      UPS Canada is raising rates (dues to rising fuel costs) next week on Haldex Controllers (and other products shipped on "Air" service). Get your orders in before this Friday to save on shipping costs to the US and International destinations...

      Thanks!

      Additional Haldex inventory arriving next week...thank you for your orders!

      The Gen.4s are flying off the shelves because of all the Golf Rs being delivered...if you TT guys and gals are interested, get your orders in to secure one while they are still in stock...

      I did a full writeup on my build thread here

      It is totally worth it. really changes the power down in the low revs, and the dyno graphs prove it.

      I am still waiting for the Guinne Pig to emerge. Apparently, no TT-RS owners have tried this revsion yet.

      I spent this past weekend driving the Motorsport Ranch Track in Cresson, Texas (3.1 mile CCW). This was my second track weekend in the TT-RS and the only two times I have driving on a track in my life.

      The car is great, and I don't concieve of an improvement that this controller could make.

      I did learn that: 1) disable the first tier of ESP or you may have the computer holding back on throttle input, 2) It may be nice to have the rev limiter removed or raised a few hundred RPM, 3) have enough fuel in tank before a session such that you will not drop INTO the indicated red area (~ 1/8 tank) on the fuel gauge or you will suffer from loss of prime to the fuel pump (and subsequently look like a duche bag).

      Worth it IF you track the car on regular bassis AND have an upgraded ARBs...the RACE only Haldex works better with an ARBs upgrade.

      On track it helps keep traction to all 4 wheels in to and out of bends...car will just not break traction.

      So to recap...it is a mod that is mostly effective on track; works well with upgraded ARBs; helps carry more speed in to and out of bends as you can get on power earlier than your competition; maintains traction when the OEM version pushes the noise wide.

      I have had mine for 18-mths and track the car once a month or 10 times per annum. I also have MagneRide. I would however not fit the Haldex unit again if starting over again as I can personally replicate its benefit with a suspension mod especially on MagneRide equipped car.

      is there any chance of the race only controller being able to be given multiple modes like the sport controller in future? I like the idea behind the race controllers more consistent torque apportionment but it sounds like it would be hard on tires and fuel on a daily commute basis....

      The Gen.4 controller does offer 3 modes...race, stock, and eco...

      ECO mode was specifically designed to ease the concerns you mentioned.

      With the purchase of a cable/switch or remote/receiver, you can use race mode or eco mode when you see fit...

      thanks, I must have misread somewhere that the race-only controller has the special feature of keeping the torque to the rear wheels under braking (since the stock haldex removes all torque under braking to rears) wanted to be sure that all the features of the race only controller were available in race mode of the switchable one....

      Understood, and yes, not available. Most people that buy the Competition controller are more interested in balls-out performance than fuel economy...

      The switchbale race controller offers a balance for those who want "race" performance some of the time, but also the conveneince of stock or eco mode when they are commuting in rush hour traffic, or driving their monther-in-law to the airport...

I gave it a few good 0-60 launches and it noticeably launched from the rear more and got off the line more quickly, transforming the launch of the car compared to stock launches (which had seemed to bog down at best). I'll start a proper thread and review when I get back from the mountains, but I'm already happy with it and can't wait to see how different twisty bits are with this upgrade.

      Questions about the Comp version of the controller for a US spec TT-RS...

      1. Does the comp version of the controller cause any binding in the driverrain during slow speed driving with sharp turns, for example when pulling into a parking space? Put another way, does the comp version allow some differentiation between the front and rear ends? I have plenty of experience with 'part time's 4wd systems (with all manner of diffs: open, detroit lockers, erc.) that don't function smoothly unless the tires can slip somewhat (snow, mud, rain, etc.) and don't need that with my TT-RS.

      2.Does the comp version create any 'spooky' behavoir when driven on the street? Oversteer, snap steering, problems with wet, slippery roads?

      3.Other than a bit of gas mileage loss, are there any other draw backs or compromises for street usage?

      Realistically, I will drive my car 99% on the street. I am looking for mods to increase performance, but not ruin the driving experience. I am used to high powered rear wheel drive cars, so the less FWD feel the better. I have noticed that the car feels more planted accelerating out of or through a corners vs trying under braking and am looking for the comp version to help even that out and why I am looking at it over the regular, adjustable version.

      Thank you

      No binding reported whatsoever on this unit. The comp controller, much like the stock unit (also made by Haldex) is programmed to react normally during everyday driving occurences, such as pulling into a parking space.

      Once again, no adverse effects reported in slippery driving conditions. Our local drivers (we are in Canada after all) with this mod installed can confirm that.

      You sound like most of our customers who buy this controller. You may want to give us a call so we can run through the technical aspects of the Haldex Comp. We can more easily explain the differences between this unit and the switchable variety that way...
