    Call me weird but I don't mind the occasional mild torque steer I get from my most aggressive tune. Let's me know I've got a whole lot more power than stock.;)

    i am seeing an interesting effect on long sweeping corners at part throttle just at/past the limit with adv vsa full on.
    it kind of does a skipping thing. go-start spinning-back off the power via vsa- power up again. etc.
    i don't know if it is the lsd playing all grabby or the adv vsa messing with wheel spin.

    any input? i think i got some video but dunno if it will show.

    If you datalog and you're not over 50% throttle input (TPS not TPSCMD) then it's not Advanced VSA intervening.

    ???? Yep, still waiting. In the 1/4 mile thread, it was posted that it made a difference but no concrete data. Just hearsay!

    i used advanced vsa in auto cross last weekend.
    i didn't like the feel of the launch with it full on but withh the traction control button turned off it did great. i was almost a full second faster with it compared to vsa full disabled with pedal dance.

    the button just delays vsa untill after you get going.

    unlike drag, in autocross i use the launch to help heat the tires so some spin is good.

    Don't mind me with the questions folks. I LOVE drag racing and bringing down my 1/4 mile times. Even more, I bracket race my cars a LOT in competition. This is my only FWD vehicle though. It's critical that I hit my 1/4 mile time target so I can win $$$ (for even more modifications :p ). Even a little tire slip can be the difference between winning or losing a race by 100th's of a second. So with that, this is huge for me.

    This will bring confidence in my car's consistency. And kick arse 60ft and 1/4 mile times of course.

    What?? If they don't give you a feature that will destroy the car, they shouldn't bother supporting it at all??
