At 120kph, the 5 driver increased the throttle from 15% to 17% ha ha..

Seriously though, this is the only car I've ever owned that has limited off the line capabilities due to traction. 1st gear can be very touchy with lot's of unrecoverable wheelspin, but second ususally hooks up Ok.

I agree, those rear tires just turn to butter. My 95 M3 hooks up a lot better.

I have on snow tires, as I found out today traction is an issue even in 3rd gear.

definitly, the software I aquired from MarkD works great at high end, on the hwy you will notice a lot, the exhaust I'm not sure about, the larger cats plus the cat-back gives much better flow & the aftermarket resonator is much smaller & lighter than stock, I know I reduced a lot of weight, but HP gains from the exhaust is hard to tell
