Good eye.
Well documented that the F1's are horrid in cold weather.
That night, I found out first hand how bad they really are.
Hadn't done any hard launching in that kind of weather, coupled with less traction from a street than a race track, which is what I'm used to = unable to get any decent raction until I hit 3rd gear.
Actually, I couldn't floor the gas until then, or the tires would just break loose and loose forward momentum. This run was the third of four. In the first run, I spun so bad at the launch, that M3NTAL got so far ahead of me, that he won the first race! Kudo's to M3NTAL M3, he really showed his skill in launching the M3. He beat me in every run off the line. *th-up*

The other three runs though, once I had realized just how bad the traction was, and adjusted the throttle, the Z showed it's stuff.

Definately was fun though. Was fun learning how to modulate the throttle in less than ideal traction conditions.

Gotta be nuts to get a foot or two inbetween two 300+ HP cars at a launch! :D But then again, that's the fun of it all!
Thanks for your help that night.

Alway's love the sound of a V8 at full throttle.

Stock exhaust.
