Hi guys.

Looking to do my first skid pan day in my 2010 XT Auto. Never done it in an AWD before only RWD. Anyone got any tips also anything i should switch off/pull etc and can i cause any damage tugging the E break or do i even need to?

Thanks in advance. :drinks:

Topic moved somewhere more relevant.

If they have instructors, get one to sit in with you for the first round. You can use the hand brake to help get the back end round, and gear selection will affect the ratio of the power delivered to the front and rear.

Start with a reasonably full tank of petrol to avoid fuel surge/starvation.

You need to pull the ABS/VDC fuse. You can do that in the car (normal fuses) Number 33, or in the engine bay.

It will light up your dashboard with errors.

I have heard, but not tried, unplug the Steering wheel sensor to disable the VDC.

The VDC WILL engage, that will take the fun out of sliding as it brakes to keep you safe.

Also take the car for a cool-down run after each time, this allows the engine to cool down as it does not get it's normal airflow around the skid-pan.

Some things to note - make sure it has plenty of fuel, oil and water/coolant has been topped up. Keep your windows UP, as the cement splash WILL come through the window. WASH the car asap afterwards to avoid paint damage (includes cleaning door jams).

Other than that - HAVE FUN !
