I have been experiencing an interesting problem since last Friday...every now and then my "ESP" light will flash at me and I get the sensation as I'm passing and changing lanes of a little floating.

I just had my MKV chipped with the GIAC software last week which added to the turbo back exhaust and the NeuSpeed P-Flow pretty much finishes my hp/torque mods.

The performance is amazing to say the least. It was incredably quick before the software. Plus, I do drive it pretty hard and have since I got it. I can easily get scratch in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and flirt w/4th >:D It seems like the DSG would be a decent option right now since I can only shift so fast ::)

Here is there web site: http://www.giacusa.com/

So it looks like a strut bar is in my future as soon as they finish designing one, it has been lowered w/HR springs and 18" wheels.

I'd be interested if any of you folks out there had any other ideas about how I can improve my traction.

The only thing I can think of is to get the stickiest tires you can buy. I have the APR software and have the same issue. Seems that about 200 HP is the limit for front wheel drive. One thing I notice with the APR software is that the power petters out in the upper RPM range. Do you think an exaust would help with this? One cool thing about the APR software is the ability to change back to the stock software. It is fun to change once in a while to remind myself how amazing the power gains are! Also this should be helpful when taking the car to the dealer for service. If you find anything that helps with the traction please fill me in. My email is: [email protected]
Thanks

The exhaust will not help with the power tapering off at the higher rpm's, my GIAC does the same. My guess is that they designed them that way, plus the 2x's I have red-lined my car, it pretty much shuts down at 7k rpm.
