    How common is this? My Celica is the only car I've encountered with this problem. It's a 2.2 5 speed /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Every front wheel drive car I've ever driven does it to some extent. I must say that my CRX is the king of horrible front drive manners (hop, and torque steer).

    One more reason why imports, FWD, and racing don't go together. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] The big problem is I bet if you play the sound of a real muscle car launching and solidly spinning off the line, then you played the import wheel hopping off the line a ricer would still say the import sounded better. They probably feel its cool to wheelhop. Don't attack me I know not all ricers are total morons but the majority are.

    I'm not attacking anyone at all. All I mean is that is one more reason ricers suck for race cars. And I would much rather hear a 540ci blown big block at about 7,000RPM's melting the tires off the rims than a cute little 100ci 4 banger going chirp chirp chirp like a fawkin' parakeit. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif The best sound though is hearing just a little bark and then a screaming big block getting quiter and quiter. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
