Re: 147 acceleration
YEah that's what I've found is the only hing to do in my 1.6, it's exactly the same, if you dump the clutch just a little too much all power dies and you crawl off the line. Luckily the car revs up quickly in neutral so I've found you can get a quick(ish) start by revving up to about 4K then progressively letting the clutch out (even if it slips a touch).
Good to know the remaps sort this out though, bloody drive by wire systems, load of old toot.
