instead of one wheel spining when ur lighting up the tires, both of them do. It leaves 2 black marks after a burnout instead of one.

i knew that much but does it make the car faster or give it better gas mileage? or is that it

lol, thats wut i was trying to say. Sry if u misread it. No it doesnt do anything to milage or hp. Ur motor isnt inhaling/exhaling air/fuel so i dont c how it can increase power. Its got nothing to do with the computer to so...

i could very well be wrong but it feels like acceleration is allot better. it stays straight when you punch it...

It is for traction. Intead of 10" of tread from 1 drive tire on the ground, there are 2 drive tires (10" x 2): 20". Spinning your tires is badass but when your racing (mainly launching) thats the exact opposite of what you want. Thats why you spend so much on parts to help you hook up out of the hole. Hope this helps.
