I got that sense, in the seat of the pants.
Are the torque and hp specs in the manual for the 10v or the 20v?

When I try to get the car rolling by gently engaging the clutch at lower
revs, there is a faint 'clunk' transmitted thru the chassis. This doesn't
happen if I'm more vigorous with the throttle. 
Am I actually hurting it trying to be nice?
