Wheel Spin

Hey everybody I'm new the world of GTR's I have Mpps tyres all around with plenary off tread but I find it to be slightly tail happy. I mean the traction keeps it on lock down but still found it sliding slightly on a not so sharp in second when I put my foot down. Is this normal for them to slide around? Also which R button makes them stop sliding obviously I would never turn the right button to off I'll end up in a ditch somewhere. Thanks

How much tread have the tyres got and how old are they, old worn tyres do slip a lot with that much power going through them, but basically yes it is normal. Have you had much experience with rear wheel drive cars?

You should be getting good traction in 3rd gear, but 2nd will kick out all the time with full throttle on bends. The difference between new and old rubber is huge - 50% more kick out on old rubber.

R mode will allow you more slip before the traction flashes and cuts power. I drive with traction in R all the time, on runflats, and find it very predictable and controllable, but you really have to be able to feel the car which some people can't do, then they blame the runflat tyres. The easiest way to control the rear end is by changing up as it twitches out, which is great fun through roundabouts.

Have you driven it on wet roads yet? It's superbly controllable because of the speed of the gearbox, but will frighten the inexperienced to death

Thanks your a star that helps me soo much. Yes I just got rid of my R8 and that was tail happy but you hit the nail on the head in 3rd it's all sweet I was in second when it happened but I played it like a pro well that's what the passenger said lol. I will try and play safe and defo need to take it out in the rain . Maybe a track day might help me get used to limits.
