    Sometimes when I accelerate and not pay attention to how much force I press my gas pedal, I cause my tires to chirp and lose traction for a second. Do you guys ever wish they would make these Tacomas with less torque so it would get better traction from a stop?

    also ifyou want to take off fast from a stop go get a car.
    edit: and that car needs AWD and traction control.

    FIRST: Is this a joke? Short of breaking a motor mount, transmission, rear end or other component, is there such a thing as too much torque?

    SECOND: No, I've never wished that and don't have that problem.

    THIRD: Less torque does not equal better traction.

    Lol from time to time I wish I could afford the super charger for more torque and horse power. So you can put me in the no column I love spinning them every once in a while.

    Youre kidding, right? less torque? sounds like you need to be lighter on the skinny pedal... or bigger tires like mentioned above...simple solution :)

    I had the chirping tires problem until i replaced the Rugged Fails with real tires. Now the torque is actually applied to propel the truck forward.
