i probably have more power than you, but since i switched to the new ECSTAs,
i can tromp on it in 2nd or even 1st, even at GGF and get instant hook up.
the sidewall is a little (or a lot softer) and takes power really well. in
fact, ive been trying to loosen up the rear of the car a little because i
havent been able to get any throttle steer lately unless i do rally style
turns. they are pretty amazing.
