I didn't like that it takes so long to activate that I would probably lose the heads-up race (not that that matters). Also, check out the lack of traction I had

The track was more slippery on that day anyways. The next run I tried just flooring it from idle but with DSC OFF, and had pretty much the same result.

Might have been fine on this night, but it was our only heads-up race and I didn't want to risk it. Did MDM + D5, which has been most consistently fastest for me.

OP - you said you have all-seasons, correct? If this is true - I assume you would have been closer to mid-12's in a stock E90 Dct
