: : I test drove a 98 M3/4dr/5Sp with 36.5K miles on it. I felt that it revved up very fast. For instance from a stop at Red in the left turn lane when I started the car I almost touched the red line just when the turn was complete. I have driven other M3s and they didn't rev so fast. Even in other gears (2,3 and 4) I felt it revved pretty fast. What't going on here? Could it be that the gas pedal was more sensitive than other cars I drove? The owner confirms that the car is stock and she has had no problems with the car.

: The only thing I can I think of is that the car has a lightweight flywheel in it.
