Converting huracan to RWD?
 
Is converting the Huracan 610-4 to RWD as easy and straightforward (and reversible) as it is converting the AWD gallardo to 2wd? Anybody has done it? Any feedback?

I like the RWD idea but dislike the body changes done to the 580 and if can be easily swapped back/forth then that makes it a no brainer.

Buy the 580 and swap the body panels. Probably the easier and cheaper way to do it.
I for sure like the 610 looks more.

You really want to do that? It would be like taking one leg off of a horse. The horse was designed, optimized and all it's systems finely tuned to run on all four legs. I'm sure it could adapt and run on three but....

It seems to me that the Huracan is a very "integrated" blend of machine and computer technology, where the "whole" is greater than the sum of the parts. You'd just be creating damaged goods.

If you try it, please give us a full report as I'd like to be proven wrong.

yes it seems counterproductive. I'm paying about 25k extra for AWD and really can't justify giving it a vasectomy.

I'd be glad to work with a Huracan owner interested in converting to 2WD. Message me for details.

Has this been done and/or attempted by anybody yet?

Seems to be a **hot** topic (and many converts swearing by it) around the Gallardo forums but dont see much discussion about RWD'ing an AWD huracan.

On the gallardo its a quick and reversible process - is it similar setup on the H?

On the gallardo and the R8 it is very easy to do.
Takes about 2 hrs worth of labor and the kit cost 399.00
Weight saving are close to 90lbs
I have done a few cars

Someone has to be the first! It won't be me.

Neither me ! On the H the power distribution to the front and rears is controlled electronically. Also the front diff is electronically controlled as well as the traction control is programmed for the AWD. Therefore the whole software for the distribution must be changed in the TCU. If not everything is done the professional way with knowledge of the programs you may in big danger driving the car as the behaviour is absolutely unknown.

IMHO, Just switch to Sport and you're on 80% RWD. And the option to trade it in for an RWD is always there.

Lol, right +1. The Huracan is a comepletley different beast than the Gallardo variant as it's now a fully managed system whereas the Gallardo/LP series were purely mechanical. Hence, crappy and exactly why I did the Balboni on my LP560 Spyder.

I talked to Valentino at the Concourse D'Elegance in Amelia Island and asked him 'With your edition of the Galardo you chose to go 2wd, why is that?'

His response was literally a split second later ....'Because that's the way it should have been in the first place David!' I burst out laughing, I agree with you completely Mr. Balboni.

The Huracan on the other hand, miles better and I honestly have grown to love the LDS in my Huracan. The change is apparent and a welcome feature.
