Torques are good

In my younger days, I had a Holden Torana which sported a 173Cu straight-6 engine.

Initially it urked me that this beast had only a 4-speed manual shifter ... until I realised that the massive torque produced by a straight-6 was sufficient to launch from the traffic lights in second and drop her straight into fourth, easily beating most of the Jap boy racer cars.
