I get a few half chirps and I'm off. I have a lot of practice in this car lol.
Very interesting that your brakes can hold it on the line, that’s exactly what I do with my audi.
for my Audi I had to buy the biggest possible brakes that would fit 18” which were RS4 8 piston calipers (same setup as Lamborghini Gallardo) on 14.4” rotors and the car still wouldn’t hold on the line, then had to get the rears with stiffer calipers and 12.8” rotors, it still just barely holds when brake boosting, ask me about my 60’ , and 0-60 times…
