Thats what I thought as well, and its good to know
Didnt want the long box on this car, or the very short one.
At a junction near my house, some nights when I was feeling a bit naughty, I would turn right from the traffic lights in first gear, clutch it and release it and it would burn all 1st gear while bearly moving.
Then immediately into 2nd which it would half burn as well, and as soon as the wheels were straight again, it would shoooooot ahead
Point is, that was with the 1.5 105bhp engine.
With the engine thats going on now, I wouldnt want it to sit in a cloud of smoke.
So if it was the shortest diff of the three, I would want to make some changes to the middle one, so that it would actually move as well, apart from the noise and smoke
Does this make any sence to you ? Or am I a prooven mental case once again ?
