Ok, aside from being responsible, adult, proper and civilized I do enjoy hearing the occasional "chirp" as I muscle from 1 to 2nd gear. My 530i does this no problem. My new, to me, 2003 996 C4 pulls strong and the clutch seems fine as well, but no "chirp". All kidding aside, does this car have so much foot print that it precludes "busting 'em loose"?

Just curious... B)

Yep...Unlike old muscle cars, the engineering is outstanding on the P Cars. The engine is mounted right over the LARGE rear tires and the center of gravity is very low for the motor..By design. Also, if you have the traction control, it intentionally does not allow it. Then add a 4-wheel (all wheel) drive option on the Turbo or C4 (s)...and it becomes even harder to break the tires loos....Which is OK, because chirping tires aren't getting you forward! I will say that even with the 305 19's and all wheel drive, when I put the Sport Chrono button on and floor my 997 TT ( tiptronic), it will in fact break loose and make you dizzy :)

Enjoy the speed!

why would you want to again? Imho it can be done, but the wear on the clutch isnt worth it.
