    350z buddy calls me out...

    We met a while back and he said that he just got a 350z. He told me he wanted to go from a stop to 60 because he didn't want to risk getting a ticket more than he had too to race. I was like you know I have awd and I'm modded right(TBE,UPpipe,15psi,bov)? I was like you will spin off the line and I'll just take off. He said he is going to turn on traction control.

    i raced a [hot girl in a] 350Z from about 20-70 or so and pulled slowly but surely to about 1 or 1.5 carlengths with a mbc, axleback, and intercooler hoses... you should bet lunch on it or something

    Traction Control vs AWD

    This will be no contest to 60 mph! You should bet your friend a steak dinner or something.

    Especailly considering the optimal 0-60 time is someone who knows how to drive w/ out traction control as it will pull fuel and allow a novice to accelerate faster but a good driver can do better w/ out it.

    That is why I posted here, because I find it kind of funny. I heard traction control helps because it cuts power from back there(RWD). When peeps race at the track they turn it off for the best e.t.

    I used to turn my TCS off (Tiburon V6 6spd) for aggressive driving or track use. It would just make the car feel like it was bogging down.

    Of course, my brand new-picked it up today-'04 WRX doesn't have TCS, thankfully.

    One of the things I hated about the Tiburon, was always having to remember to switch off the TCS. I don't recall it ever helping in any situation that I drove the car in, in the 57k I put on it in the year that I had it. Including snow storms, rain, track use, etc.
