You were just leaving Cars & Coffee, weren't you? Or was this you? :lol: This is why I love the Stability/Traction control in my Chevy SS. It doesn't let the back end get any out of sorts unless I set it to allow it. --kC You are very perceptive LOL. Thankfully ... that is not me above. I was pulling out of a C&C. My car was sitting in the sun. Tires were hot. Maybe a little Armour-All on the tires. Car skidded a little. But that was enough. They have a zero tolerance policy and I agree that it can get dangerous for the people standing around. I learned my lesson. Um hot tires=better traction.... Not that the sun is going to drastically warm them anyway but nonetheless would only improve your traction. Still sucks you got caught by an officer having a bad day. I've heard stories of a few guys getting cited for "aggressive driving" or "excessive acceleration" because their diesels blew a little smoke. Fortunately I live in a diesel friendly area but it's kinda wild you can get tickets for such subjective things.
