Yup! We have peak torque at 1600 RPM so if you just mash the throttle the tires will lose traction quickly.I learned this first hand the first couple of pulls with TCS off and then on. I definitely bury my foot into the firewall since I’m so used to driving low Hp/ Tq cars. I am very guilty of that . I guess I better practice restraint and learn how to modulate.
Pretend if there's strings going from your steering wheel to your throttle pedal. As you turn the wheel, it pulls the throttle pedal up. As you straighten out, the pedal goes down.
A tire has a certain grip limit. Viewed from above it looks like a circle with a cross in it. Kinda like a compass.. Forwards is acceleration, backwards braking, left and right turning. Of you ask a 100% grip for acceleration, any sideways movement loses traction. If you steer full left and ask 100% grip, any throttle or braking input loses traction. If you ask 50% steering grip, you have 50% left to accelerate or decelerate. You steer or accelerate/decelerate past 50%, you lose traction. That's why as you reduce steering input, you can accelerate harder, and vice versa.
That's what makes the best racing drivers. They can "feel" the limit of the tires and coordinate inputs on the edge of the grip levels.
