I'm more of a cruiser once I get up to speed, but at the lights I'm always the first one to go, ..1st and 2nd gear rather spiritedlly. Time to time, I'll get the occasional drag with another car so WOT on 1st and 2nd gear is just as common for me. Question: Is it safe to go WOT in 1st and 2nd gear with the Evolve-R? What happens ..do the rear wheels keep spinning or does the traction control take care of it?
Thanks sparoz.

I am sure that most of the drivers with Evolve (or other tunes) have not upgraded the charge pipe. Having issues with it seems to be random. (some people have it pop off stock, other ones drive stage 3 without issues)
+1. Right foot modulation is required to get the quickest time - you can't just wot. Apart from the initial batch of cars where the chargepipe keeps popping out on stock cars, I haven't heard much recently. I wouldn't worry about chargepipie unless it pops out.
