follow my instructions and you will.
Yes, follow those instructions. Take a 70k 414 HP sports car, turn off the traction control, then drag race it from a standstill and complain about failures of the car.

What was BMW thinking? Making a car that couldn't launch on a wet road with the nannies off?

I can see why many of us have zero issues with hop or DCT issues. BMW must go crazy with warranty claims they KNOW in their gut is from abuse.

Guys, nothing wrong with picking at a car's flaws, but asking it to do what it wasn't and shouldn't be designed to do seems a bit odd.

Not saying you don't get wheel hop in other circumstances, and not saying this isn't a great product. I'm saying this is a bad example of what one has to do to get wheel hop.

Cheers,
