My best so far is a 1.8 on Michelin all seasons with AWD and 6MT barking all 4 on the launch at full throttle and about 5000rpm (floor at the first yellow and drop the clutch on the 3rd yellow). But as I've added power since then the clutch has gotten weaker so I can't do that anymore until I replace the clutch.
