With my 135, it seems to jam on the brakes over and over again, jolting the car several times until I let off the gas altogether or it finally gets traction. I had to hit the DTC button just to keep all the teeth in my head.
i'm not sure what else you've driven....but other cars i've driven are much worse than this!

i can't even get the traction control in my car to kick in when i was on summer tires. With winter tires it kicks in quite a bit due to the 'softness' of the tires mainly..
