That just means you are not driving it hard enough ;)

Benefits of a JDM Boy racer/drift background... Helps you utilise AWD better

It was fine on the track - but then the brakes went soft, but that's another story. :)

Lambo handbrakes have always been shit,

Maybe you needed carbon ceramic for your track endeavours

Or maybe just one of those "ohhh well, bloody Lamborghini..."
Enjoying Life!!!!

No, I'm a fan.  I've driven more than 80,000km in my Lambos and enjoyed most of them. They aren't perfect though. ;)

Welcome!  Nice garage you've got there - I really love the blue colour on the S5.  It's a rarity to see an Audi in anything other than silver or grey, which is a real surprise considering they have one of the cheapest 'paint to match' programs I've ever come across.

Re the RWD conversion on the Gallardo - are you pulling out the front diff completely or just disconnecting the driveshafts but leaving the hardware in place?  I had an 05 G and now a Balboni 550-2, and I find the biggest advantage of the RWD setup is the reduction of weight over the front axle, giving a noticeably sharper turn-in and less tendency to push understeer on the track.

Either way, it should completely change the car from feeling like a big Audi TT to something that you have to show a heap more respect to drive quickly.  Enjoy!
Hi Mate,

Pulling out the front diff, half shafts and prop shaft.  About 140lbs worth of gear.  I purchased a hub kit from the US for around 400 bucks that plugs the front wheels and basically thats it.  Its a pretty simple conversion.  Ill try to post pics once Lui starts the work.

In other news, does anyone have an LP550-2 in sydney that they'd let me take a few photos of?  I can supply the beer.

Sounds like a good bang-for-your-buck modification and the 70kg weight loss is around a 5% difference from stock so pretty substantial.  I'd be very interested to see some pics of the conversion as it goes along.
