Is this because the car sat for the recall 2 weeks and the tires weren't 100%?

Or maybe the power is more after the 1200 maintenance?

I'm just gonna be more careful now I almost crashed...
Could be partly the tires. Really no added power after 1200, just more to play with. What do you have programed into your M1 setting? All the electronic helpers (DSC) off? Probably not advisable on the street.
