ah so now you have finally experienced the magic! great fun isnt it? then they go and spoil it by fitting traction control to later cars, which never completely turns off! great for most drivers (traction control) but why cant those of us that dont want it, have it switched off completely?

the budget tyres wont last long. especially if that keeps happening! it is shocking the first time it happens, as your used to the front running wide in front wheel drive cars. rear wheel drive is better. no torque steer on high powered models and, as you found out, so much more fun!
