Has anyone broke the tires free? Peel out? fish tail? Does the IS have the power to do this? Im just curious.. My first rear wheel!

Maybe I wasn't hard enough. I could get the traction control light shows up but I couldn't get a fish tail. Btw, the traction control is rather unobtrusive.

With traction control off I have swung the back end out on a turn. Had to do it while taking my neighbor for a ride to prove to him that it was RWD. :) Didn't even have to floor it...

i've been sqeeling the tires a lot more now for some reason, usually through semi aggressive turns, sometimes through really mild turns, it does get ppl to turn heads a second time though...but might be really bad for tire wear.

Yeah - you can turn the traction control off, and I was able to swing the tail around at the IS Tour event. Too bad the traction control defaults to "ON" every time you start the car.
