"In like a lamb, out like a lion" John Buffum quote. Honestly, when your
front does the "ohh my god" slide, just roll on the throttle, with your left
foot lightly on the brake. Then, you will experience your Audi quattro the
way it was supposed to be driven. After you get the hang of it, its best if
you find a parking lot full of snow and practice till you pee in your pants
laughing from blowing doughnuts.
