Anything with over 500rwhp needs some sort of slick IMO to have any chance of gripping...turning tyres is fun but it gives others a chance that wouldn't normally have one with ets or slicks on

We were running 640rwhp which is the low boost setting, on 205/50/15 $50 street tyres and still managed to beat a 700awhp R34, and we were blazing the tyres. Not much more fun than beating cars frying tyres with 4 up in the car.

Ah yeah that was you on the brake trying to spool up and I came on the inside and baked the tyres in front of you, sorry about covering you in smoke...My car comes up crazy fast on boost and doesn't even feel like its a 42r under the bonnet.... Did you take notice how fast it came on when I came passed? Are you going to look into what I told You about the setup?

The e85 will help with some of the lag but you need to get a ball bearing to really shorten the lag...
