Default Front wheel prb. 99ssei

Everytime I want to race someone on a stop light, I hear a sound on the front of my car like it wants to fall apart. The first hit of the pedal to start, makes the sound. If I want it to not sound like that, than I hit the gas pedal slowly and than all the way down. But see I can't floor the pedal on the start, like to peel out type of procedure... I would have to start slow and than soonest I past the 10 miles per hour I can floor it all the way.

Anybody for suggestions.

My guess is that it'* your Traction Control trying to stop the front wheels from spinning. Try pressing your Traction Off button and see if that funny noise goes away...

Performance ride = stiffer suspension = electronic struts make an adjustment
