I have a 2000 M Roadster.

Well I am going over to a friends house around 10 pm, raining whole day. A 540i in front of me driving like a F1 race cutting and weaving, in the rain with light traffic. We catch the next light. Traction control on of course. He REVs the car and I look over. Cool traction control battle in the rain. Light goes green both cars jump off the line spin for a sec. (I assume he has traction control too!) and I have the pedal pegged to the floor and left the power control to the computer. AWSOME, spin, bog bog, spin a bit and go! 1st tied 2nd M Roadster pulling hard on the 540i.. I have a 3 car lead. I hit the brakes, the dude keeps it nailed and disappears into the night.

On the way back from friends house, a Z28 BIG tires and LOUD as heck.. (Sounded pretty sweet though.. Nice LS1 V8!)
I am thinking that thing is a torque monster! we catch the light he looks over and REVs a bit and smiles. I am think ok Traction control battle 2! Once again same story as before BUT Z28 had no traction control device I all I heard was BRRRRR! and tires spinning.. as I walked away.. he tried 3 or 4 times to get going but to no avail. heheheheh.. Technology rules sometimes...!
