Haldex can only send 50% to the rear, and if they used the Focus RS setup, it can briefly overdrive the rear to 60%. That's the same as a quattro or xDrive car before slip.
It sounds like you're saying that the xdrive or Quattro in a RWD-based vehicle (e.g. Audi RS4 or BMW M3/M5) is the same as the Haldex in a FWD-based on (Golf R)…

Maybe I misunderstood your statement?
Nope. Haldex is 100% fwd until there is slip, and then it's limited to 50% max to the rear. A rwd based BMW runs 60% to the rear with no slip and can send 100% to the rear under slip.
Ah that clarified your original statement to me. Cheers!!

18.4 secs to 130 mph means it a slug on the top end
Stg2 F8x e30 will trap around 129 in the quarter mile
Even with bad traction it took me around 11.9 on street tires and the trap was 127
That is an eternity longer for that golf to get to 130
In the real world at 75 mph it would get destroyed
So that statement is true

Umm, a Golf R is half the price and has 50% less motor, this isn't surprising. More expensive, more powerful cars tend to be faster. News at 11.

And did you just compare a stage 2 car to a stock one? A stage 2 Mk7 Golf R 1/4 mile is around 11.5s but only traps in the low teens, they're in the low 13s range for 0-130. Of course a modified S55 is going to be quicker. The Mk8 will be a little faster than the Mk7, the new Conti turbo is better than the old IS38, but it's still not going to be approaching an S55 or S58 unless it's running over 30psi.

I had a Mk5 GTI for a few years, it was a great little car (mine was an 09, so it had the TSI found in the later generations). Wouldn't mind picking up a Mk6/7 at some point, as from what I've heard the interiors were much improved over the Mk5. I'd probably go for an R though, because traction in 1st and 2nd can be an issue in the GTI lol. I'm sure the Mk8 is even more comfortable and quiet, but the little details especially inside seem to be a massive swing-and-a-miss. Also the styling is just sooooo bland...the Mk8 R looks like what the Mk8 GTI should have looked like. Still, it might be the last German hot hatch we get with a manual, as I believe Europe is DSG-only for almost every VW performance vehicle now.

It has been messy, but how often do car companies publicly fix something.
I will take it as a good thing, anyone ordering new cars will get the new HW/SW.
