At least with the auto you haven't got to worry about the clutch exploding as well.


i know its not quite as simple as that mate:rocks: im just stating an average

i know of several 400-500bhp sierra and escort cosworths which break driveshafts diffs etc when launching hard, but this is what cosworths do best being 4wd rally machines

you can get uprated components to avoid such breakages

im also sure that when bmw test there cars 0-60 figures they dont kust pull away from idle, as this wont get the best time, i am just wondering the best way to do this in an auto
