My oldest is 11 and she is a Jeepster and already has the jeep picked out that she wants. She already drives quite well but she tends to head for the most difficult obstacle. Makes it hard on the road. LOL I think her first test will end in 4X4ing the test car.

The traction control is definitely more aggressive sometimes. Even with TCS off I have felt it kick in. I went to the track with our local club (STLCGP) and the presidents car with the same mods as mine (3.4 pulley, Cone filter, and exhaust) was running 14.2'* with I believe high 1.9 - 2.0 60ft. times. He also was running race gas, pulled extra weight, and took headlight out. I was running 14.90 with a horrible 2.3 60ft. time. I was launching off idle and I couldn't get any traction. I ran the car just like on the street with pump gas, headlight in, and all weight in car. So I was .7 slower but the 60 ft. times would've put me within .4. I would guess the headlight, race gas, and weight savings would be less than a .1 difference. So I figure that I am within .5 of an equally modded GTP which I am pretty happy with considering all the other factors that Scott had pointed out.
