Mine'* dead, and I don't miss it. With all the weight on a FWD car, with good tires that are siped, I can control my car in the winter. More difficult with my modded power, but manageable.

Is it dead because you killed it? and if you did how do you un nannify the car?


Also in my Regal is it possible with the Intense ECU to truly defeat trac control when the button is turned off....im tired of smokeum like the dickens then quickly hook up then spin um again burnouts....there just not as cool as smokeum till you cant breath burnouts the Bonne makes.......::Ryans Boss:: "you know anything about any kids doing burnouts in the parking lot?" ::Ryan:: "Burnouts.....whats a burnout?? "
