    This is an EXCELLENT test for this feature. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!! I was trying to mimick this at the track to better my 60ft times by adjusting tire pressure. This will make things near flawless in my book and I should see a measurable improvement in my 60ft times. I CAN'T WAIT!!! Friggin' heart beating out of my chest just reading these testing posts.

    I need this asap for Non-Si, CVT. My tires are smallest diameter I can get and wheel/tire combo is super light so I can get wheel spin with full tire pressure. Please get this for Non-Si. I don't care if I'd have to pay for it custom only if it doesn't become available.

    @KTuner You know I will. :) Looking forward to some track time AFTER possibly getting this upgrade. Whatever it takes. :headbang:

    Well, I did get ahead of myself in my excitement in the previous post and made an assumption. Not like me!

    Has anyone tested this at a dragstrip to see if their 60ft time has improved? Will anyone be testing this? Really interested in this feature for this purpose, as well as in normal driving. Just looking for something measurable. Data! Thanks!

    An Accord 2.0T hit the track already and dropped his 60' time. I'm sure more data will be available with this being out for Sis as well. Non-Si will be released once thoroughly tested, including CVT testing.

    Thank you for your response. Looking forward to terrorizing some Type Rs and Si's on street tires. I will be glued to this thread. Thanks!

    The best feature of the advanced vsa is the 1st to 2nd shift! No more power drop on a quick shift that breaks the tires loose. Boost stays up vs being cut and having to recover. I haven’t tried a launch yet. I have mine on the minimum setting and it makes an amazing difference.

    Yeah... I put ~400 miles on the Odyssey in a day and a half... driving a couple hours away and then doing bouncing around to appease everyone. I got any of my internetting in when I got to be a passenger. Now I need a weekend from the weekend.

    For real, doing everything that kiddo and Nana want to do is exhausting, like Nana will never say no to the kid!!! But they both had a blast and that's really all that matters.

    @KTuner
    i was wondering if you have any data on how long it takes avanced vsa to settle down after traction first breaks.
    i am looking for how useful this will be in autocross.
    in a couple weeks i can do side by side runs with pedal dance and advanced vsa but i am not consistent enough to properly compare.

    It's instant to kick in and instant to kick out, based on wheel speed differences or lack thereof.
