Loss of traction

Post by JS1988 » Thu Dec 13, 2018 8:59 pm

Hi

Anybody in the T3 noticed the car losing traction very easily?

Had it a week now and a few times the car has momentarily lost traction over something as little as going over a grid.

Worries me for the winter to be honest.

Yes.
At first I thought it was because they were brand new tyres and wider than I was used to but it's still happening 3 months later.
I've just learned that I need to slow down on the stretches/parts of road that it normally happens on.
It does worry me about what's going to happen when the roads are icy :?

Have you got the FWD version? I’ve noticed I’ve got to pull away quite gently on mine otherwise the wheels spin up easily. A cattle grid (assuming that’s what you mean) will have relatively low traction, so might be why it happens here?
