Whats The Best Way To Start ?

I was just woundering after having a bit of a debate with other drivers who claim to have easily lost the TS in their hot hatches at the lights, NOT wanting to sound like a boy racer but we all like a bit of fun or we would have a standard model. But what is the best way to pull away from the lights in the Corolla TS.

Thanks

Same as most cars - Select first gear, balance the gas & clutch, release handbrake, ease up on the clutch to move, accelerate through the gears to the desired speed.

:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

Or just let the w :censor: s next to you speed off and look like even bigger w :censor: s than they seemed. No need to drag to prove your car. :thumbsup:

I noticed that this car is really sensible to the clutch and gas. I think its hard to get a perfect start. Either you go to slow on the clutch and then you just spin on the clutch some before it gets a grip.... otherwise you release the clutch to soon and not enough on the throttle and the engine will die or you jump off. I got a Corolla G6R before my CTS and it wasn´t this difficult to drive smoothly i think... perhaps it is beacuse of the healthy engine under the bonnet on my CTS? :D

hmm, mabye i got a little off topic....

i didnt care of the run in period. According to the manual it says its not necessary but i save fuel in future if i run nicely first... but what the f*ck...

At my old work we got to companycars, exactly the same model and everything. One was having a run in period and the other didnt. Guess what car was the quickest and most healthy?? Not the run-in-period-car... it was a obvious difference

Personal opinion.... The car is not going to last as long as the engine or the owner...

Over the years the car would theoretically last you are likely to either crash it or sell it (hopefully the latter) so why bother, I know it's cruel but the problem is not going to be yours in the end so enjoy it while you can....

Why do you think it's so important to check a second car out when you buy it !!!

You are right! But for that matter i can still be careful to my baby by servicing it regurarly, not rev. the engine over 3500 rpm´s when its not warmed up etc.

My old G6R got NO errors what so ever when i sold it at 150000 km and it looked like brand new.

Cars I've had in the past were either company cars or cheap things that were falling apart as inbetween's....

My MR2's will never be sold, I have the Mk2 as a daily drive, and a Mk1 which will be ready for next years track season they'll be with me till either of us die or they're stolen....

Plus as they're second hand have been run in already :D
