    If you do the pedal dance that will eliminate the throttle pullback and leave Advanced VSA Ignition Pullback in place, if enabled. Turning on Cruise Main disables Advanced VSA Ignition Pullback, if you want to burn out etc.

    Doesn't pressing the cruise control button affect the throttle padding in TSP stg 1 tune as well?

    Cruise main negates the rev hang disable, putting rev hang back to factory operation. Padding is always in play.

    Got it! Just to be clear, advance VSA update will only be activated doing the pedal dance? I don't want to run it all the time with an aftermarket catted downpipe.

    No, Advanced VSA is active any time you have the settings enabled and set to do something unless you disable it with Cruise Main. See previous post for info regarding pedal dance.

    For the few of us dirty base models with a limited slip differential.

    Will it be ok to run the base model traction control when it comes out or would we need the si version because of the LSD?

    Yes, it is fine to run with or without LSD. It's all based on wheel speeds and takes into account fastest driven and slowest non-driven.

    In fact it seems like you have a model we have a beta with Advanced VSA for non-Si ready to go. Email us if you want a copy to try out!

    Ktuner let me try this out on my base model. Thank you Ktuner!

    I really like it. I can be much more aggressive with the throttle now from a stop. You can still whoops and give it to much throttle then end up with a burn out. Its just harder to get to that point.

    I feel like Im faster from a stop. I have no proof of that but it really feels like it :)

    The setting I used is Aggressive ignition/light throttle and my tires are 245 pilot super sports with light weight wheels.

    Great to know! Thanks for sharing! Didn't know you could still end up with a burn out though. A burn out reduction chance is better than none at all.

    Question: I've been tinkering around with the base maps and looking to build off one that has the most conservative spool/ramp under partial throttle. My three calibrations for the flash are as follows:
    • Factory/19.5
    • Factory/21.5
    • 19.5/23
    Knowing that I'm using the global factory-based quick adjustments, is there going to be a difference building off the 19/21.5 starter map vs. the factory starter map?

    I know I can get really specific using Boost by Gear, but wanted to start high level first. :)

    You're able to see and alter the boost targets for each mode in the tuning table list, just like you can see and alter the BBG targets, if you want to keep them tamer or have a better understanding of what they're targeting at specific RPM points.

    Leave turbo responsiveness at factory and ramp at factory, too, if you want to keep that to a minimum.

    • Do pedal dance
    • Do NOT turn on Cruise Main (It Disables Advanced VSA Ignition Pullback)
    • You are good to go.

      Got It!
    I did some changes today and loaded up the a new tune. The car is a Monster. No dragstrip open to test the changes though. I am going to need this feature asap.

    I'm an idiot. I didn't have things maxed in quick enabled section in Ktuner. It's looking like I was running no more than 15psi of boost all this year while testing stuff at the strip. A tuner just pointed this out to me. Was beta testing a piece in August last year and simply never took advantage of the new quick adjustments. :crazy::oops::rolleyes::doh:

    Good news is I have been running 14.1-14.5's in the 1/4 mile in my 'dog-slow' state, depending on how cool it was outside. I'd say things like with my uploaded tune today, my dash lights up like a xmas tree when flooring it from a dead stop, fighting for traction or that I now get some mild torque steer when flooring it from 75mph but it all doesn't mean squat. I need to test this current tune out at a track for data.

    And this Advanced VSA would be a huge help in my 60ft times.
