No biggy really, but I've always found my engine to be relatively slow to rev when, for example, pulling out quickly from a junction. Simple physics dictates that normally, the fewer the cylinders, the easier it is to get the engine to rev...

For a 3-cylinder, I find it pretty disappointing. Or is there a fault on my car?

Thanks for your replies and the link to the video - my problem isn't nearly as bad as that, and it has nothing to do with the clutch. I'm talking about the inertia in the engine. It's not bad exactly, just a bit surprising for such a titchy 3-cyl that it doesn't rev to, say, 4000rpm in about 1/2 a second...
