Automatic Driving Question

This is going to sound like a ridiculous question, but please bear with me. For you guys who drive auto 'Stangs, do you usually mash the pedal when starting off the line during normal street driving? Or do you start off at partial throttle?

In both my auto Mustangs I just ease into the gas like I do when I drive a stick. It's just force of habit for me. Now if I'm on the track, its TCS off, pedal buried in the carpet.

I leave all traction control on and mash it. Now that I am tuned I'm breaking loose top of first into second on stock tires so guess what's about to be ordered?

Leave all the traction controls on and ease into the pedal. Makes for a smoother take off. But if you want to have fun, turn off the tcs, hold the brake down till you hit 1500 rpm, release the brake and punch that that gas pedal down to make those tires squeal. LOL

In all fairness I had given it to him for his 18th birthday, and it wasn't entirely his fault... When they investigated the crash they found that the throttlebody was jammed wide open.

He has a 1" scar above his lip from where upon hitting the steering wheel he bit through his lip. The police don't believe he was wearing his seat belt... We found it cut off in the debris of the car. He was going down a hill. His brake rotors had cracks from the heat of trying to stop the car.

Am I missing something here? Why would I mash the throttle every time I start from a stop? That isn't how an automatic is meant to be handled. Plus with the 3.7s lag, I find doing so a little scary. :p

Every time I can, sure. Which isn't normally since I live in the city and doing so would park me right up the big ugly rear end of a Prius. Lol

But even when I gun it I don't stomp on the throttle, a quick, steady progression will yield the best results!

I'm reading this and it's just getting more and more like a BBC Top Gear "how hard can it be" cheap car challenge. "On tonight's episode of Top Gear, we're given 3000 pounds and told to buy a cheap sports car, told to make it a spy car, and then set a series of challenges".

They're talking about Spy Hunter, and installing oil slicks, and axle spinners, and it reminds me of a Top Gear challenge.

In case you don't know what Top Gear is, it's a British show about cars that's been on since the 80s. The revived series started in the early 2000s, and the producers of the show will give them so much money, tell them to buy a certain type of car, sometimes modify it, and then set them a series of challenges. It's shown in the USA on BBC America.

History Channel shows an American version, but it really sucks compared to the British one... the challenges are dull, the hosts are all unbelievably annoying, and they try to make the show too serious.

Yes, they've driven the Veyron, 3 times. First time they raced the Veyron vs a plane from Italy to London, second time James May (capt slow) maxed it out, 3rd time they drag raced it vs a euro typhoon fighter jet.

And they aren't the only ones. I've done 180mph in a Veyron. It kills me knowing I will never do that again.

Yellow, thats the same here. The owner was in the passenger seat and he said, remember if you wreck you'd better be dead. I figured 180 was fast enough. lol
