    Is it just me, or is it quite hard to get our cars of the line. I mean if your at a set of lights and you put your foot down, does anyone else find the cars always struggling for traction and spends most of its time with the traction control kicking in? And before anyone says, it was a dry day and i'm running Conti SportContact 2's.

    In the wet? Yes even on very light throttle (running new sportcontact 2's)

    In the dry? No. But that's maybe because my 1.6 hasn't got too much power, just enough to launch without spinning wheels
