    1st gear sideways!

    One of the things I love about the WS6 is how, when I am going about 20-25 MPH in first gear, I floor it and the car gets sideways (sometimes) or always breaks the rear tires loose, or (sometimes) fishtails. Especially nice when somebody in a POS is next to me and has the window open. I would like to see their reaction when Too Fast spins the wheels in a loud V8 roar and accelerates past them in a fury! Who else loves this instant, non turbo explosiveness?

    That one can't do it either.


    The T/A doesn't really kick out so much as it cooks the tires off in 1st.

    I like to get up the line quickly. Gives me the time to set the RPM's without worrying too much about the lights.

    Haha there were two guys in this brown RSX with loud exhaust in Jacksonville one day at the intersection with me (both of us waiting for light to turn to turn left) and they were revving at me and floored it when the light turned. I stomped it and went past them whipping it sideways (as was mentioned in the original post) and jerked it back straight out of the turn. I stayed below the speed limit and let them drive past - they were staring at me mouths partly open and eyes wide. Funny as crap!

    When i had my Mustang and i had girls in the car i used to ride 2nd gear out really long and keep tapping the gas, the car would jump and jerk so bad. The one girl hit her head on the back of my passenger seat. Hahaha it was great. But i really cant do that in the Trans Am cus its an A4. I miss driving stick so much..

    My 98 Formula is an A4 and it gets sideways at 70 mph with drag radials. It all depends on how much horsepower you put in front of the auto. lol
