I have a query for something that is bothering me and I am hoping someone can assist. I have a mildly modded mk5 R32 in N/A trim. At my altitude it does about 180whp at all 4 wheels.
I have 19" BBS CH-R's fitted with 225/35/19 Yokohama S drives.
The car has Koni Sport shocks , H&R springs , H&R front and rear sway bars , UNIbrace and a Haldex Gen2 HPP controller with wireless remote.
The controller is always set to race mode , or at least I hope so.
The last few days I have been pushing my car quite hard and find that on tight corners ( 1st or 2nd gear ) I am still getting what appears to be massive FWD understeer. I can hear and feel the front wheels losing traction and the car starts understeering badly. I was under the impression that the moment the front wheels lost traction the Haldex would lock the rear diff and power would be transmitted to the rear aiding my problem?
I am quite concerned as a friend with a stage 2 S3 that is Haldex Gen 2 HPP equipped has no such problem on similar wheels , same size and the same tires.
Could the weight of the R32 be the problem or is it possible that the Haldex controller is faulty?
If I use launch control I am not lighting up the front wheels only which indicates the car's 4motion system is still functional.
Possible I have "over driven" the tire's grip limits?
