Slamming down the pedal with TPS activated nitrous takes some getting used to. You know the feeling of a small loss of control to adjust for just from a WOT. Even my 75/100 shot can cause some needed quick adjustments. I bet it'* x3 in a 'vette juiced to 800HP. I bet she had to have alot of them "ice creams on a stick" to make up for the damage.

That'* why old Red Green uses those K cars alot!

I bet your Gxp on juice feels like Monte SS felt all the time. 315 hp ready to rip the front wheels off at a moments notice. That car had some of the worst torque steer I've ever delt with.
