Well, I lose traction in 3rd in my if it's very damp, and I only have half of the horsepower at my disposal!! Guess why I'm not bothered about getting more than 300bhp out of mine.
Obviously mine has narrower tyres and lower gearing, but there you go! It will just take time to learn how much loud pedal you can use in various situations. I'm sure you'll have loadsa fun finding out where the limit is.

I always drive with the TCS off. *thanks god for the off button* I don't like anyone telling me how not to spin MY tires TYVM. Gonna get some dyno charts soon? Love to see what that power looks like at the wheels.

. Mind you, I am surprised you were taking it so high up the rev range in third gear on back roads. I don't have TCS, but have long since learnt that 3rd gear can be fatal in the high rev band on anything other than straight roads. Nearly considered disposable nappies .

Ylee,
Can we expect to see Aeromonster appearing on the Maptun website in the customers cars section soon, as Peter Messenger's car does....?

Well there is a distinct smell of burned rubber in the Dunfermline area so I guess he's passed by on the way home.

I wouldnt get out of bed for any thing less than 400bhp

I hope its something that can be easily resolved on the lack of power (comparative) front
