    Cool Just Wondering

    I have a 6 speed with the stock 3.42s. Will the 6 speed break um loose from, say a 10 mph roll. My old 2000 A4 would but my M6 wont. Does this have something to do with the torque converter in the A4. ( the A4 had a stock converter ) I was reading that the 02 motors have more low end than the 98-00 motors.

    shouldent have any problems breaking traction at a 10mph roll. When mine was stock I could break in almost every gear.

    How many miles?

    Maybe the clutch slips a bit, therefore not breaking the tires loose.
    It all depends on tire, driver, clutch, etc...

    My car makes a decent amount of power and tends to hold 1st gear pretty good. I would rather go....
    Now, if I want it to break loose, it will.

    Could be the clutch slips a little bit.
