I noticed some extra pick up when I switched to the summer tires.

wonder how long it would take you to get to this post. but yeah that was all the car had. 30hp and tq gain and a 7mph trap gain. i went from 14.2 @98 to 13.5@105 and from 232, 260 to 260, 290tq. i was for awhile. the only thing i keep going back to was u were on winter tires the first time and this time on summer tread. granted i had alil lag at the start cause i was in the low part of 2nd. but i still didn't pull an inch till around 90 when i gained a half car back by 100 when we stopped. i think we need to go out and try it again. i still have trouble sleeping because of this. no not really. but it does other me.
