Traction control

Oh no... one of my friends back in the UK has a BMW M Coupé and mentioned to me that he's ordering a traction control kit from Racelogic.

Of course... this has now got me thinking about how I'd fit this to my Ghibli... something else for me to lay awake at night thinking about! I do think their digital adjuster would look good fastened to the Ghibli's dash though!

The installation would be a bit trickier on my Ghibli though since it doesn't have ABS fitted, so I'd have to fit speed sensors on all the wheels. Wouldn't be too tricky though I think. It would certainly make driving the car in the wet much safer and the with the launch control I suspect that sub 5 second 0-100km/h sprints would be pretty attainable.
