  3. Quaife diff and ASR

    Alfa GTA
    When i bought my 156 GTA a couple of weeks ago immediately installed a Quaife Diff. What's the best option when driving sporty on a curvy road? ASR off or on? Do they work together or do they counterwork? I now put the ASR off and i believe it drives better.
