    Very gentle throttle inputs. The more powerful FWD cars are very tricky to drive on loose surfaces and require a lot of feathering the throttle to keep the wheels from spinning up.

    so it makes spinning front wheels? well I met with this issue mostly on tarmac, where they should have the biggest grip... mostly when braking into turn hardly, locking up the wheels - still ok, then after pulling the brakes with gentle throttle I am spinning in the turn

    Hmm, not sure about that actually. I haven't had much traction issues on tarmac, I run the civic R3 on tarmac rallies.
