He never answered the question. Interesting because there'* tons of suggestions that could be given if he answered the "Why do you want to disable TC" question.

IME, the two tires you are mentioning will have a huge difference. Firesucks always smoked up easy for me....while Michie'* always grip nice in anything for me.

Not sure on the 95 S2 but my SC uses timing retardation to TC

The torque curve on the Series 1 was lower in the powerband. Even though it had less, it delivered it lower off the line. Makes it easier to do burnouts than with a Series 2 L36.
