i got a sct x3 a while ago and i decide to try it out while going to pick up some pizza, so i uploaded the 87 octane (i had 87 in the tank) and drove fo about an hour. i get back to the brix and i smell a kinda burning smell coming from the rear. that leads me to think i am running ritch or lean (i think). if im wrong correct me please.

how many miles does your car have??

high milage and sporty driving can heat up the rear end a little more then normal... but i seriously doubt that was the problem... look to make sure nothing go stuck to the exhaust pipes... or caught any where that could burn or something like that
