Poor driving if you are having to floor it out of every junction,my 272 seems way fast enough ...
Just saying .......mines superb.
Definitely not poor driving , that’s really patronising .
Even if your car doesn’t have the lag , you would have to experience one that does .
Take a normal right turn or busy roundabout scenario.
- there is a gap in busy traffic , a reasonable gap but not huge. You have about 20 car lengths or 4 secs gap to pull out into.
Sounds safe .. you take foot off brake put foot down quickly and 1/3rd to 1/2 way down.
Nothing happens at all , car does not move ... nada for 1 whole second.
Then car moves out slowly at 2-5 mph , you push throttle further down.
Your throttle actions of the last 2 or do seconds are by no way relative to how long or fast the car has moved from taking foot off the brake .
And by this point the car approaching is getting close , they beep or flash you as in their eyes you have pulled out really slowly (like a nervous blind granny!)
Now by this time the car decides to engage clutch or fly by wire as you intended 3 send ago and all the power rushes to the wheels , putting you in a another but very different situation .
You suddenly catapult from a crawl to full speed , often getting under steer and over turning you have to correct and next having to brake because you now shot to 35mph in 2secs , catching up the gap of car that was a huge way ahead .
Basically , the car does not move when you put foot down from a standstill . Then the throttle fly by wire dies not transmit the actual revs you have given it relative to foot throttle position .
Further the clutch is feathering throttle in.
So when the system decides to act normal again you have a lot of power going down suddenly getting sent up wheels .
And if it’s a Quattro , there will be no wheel spin you will launch like a delayed launch control !
Ideally I’ve learnt to try and keep rolling into a junction even if it means leaving a big gap as you roll to junctions , which can **** off cars behind that they get dangerously close.
