Spinning your tires with x-drive is nearly impossible from what I understand. But I cannot speak from experience as I don't have it.

I've also learned recently that the 2013s with the Tu engine have a taller final drive. 2.81 versus 3.23:1. This, plus the added weight of the GC and x-drive makes it harder to spin - although this is not necessarily a bad thing.
Aha, got it! I will give it a try, thank you!
