I just crossed the 500 mile break in milestone so I'm starting to get on it a little now

The gears are awesome - with my current 384rwhp, I get no traction. I love it

Might have some excessive camber issues too. heck, you may have to with those tires tucked that far up in the fenders.


On the upside, it looks like you successfully shut the T/C off just fine.
