    What BHP are you running, much wheelspin?

    What BHP and torque are you running, and much wheelspin?

    Woundering where the magic limit goes, for what's useable..
    And what is your setup?

    Pretty much standard spec and is happy to spin in first or second gear if you boot it. Tyres have good tread too.

    Rain is fun lol.

    If you feed the power on correctly it will just pull like a train.
