They are slow spoolers, but problems (like vacuum leaks) make it MUCH worse.

Try this: When stopped, push the brake and the gas til you see some ~ 0 vacuum/boost (you have a gauge right?), then let go - NO LAG! If this spins the tires, work on getting more traction. I can cut a 2.1x 60' time on an open rear and street tires. Not bad for a slow car. :)
