Isn't it torque that will cause wheel spin, not power? :unsure:
But adding power usually adds torque so whilst we're only discussing the power increase, it's assumed the torque would increase as well.

Agreed.
Stock torque for my V6S is 461 Nm but the tune has raised that to 598 Nm so line ball with the old XFS 3.0 D and as we know that car can lose the rear end fairly easily.

IF you want a clear idea of where your R-S map has you here's yesterday's 6th gear pull (hits the speed limiter before peak power, in 4th it peaked at 6000RPM) so the factory map and power claims are pretty bang on.
That Torque plateau leads to such a linear power delivery <3

Nice! I see you hit 180mph. Good thing I've replicated the XFR-S top speed too ;) 155->186mph

Never had that problem. Even on a track. Only time I’ve ever seen issues with traction was in the wet or at Santa Pod (but that was a standing start). Never broke traction once rolling (except in the wet).

Didn't your back end pop out unexpectedly once in public a couple of years ago?! Wasn't there a video of it?!

Is that the black saloon that was leaving a meet?
