    Default 3.2 V6 torque

    Hi guys, got a question about the torque in the 3.2 engine. I have tried twice now to go flat out off the line, once at the dartford tunnel, once off a round about. All I get is torque and wheel spin, is this the case across the board. When I did it first time at the tunnel, it felt like I had done the clutch.

    Just to check I put it in 5th on real low revs and give it some, it picked up ok, no raised rev counter, as I would see if the clutch was gone. Do you just have to wait for traction before unleashing the fury?

    when you have that much power its all about throttle control, learning the limit and decent tyres lol, mine will spin up in 2nd if im aggressive with it and sometimes in 3rd if its a bit cold or greasy and im coming off a roundabout or something but then thats cos i have crap tyres

    I find you can either let the traction control do it's thing or balance the throttle to eliminate/reduce wheelspin as you accelerate. With practice you can actually react faster than the traction control.

    Just bear in mind the 3.2 CAN exceed 70 in 2nd gear..... it's stunningly easy to be going far faster than you think before you realise it.
