I would guess the dancing on the pedals is an attempt to gain traction in slippery stuff.

ProgSi....you crack me up sometimes.

I concur with Colin. When you're slippin' and slidin' on an AWD car, you want to gas whenever you can and brake just for the right amount so that you do't go fishtailing when exiting a turn at high speed.
Go try it at a snowy parking lot. You realised it;s alot faster (if you;re good at it) than to stomp on the brakes.

Four things:

1) Managing weight transfer. If you tap the brake you get a bit of weight transfer forward. Front bites more, rear bites less. Much better than bolting on a 138mm rear sway bar.

2) Traction control. Dragging the brake slightly will reduce wheelspin.

3) ABS. Giving it a little gas while braking hard keeps the diffs engaged and the wheels from locking.

4) And most important of all: it just settles the car.

Thumbs up

I had a feeling Jon B. would post something on this thread...

Dibs on being Suby Gal's navi...

Grp. B was banned because they were "unsafe" but the WRC cars are going just as fast with the improvements in suspension, engine management, transmissions, etc.

I too am an aspiring rally driver...hopefully VERY soon...

A AUDI Group B car with over 600 hp, driving a car like this was only for the brave and rally drivers had to have Ice water in there Vanes with nerve's of steel. But it looks like one hell of a ride !!!!
