I keep telling people, the SVTF will oversteer on command...

Good job man! Definitely keep that wheespin under control. One of the best things I ever did to learn to drive fast without wheelspin was to drive one gear higher than I normally would. Made me learn how to maintain speed as I could no longer accelerate quite so much and made me a much better driver. Ended up much faster in 3rd gear than I had been in 2nd, and then even faster when I could use 2nd with real discipline.
Don't waste another minute waiting on parts, or anything else. Just get out there and start racing! You will suck at first, and you will be slower than many other cars, but the only thing you will regret is not starting earlier...
