Trust me, the car is dangerous in cold weather. I nearly lost it a few times. The boost is all on none. One second a stock Honda Civic is pulling me in 1st gear, then the boost kicks in, in 2nd and it violently just slams you back. The last time it spun in 4th (multiple times) is when I first bought the car and was showing my family. That was with 2 people and 100 degree weather.... Since the 275mm PS2's, the traction got a little better.

Why it spools faster I dont know- Im sure that the car can breath much easier now. But a .81 is kinda tiny in the grand scheme of things.
Interesting.

Yes 124mph in the quarter is pretty stout. I love to do the 0-100mph sprints as it is soooo quick.

Tire spin has a lot to do with suspension settings. Mine suck so the 315's can be blown away up to 60mph. Also depends on when Thor's hammer hits. The more lag you have the harder the hit, the harder the hit the easier to bust loose the balognas.
Same here with the tires being blown off but my 0-60 is terrible. 60-100 would be a better run for my laggy setup.

The 1.625 primaries were striaght choking my motor up- but thats due to increased displacement, porting, and cams. I am not lying when I say that the car spools like 5-600 rpm faster on the same tune.
Cool!
