it says low traction...so it does something.....im going to look into the standard vbc upgrade myself....

I agree it's better than the standard '11 but my modded '11 was quicker still.

I think it has been designed with both conditions in mind...

On low traction it should generate more mechanical grip, whilst in high traction it could help to smooth the car out and reduce traction roll.

Similarly often we use softer springs in low traction to generate more mechanical grip and in high traction to make the car easier to drive and prevent traction roll.

All I know is, I was faster with my home modded '11 than i am with the '12! I know not many people will admit it, but the '12 was not the step forward that many were hoping for!
After driving the 12' the first time at my club, it was easy to drive and incredibly stable. I preffered the feeling I got from the 11' as it was prone to slide the rear end out, which in turn made the car better to get round, especially on throttle. Now i've had a good oppurtunity of setting the 12' up to my liking after 2-3 months with it, the 12' is always 2 tenths a lap quicker than the 11', which is a massive improvment.

I've tried the 11' with my favourite setups, different chassis and even when considering i've had more time with the 11', the 12' is simply quicker round the lap and so stable, even with setting changes that have given the car a lot more steering. If I set the 11' the same way, the car would be on the verge of spinning out. I've got two guys in particular at my club who I regard as 'aliens' and i'm now doing their laptimes, when I used to be 2 tenths off of them on a good day. Trust me on this, the Xray 12' is an incredible car.
