Tyre Pressure????

Obviously being a front wheel drive car, i know we going to battle with traction. I have stock wheels and tires on my viggen (215/45/17). What pressure do u guys feel you get maximum traction with on a hard pull off?...Or do you think its best just to wheelspin through 1st gear as quickly as possible until you get traction in order to get going?

Wheelspin is never faster.

A lower tire pressure will theoretically give more straight-line grip, but you lose traction in the turns.
