Your going to find that what ever tyre has the least traction will turn into liquid goo...

Open diff + 500E = One of Mercedes worst decisions..

Unplug one of the speed sensors near the front shock towers....that'll take it offline for nuttin'...plug it back in when your done foolin' around.

BTW, you'll be faster with it enabled.
