Lots of guys have told here that stock awd system would not like burnouts and stuff like that. Also this winter it came clear, that even my soccer mom audi quattro is handling better on snow than my GTO. GTO does really unexcepted things when going sideways on slippery surface (gravel and snow), but im sure that there must be something we could do about it.
I feel that the biggest problem is that when you slam the throttle, it is 50% chance of understeer and 50% of oversteer. I think it is caused by the VCU unit. But if i'm right, also evos have same kind of system, but no one complains about their handling.
I know there are some torsen style central differentials available for out platform. But I do not want to pay a price of my car for that. What would you suggest? Welding, new VCU or something else?
The Supercar upgraded center gets rid of everything you're talking about. I know because it completely transformed my car's handling and performance but the price has steadily going up. I think they're $2700 now with your core housing. That's kind of hard to swallow especially given you have to take the tranny out, apart, install, reset preloads, assemble, and put it back in the car.
