    When you buy a TMC enabled disc, all you are buying is a right to use the TMC system - there is nothing special on TMC discs other than a code that tells the nav system to enable TMC.

    Getting a good start with 4wd

    I'm thinking about going to Santa Pod with a couple of mates. On the Run What You Brung website it mentions that you should attempt a burnout to warm your tires, although you should not do this in a 4wd car. I understand that this could do some damage if you tried it so my question is:

    What's the best way to get off the line quickly without doing any damage to the car?

    Not 4wd i know, but ive always found dartford tolls a nice way of practising starts [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] It will take you a while to get it perfect mate, whats good for one person isnt for another. Just keep the revs to a sensible limit when waiting to launch, you dont want a fried clutch now [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I have never been able to wheel spin my car before.......the haldex unit prevents this from happening.

    The best way to launch from a start (but do not do it too often) is to lightly rev the car upto 2000 revs to get the turbo upto speed at idle with 1st gear selected, and then on the green light drop the clutch and punch the juice pedal in balance and see will fly.

    The first time I did this I had a grin [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] on my face for hours in my S3.

    Glazed the clutch on my astra turbo and it smelt bad for 2 weeks!!!
    It was so bad I had to lie to the gf and said it was some loose plastic from the road that got caught on the radiator fins.... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/angel.gif[/img]
