1992 trofeo is on a distinguished road
Default hm..

never really tryed with my 92, Ive done some decent damage to my rock/tar drive way with my 87 toro. I have about 100ft driveway I think I ripped up half of it, But then again its only rock/tar.
:( I dont have traction control. or touring/sport rear susp (I only have load leveling)

I think my new toro is geared to high to have any power from a stand still I have mean accel at 30km but first gears just to big

Not necessarily. In the SSEi if we nail the gas from a stop it will spin the tires up to 20+, and the GTP will spin up to ~50. The GTP will spin the tires up to 20 with the traction control on. Really, if you nail the gas hard enough from a stop, even in a stock n/a 3800 you can leave some pretty decent marks. It doesn't take gravel, although I don't doubt that there was any around seeing it was around the construction.
I was just speaking from experience with my SE, even if I accelerate hard it I don't get that mean of a squeel. But I've never stomped it before from a dead stop, I should try it sometime, see what it can do.

I can do it no sweat...2500-3000 rpm from a dead stop...break traction no problem at all.

I plan on investing into some new tires for the fronts (will move to the rear in the winter)

You should see me go in the rain...Drifter knows...lol
