Its pretty common actually. The VCT has a very good IRS system and, along with the LSD and half decent tyres, it will simply hook up and go.

I had the same problem with my VCT......not anymore though. Wheelspin is on call and even excessive now days.

Its not so much that I have bald tyres, more that the engine is putting out far more power.

If you go to aufalcon.com and into the articles section there is one called Caspers Car has Surgery. All the info on the car is in there. You might find it interesting.

Yeah they stick very well the VCTs. If you want wheelspin from take off, just put your foot on the brake and flaw it, although mine just slides out at the back. But if you wanted no traction you should have gone the HP, lots of fun there :)

Don't worry if you dont get wheelspin, getting power to the ground is what its all about
couple of simple mods custom 3 inch air intake,chip,extractors and 3 inch exhaust and you WILL keep most v8's honest. I do

Actually, I went for 2 1/2 inch exhaust and no chip and I make any V8 short of a Boss, LS1 or T3 feel very upset. Thats not to say I can beat them all, all of the time but I can beat most....most of the time.

Re: xr6 vct 2002 wheelspin

If you want to spin the wheels around a corner go buy a Commodore. Their IRS is so crap they dont stay on the road when driven hard around corners. This is partly why so many of them get wrapped around poles, a combination of bad handling AND the dickhead factor. And maybe bad roads have a little bit to do with it but not as much as the bad handling. I love being able to easily out accellerate them around corners in my Pulsar and watching them fishtailling all over the place and running into my lane because they cant get the power to the road.
