Stock (A/S p7's) or summer MPSS is the same squat from the dig when you have a tune. That right foot control is the key though.

True. I don't mind negotiating wheel spin. The violent hopping just takes the fun out of it.

yea ive even have had some traction issues where I do a 500ft burnout and my car thinks its going 100MPH (because wheels just keep spinning)...... dont use stock launch control with anything above 230HP your car will go crazy.

Even with feathering the launch these things have mounds of tq tuned, i have no idea how anybody pulls under a 2.00 60'ft on stock tires

I want to go up to the track again this year but I feel like something will snap, any axle upgrades for us? Or just stiffen the suspension

Your not going to snap an axle just from torque and drag radials or slicks, especially with a dsg. Unless you are talking about wheel hop- that could certainly break something sooner or later.
