Hey Guys,

Have you ever managed to break traction in your R8 in the dry? For example:

Powersliding under acceleration out of a corner?
Drifting at speed around a corner?

If so, how **** hard were you pushing the thing?

I switched off ESP/ASR and the ass steps out a tiny bit in 1st gear around a corner but that's it. Very managable.

Just curious. I think the car is on rails.

I've managed to do it on a roundabout, but I think the tyres were cold. It was dry but cold, no ice.

I can do it on 1st->2nd gear changeup too... ;)

With ESP/ASR on in normal mode it can be done, but you have to try hard (or have a slippery/greasy road surface).

Yes, it feels like it is on rails, but everything has its limits......
