line you feel with OEM Haldex when the clutch packs engage.

      I hope this helps to clear the open questions on whats what for the Gen 1.

      Ok, Marcel says no binding,,,, but new competion owners say it still binds?

      Please clear this up for us, and lets roll out the Christmas sale early so I can put my controller on before it gets cold....

      Thanks

      Anyone ever identify what cars had that controller originally? Obviously it was manufactured for some original application.

      I thought I read somewhere that the controllers were going to get rare because they were going out of regular production from the manufacturer. If it's a software change, then there should be a way to upgrade existing stock units then- right?

      Why are you having someone else install it? It's a pretty basic install.
      I guess you are the second person in the two controller discount.
      I hope you did not pay more than $800 for the unit, since I was told HPA quoted NLS, by NLS.

      My car is there for the rear main seal leak/exhaust/front lsd....just made sense for Josh to install it since it's there

      I do not know anything about the two controller discount. Just told Josh to get it. I'll ask him tommorrow

      Let's get it strait. I just got my comp in june. IT WILL BIND!!!!!!!! PERIOD, END OF SUBJECT!! Having said that it will usually happen when you parallel park or make a 3 point turn. Also binding can be avoided also. #1 Avoid making extremely tight menuvers all together, #2 Avoid as much as possible turning the wheel all the way to wheel lock, #3 release the wheel when ever you get the first sign of binding.

      What an amazing upgrade! I kept loosing traction when in boost. Car would squat, the front would lift(I'm on air w/o e level sensors) and I'd just spin wheel. With this controller, that did not happen once this weekend at H2Oi. Amazing to feel the difference! Thanks HPA

      Sorry, but was that upgrade from OEM to Competition (Race), or Blue (Sport) to Competition (Race)?

      Well, thanks a lot, thats a very interesting post!

      Certainly the difference from Blue to Orange isnt as much as from Stock to Blue, but there is some none the less which is contrary to what has been previously understood by most of us.

      It also shows really how much of a huge difference is applied even with just the bHPP (compared to stock) which is Im sure why everyone says its such a noticeable change...
