Not very many people can get traction in the rain, no matter what they drive, esp if they are racing. Playing around on a wet road is just not smart at all, the percentage of things going wrong is not in the drivers favor.

With my lead foot, the TC is a very good requirement.

Yeah traction in the rain sucks.. i was getting off the highway on to the off ramp which is this big ass circle... i was going pretty slow but during the turn i felt the car slipping ..it was scary i didn't wanna slam into the barrier.. no more driving in the rain for me .. i'll just take my sentra when it rains from now on..

I messed with a Trans Am. He tore me a new one. Can the SVT hang with a Trans Am? Are you sure it wasn't a Firebird?

Why don't all you people just go down to your local strip? How in hell does street racing, especially in the rain, "rock"? Traction control is just idiot insurance. Wanna-be-racers like you are who is making my car issurance so high.

The closest strip is an hour away and drag racing sucks because the SVT Focus isn't good at drag racing as for the trans am thing I'm almost definate it was my friend was the one who called out it being a trans am I beat it then Later that night I had a Ram Air Trans Am race me and smoke the crap outta me I think the first one I was racing was the slower Trans Am (V6?)or maybe it was a firebird and my friend was just wrong
