    Default Front wheels spinning

    Had my SRI CDTI (150) for a week now and am slowly learning how to not spin the front wheels all the time!

    The tyres have plenty of thread left on them, but I don't think they're very good as the power from the engine just spins them if you put your foot down.

    Is this the case or do I just have really cr*p tyres?

    Cheers

    I think you're right

    It doesn't have the traction control (it's on a 56 plate)...

    The TC is very hit & miss whether does any good or not. Mine does very little, even when the wheels are spinning, whereas others have TC that is OTT. As far as I know the TC is does more if the wheels spin when using small amounts of power than if your giving it a boot full.

    After I read about the traction control, I was glad I didn't have it (in some ways). Bit of a control freak. However, if I could get maximum acceleration without spinning, it would have it's advantages.

    I don't have it though...
