SVTRSST oh no, that sounds more like a slipping clutch, i solved the problem, and it was just because i didnt have one of my battery grounds tight, the transmision one. pulling hard again, i will go tomorrow to race, hope it runs strong xD hehe

focusmaniaczx3 bwaaa i hate traction control. worthless junk. test drove a magnum srt-8 last year with that junk and it sucked. it was scary fast from a roll but the SOB wouldnt spin a tire to save my life.

thenorm turn off your Traction control. its the little button near the Ebrake handle, the icon kinda looks like a tire. when u have turned it off the TC light should stay on, in ur dasg

the traction control is what stole all you power when u spun tires briefly. unfortunatly its wait a second or two to give it back.

remember that you have to turn it off each time you start the car cuz it resets. You also can pull a fuse (but this disables ABS too). but i cant remember which one. a search would tell.
