    I have an 05 A4 B6 with a 3.0 6-speed quattro. On low traction surfaces, like dirt, my car suffers from a lot of understeer during high speed turns. Is there a way to counter this? I'm guessing using the ebrake to start a drift would be a bad idea with the quattro system. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    A mess.

    Upgraded rear sway bar would be the easiest fix. Putting the battery in the trunk would help a bit. Stiffer rear springs would also help.
