Yeah could go that way.

As they will find it very hard to find a clutch plate to take all that power even a tripple plate will not hold that

Well, yeah, paddles, or tip-tronic, but I barely use that. If I want to overtake, launch or show some muppet in a corsa that his awful cherry-bomb exhaust has added zero horsepower you just plant your foot through the kick down and it'll drop a couple gears, rev match and launch.  :grin:

Yeah mine too. It's 7 speed, and a petrol V6 so whacks it up to about 4.5k rpm and probably 3rd at 40 or 2nd even at 30 and takes it to the redline upshifting as you go. You'll beat me in a drag race  :( , but I'll sound better.  :D :p

I love my little bike, 850cc triple that does 0-60 in 2.7 seconds  :glad: Don't think many cars will keep up off the line  :grin:

it is an I6 - I get comments like.. "it doesn't sound like a diesel" I think it does, until you boot it!
Got to change the red air charge pipe to the turbo from the intercooler, also one of the under body pannels has come loose, my mates bruv didn't put it back on properly!
Didn't get the car done anyway!

And yes... yours would sound a lot nicer!
