335 Owners: How often do you WOT?

The few times I go WOT from 20-30mph , I sometimes underestimate the effect of low end torque

Not so much at higher speeds...

How about you?

Most of the time, but only at low speeds. Can't resist that torque.

As chicken-shxt as it sounds, the car is so strong that I really don't feel comfortable at WOT for more than a few seconds on public roads.

Usually it's pull out, get out of first gear asap, go WOT, shift to 3rd, lift and nervously look around for policia.

Many times every day. If I wasn't going to use the power I would have bought a 328 :-)

That sums it up for me too except I start out in second. Most of the roads I drive on daily only have 35-45mph speed limit so it only takes a couple seconds of WOT an im speeding. Sure is fun though

Honestly I rarely need to, every now and then I open her up if I have some empty road, but that isn't very often in SoCal.

you know, I almost agree with you on this one.

From most of the responses so far though, it shows that the high-end power from the car is hardly used, but it sure does feel good that we have a mid-size hammer under the hood, especially for highway speeds.

So the question begs, why is one of the top 3 (non-cosmetic) mods a tune?

Enough that I can still justify choosing the 335. As mentioned above, I don't understand why one would choose an upgraded engine and then never use it.

I agree, but like 90% of the members in here thinks they have a race car and love to hone their inner mario andretti on public roads while thinking ultimate driving machine...must do.

I've seen too many of those at stoplights. I agree, it's anything but flattering.

I think there's a fine line. Ricer revving, making loud noise to get attention, and making an ass of yourself is one thing. A spirited departure on the other hand...

Indeed. I'm in need of new tires as well. I'm guessing I have 35% tread left. I'm planning to toss them at the end of the season and buy new ones next year. I guess that's a side effect of WOTing lol
