Not exactly. By starting out in 3rd gear the total torque sent to the drive wheel is lower which means it's less likely to spin uselessly in the snow. It does mean the car will accelerate more slowly. But a slow acceleration on the snow is better than no acceleration if the wheel spins--the car just sits there.quote:
