      Bone stock, no mods, DSG, 18" wheels. It was a cool night, only about 9C. Best 60 ft time, also on my best run, was 2.56. Sport mode, take foot off brake and mash the gas. :)

      Took it to http://shannonville.com for a Mix & Match evening. Threw it around the short track for a bit, and then over to the drag strip. Best time was a 15.12 1/4 mile @ 92.57 mph.

      According to the manual, attempting to rock the car by shifting between D and R repeatedly will disengage the traction control temporarily. I have never tried this and have no idea if it works.
