    Default CDTI Diesel traction?!

    Why can I get not traction?

    I've put 225 Pirelli P6000's on the front but they are no better than the NCT5s

    AJA, do you have problems with wheel spin in 3rd? You should have more power and torque?!?

    I don't know what else to do, I've ordered some Yoko 235mm T1-S but I can't get them for 2 weeks and will they even make a diffrence or am I damed to watch my speedo rise and go no where for all of time?

    If I put my foot down in 2nd the stearing wheel tries to pull out of my hand as the wheels go all over the place.

    If I put my foot down in 1st!!! the whole car bounces on the road...

    3rds not too bad usually settled by 50mph

    i think youre either running masses of power or you have something wrong with the car. Mine just spins it wheels in 1st till the traction control limits it, change into 2nd and it blips some wheelspin but soon regains traction and its off. none at all in 3rd and defiently doesnt bounce around etc.

    I've got a 1.9cdti with a tuning box, K&N filter, Powerflow exhaust and 19's with Yoko 235's and i only get wheelspin in third when turning corners whilst booting it at around 40-45 mph ish. 1st, yes, loads of wheelspin TC cuts in, 2nd, quite a bit TC cuts in again. no "bouncing around" though. When mine spin they just break traction smoothly until TC cuts in.

    The bouncing syndrome sounds like bad springs/shocks ...

    Didn't bounce before I had it tuned up and the suspension seems fine. Push down and it settles almost instantly.

    Interested that Caterman has some 235 Yokos on though, do you have 7" (width) rims? Did the Yokos make any difference to grip?

    No m8, 8" rims. it does grip better now i have 19's rather than the 17" NCT's i had on. not had any different tyres on the 19's so can't compare those sorry m8.

    Nutron, do you not have the traction control kicking in? also, wider tyres doesnt always mean better grip as youve found out.
