    When pulling out at a juntion, give your car 6,500rpm and drop the clutch while in L plates.

    The looks you get are immense.

    That is all.

    Try that in my 1.4 litre Clio and if I'm lucky and I get a spin at all, I get a scraping noise - not even a screech.

    Almost any, if not every, production car made will spin if you get the revs up then mess with the clutch

    you certainly dont need 6500rpm to get a spin either. I used to drive a TD 306, never even tried, I then got a 1.6 petrol, and managed to accidentally spin it out of works car park lol. I was rather angry at the time and couldnt wait to get out of work. Engine must have only been running at 3k rpm though, max.

    In 4WD, this doesn't work.

    This is besides the fact I have far less revs to play with.

    Most underpowered cars can if you mess with the clutch like I said, a lot of automatics will do as usually they have a big engine = loads of power

    Objection! Diesels have more torque, so should, in theroy, be better at this. Discuss.

    Question for those of you more familiar with the law than I?
    Is it illegal to display L plates if not a learner?
    I know that it is certainly illegal to display them on the motorway.
