Yes, stickier tires are the plan. Not trying to bounce off the rev limiter it's just that the tires don't stick and by the time you know it the RPM's are at 6-7k. I can floor it from a rolling start in 3rd gear and lose traction on these smooth paved roads. The weather in my part of Texas isn't helping either and being winter time it's been around 25-45 at night.
