May I ask why?
of course, but why would you want to go backwards like that?
yea, what's the reason mate?
Having got both myself, the DBW car isn't as smooth, and the electronic throttle isn't as good I'll admit, but the rest of the system is miles ahead of the pre historic ME3.8 ECU in the cable throttle car. ME7 is a huge step forward in terms of refinement and tunability
i HATE electric throttle, no matter what people say, they are no as responsive, more to go wrong.. and i like good ole mechanic feel and squeak from under the bonnet! lol
Popping on demand with cable too
The biggest problem is that as Nick has stated the older cable throttle capable ECUs are pretty stupid and not as tunable and adjustable as their DBW counterparts. There are measures that can be taken to improve throttle responsiveness and feel iirc.
I have DBC and sooooooo wish i had DBW
Tiny tap of the Pedal on overrun? Mine does it every time!
thats a benifit too! lol wont it do it on electric throttle? lol
they are responsive - maybe your tune is not so good or there's another issue
same on dbw
its standard at the minute, i had my old cars mapped and you can change the responsiveness of the pedal "drivers wish"
however, i still prefer cable! old school ftw!
lol - old skool indeed
Got to love cruise control though.
No problems with throttle response here
surley you can change the response of the dbw as you can with the dbc.
i would prefer to have dbw less messing less to go wrong also smoother feel on throttle, and more responsive as you not relaying on a cable just electric resonse.
i cant explain it, lol there is a definate difference between the 2.
guess i gotta stick electric though.
o well, worth a ****! cheers guys..
I do miss being able to rev the engine while under the bonnet
