    Guess it depends on the car, but with the stock tires and a dry day I was able to light up the inside front tire in my 126hp Pontiac Vibe. I've sense upgraded the tires, and now it only does it in the rain when I'm pushing it too hard.

    Found it.

    Here's the article I read about the "XDS" being an issue when worked hard.
    First Drive: 2010 Volkswagen GTI reminds us why we like hot hatches so much — Autoblog
    Because of the MkVI GTI's new electronic limited slip, you can get on the power incredibly early when coming out of a corner. We're talking pre-apex here. And this is fantastic, allowing you to attack turns the way you might in an all-wheel drive car. The XDS partnered with the revised suspension means you're at full power more often than not, taking big speed into (and more importantly) out of bends faster than we were expecting given our impression of the outgoing GTI. However, and this is big, driving this way shortens the useful life of the brakes considerably when you push the GTI hard. Remember, electronic LSDs use ABS to stop the wheel from spinning so fade comes on fast.
