  • Power delivery question?

    Hi,

    I'm 400 miles in to my new VXR & have a question about the delivery of power. I find that sometimes in 2nd that if I put my foot down it won't pull as hard. The road conditions have not been fantastic, no yellow traction control light comes on. So is there a computer in the car that restricts power when it thinks you'll lose grip & does this without the traction control light coming on?


    Regards,

    Ade

    Do you mean for maybe for a couple of secinds it wont pull, and then all of a sudden the power comes at once? Cause that would b the turbo lag. Otherwise i don`t think i`ve had this problem. :?

      think it as a torque limiter thing on the car, hold the sports button in for 5 sec to turn the trac control off see how that is then be carfull in this weather try it on dry day if poss.

        Or maybe your just getting used to the power and you don`t notice it as much. In which case you need to get in contact with courtenay :wink: :P

          No it's not lag & when I drop it in to 3rd, you feel the pull. I just thought it may have a restrictor. I heard the M3 has one. I'm not getting this in any other gear...
