VDC / ASR and performance

Evening all,

I occasionally lament the performance of the 3.2 v6 and have noticed an occasional hesitation when planting my right foot toward the top of the rev range.

To cut a long story short I have been driving with ASR switched off for the past couple of weeks, not sure if this is placebo effect or not but the car certainly feels quicker and more responsive, and there is no hesitation now (I suspect the hesitation was actually the traction control cutting in too quick).

I have spun the wheels a couple of times, nothing a swift up change can't sort and I do leave VDC on as I know how good it can be in an high speed evasive manouvre

If you haven't already, try it and see what you think

I took my 2.4jtdm out for a spirited drive and it felt slightly more nimble but as it was wet out it was spinning quite easily.
