Well, I love my car even more right now... I am sick to my stomach and shaky as hell right now.... A car blew a red light right by my house. I saw it and braked and swerved. Honestly, I don't know how I didn't spin out (it's raining) or get smashed... i have no flippin idea. That goddam tank handled like a rally racer's dream though...

Don't you have to hold the button down for 10 seconds or something to truly turn it off.

I just wish tuners would add the capability to modulate how much the computer interferes. Then the user could fine tune it to their preference. four settings would be nice: no fun stock mode, little bit of slip before interfering, don't help me unless **** is getting ugly, and racecar I'm on my own mode.

I hate that the T/C and Advancetrac won't completely screw off in our trucks. If I want it off, I want it off! The focus is the same way, doesn't let you do e-brake slides on ice at all, even with the T/C off.

Yup I got spoiled with my gto. One push of a button, drop it in third, and I can do rolling 70mph burnouts at will :-)

Nothing worth writing home about. Still on the stock rear end so I can't launch on a sticky tire.

I got one run in with a 2.1 60' (****ty) and ran a 10.8 @ 132 spinning down the first half of the track....

Then I got kicked out for not having a roll cage. Don't really want to put a cage in it so it may stay as is for now. After owning it for almost 10 years now I'm getting ready to move on anyways.

It's not that impressive from a dig due to suspension/ traction limitations but from a roll it's a nasty sob. Many 100k+ sports cars have been left wondering what just spanked them. (All events occurred on a closed course. Professional drivers only. Do not attempt) :-)
