Flywheel?

Lovely article, never know what I'll find in Motor Age ^W^W The Register.

I'd understood a flywheel was needed to compensate for internal combustion engine's low torque. Do these massive beasts really need flywheels? It would seem they have enough torque to avoid stalling when the clutch is engaged in first gear!
