supposedly it has some effect on performance. i'd keep it on. i dont see many ppl burning out in our 2l or 2.4l cars.

$900 to get my car back!!! lol yea the tc sucks when you're racing. If you spin the tires, it slows the engine down. But peeling out in the car is horrible! So much wheel hop it actually hurts my ass!!! lol

it just slows your car down.. if shifting fast from 1st to 2nd you'll see the light come on and there will be about a 1 to 1 and half second pause if your on the gas before your car will accel at full rpms its a very noticable diffrence:)

I thought she was gonna wreck her p.o.s for sure. She had no driving swagger at all, jerkin all over the place. She's gonna die in that honda.

on kia's website, its not stock. its an add on. you probably just picked an sx that didnt have one lol oops :p like, i fucked up and picked an ex that didnt have a sunroof and i will regret that decision until i buy another car that has one :) but thats how we learn. now, installing a sunroof vs installing a rear view mirror is a different thing all together
