I am not sure if the 02 active handling is that different from the 01. I have not done any drag racing (at the track) or even a burnout. My understanding just comes from the marketing information. Sounds like shutting off active handling is the safest way to a interferrence-free launch.ZO SIC said:Well maybe they changed something in the '02 Comp mode. When I have it in Comp mode and do my burnout at the track, it kills the car nearly. It is like the traction control is on. Then I just turn it all off and I can do a burnout just fine.
