You'll note my name in AS rungroup 5.

First autocross I'll have driven in. I'm an experienced road-race type, I'm used to triple digit speeds and half hour long sessions. This is a hell of a lot more technical involving more to do with transitions, you're the only car on the "track" that takes place in a huge parking lot with a buncha cones. I'll probably get eaten alive as far as competition goes, there's a bunch of S2000's that will probably hand me my ass.

But.

It'll be fun as hell nonetheless.
I'm pondering pulling my fuse that powers EDL, a sort of anti-wheel spin system that robs power under extremely tight turns at low speeds. I'll lose other stuff if I do that, stuff like my speedometer and antilock brakes. There is presently no other way to disable it.

Now if it rains... I'll pwn the track. :P

You're sure there's no place downstream of the fuse yet upstream of those other things you can install a switch? If you're carefully monitoring your usage of the brakes, you may not need your ABS, and you shouldn't need your speedometer unless your curiousity gets the better of you when you race.

Pump up those tires, and be careful of understeer. Audis tend to EAT tires at autocross.

from what i understaind people (even profetional auto x-ers) come out with slightly faster times with the EDL on than off. i would try it both ways to see which suits you for your driving style.

in my wagon, i do tend to run with the esp off, because im FWD with open dif, and i do get a lot of wheel spin on corners. when it cuts the ammount of fuel deliverd, i loose alot of time. but you with QUATTRO have mechinacal LSD to help cut down on large wheel spin, so the EDL would just be a minor inconvienience,(i would think anyway)..

ide love to know ither way :)
