    I agree. I was driving my moms 04 mustang gt and gassed it.. I didnt even spin.. i dont think lol.. and i had it in the floor and i just felt it die out, i didnt feel any braking tho.

    I have a 2001 WS6. I used the ceramics JET long tube headers. They have done really good for me.
    Also, run with your traction control off.

    BTW.... why the hell are you comparing a Mustang to a Firebird on a low-end start? Mustang pull like a biotch in a race, and they never recover...

    I don't have a choice - I don't have TC

    Just an empty slot where the switch would normally be...

    I guess it was an option/delete, and the original owner didn't want it.

    only in rain. otherwise off

    also I think it can be good to teach you how to do the best take off.
    basically if you spin too much( I think with just one wheel) it'll kick in and slow you down but if both tires are spinning it doesn't always kick in and you might still take off nicely.

    it can teach you how to launch just right without spinnng. so if you spin too much it'll kick in, and if you take off just right, it won't.

    that's the way I use it, and after you're used ot it pretty good, just turn it off.

    As soon as I hopped in mine the other day I turned it off and hit a few on ramps to the high way and I swear it seems a little faster with it off! I basically left it in first as I was getting on the highway behind this car. I let them get a long way down the road then gunned it, and I'll put it like this... it put a little more fear in my heart again because I took off so fast! I love how at just after first gear you're already doing highway speeds and just into 2nd, you're already speeding.

    with v6s it only decreases throttle and with v8s it decreases throttle and applies the brakes, I read that in the instruction manual. So that's why its worse on our v8s

    Off. TCS has no place in a race. If you want traction get tires.
