What I'm saying is that On the track I use my left foot to do most of my
braking, The only time that I shuffle my right foot onto the pedal is
when I need to use the clutch. No I don't use it to settle the
suspension.... If your having to do that you need to take another look at
The TQ's do not come with bypass valves, the S4 and S6 do but it's more
to prevent the drop throttle pressure spike from popping the intercooler
apart. Regardless of if the car has a bypass valve you still need to
keep not only the turbo spooled up but the intake manifold pressurised
for the best on throttle response, therefore the need to left foot brake.
