    I'm just playing devil's advocate here but, wouldn't Lamborghini have thought of that since in essence they are one of the top sports car companies out there? Around a track I would see an AWD performing better than a RWD. Just my .02

    I'm actually suprised they don't have a variable system.
    AWD > RWD at the start
    RWD > AWD at top end
    AWD > RWD in corners
    East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',
    we're gonna do what they say can't be done.

    I do understand where your coming from. I come from a racing background tho and when i felt like ripping through gears in the F430 I would turn the TC off and just have a blast catching the ass end and throwing it in corners. With the G, my E-Gear and AWD i have to wait till the car starts to roll before i smash on it and than i feel like all there is to it is revving out gears. Still fun no doubt but not the same as RWD

    forfend 1 last thing the old skylines have a flipswitch like that but it has to be done from a stop as in the R30-R34 skylines do that i believe. awd to rwd and then rwd to awd.

    It's as simple as removing the front driveshaft from trans to diff...done it on an older 6.0 VT...

    How about doing a CF driveshaft from Tecnocraft? Owner of Monarchy Fashion is on here as well and he said that made a huge difference. Look into that
    Just noticed your post, il try and track down his number, thanks! Like the CF driveshaft idea too

    Yep, that's really all it takes.

    Some go so far as to remove the front diff and it's contributing parts for the weight savings but if it were me, I'd just pull the driveshaft and replace the remaining one with a CF version and call it a day... Easy to put back in when you want to
