I wish I was closer to Stuttgart so I could get some experienced eyes to take a look...

See, I thought the car felt better on 5 too, and even on the logs, I was hitting 16-17 PSI on 5 compared to 14.5 on Map 2. But Terry is the guy to ask, and when I did, he told me flat out, run Map 2 if you're not running higher octane.

If you are running an 85 or 102 mix, then it is ok to run Map 5, other than that, stay on 2.

What kind of tires are you running for Winter tires? There should be no reason at all you are breaking traction that easy. I was at 350rwhp before upgrading to ISO and adding the charge pipe (which I think has helped with boost leak). I never break traction unless I'm starting from a dig, or on a strong corner.

You should never log on anything lower than 3rd gear anyways, so basically... if you're breaking traction in 3rd gear, it's cause you have shitty un safe tires IMHO

If you make it down to Stuttgart, Sw4y1313 is the guy to talk to.
