Man O Man O man.
If I squint my eyes, shifting with the paddles with ASR off, makes me feel like I am behind Hakkinen's 2000 McLaren or Marcus Grönholm's Peugeot 206 WRC.
The shifts are now so direct and instant, without a hind of kickback.
I bow before the Selespeed masters, Mike D and Selespeed!!!!!!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
I also feel a little foolish as I have had the car long enough, to have know the ASR was the culprit.
Dave, Thanks for your "You aren't one for mechanical sympathy then Stef! "
The owners manual says that shifting above 6000RPM results in more "spirited" driving. Well Damn it.....who am I to argue with the almighty Alfa Owners manual?
Seriously though, thanks to all for responding.
147dude, time to see how we can hardwire the ASR to remain off when we start the car [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
ps: Dave, not having clutch control on the selespeed means we really don't have a chance to blip the throttle. The system does that for us when we downshift, but that's all.
