you getting mixed up with ASR and VDCIf you corner very hard with ASR on, and traction is lost ASR will cause a brake to be applied to restore balance. The brake that is applied will depend on which wheel loses traction. ASR when activated can be detected at lowish speeds when the road is slippery. You can feel a brake applied and the throttle retarded a little until traction is restored.
Back in 2007 I attended the Alfa experience at Thruxton when ASR was demonstrated and we all had a go with ASR on and off; there was a significant difference believe me! The test involved turning into a 2nd gear slow corner marked by cones and accelerating out, with ASR on you could feel the effect - ASR off = cones everywhere as the car understeered off course.
ASR is traction control to prevent wheel-spin on corners and on straight roads. An LSD distributes torque in accordance with the difference in rotational speed between inner and outer wheels and while it may reduce the activation of ASR (due to better road holding while cornering) it is not an alternative in the strictest sense.Hence the cones :lol: Yes I described VDC; ASR is a poor man's LSD. Correct?
Um, shouldn't you turn off the throttle nanny in the dry and leave it on when it's wet, or did I miss the irony there? :sI would suggest that you do NOT turn this off in the dry. DO turn it off in the wet and absolutely leather it mate - you'll soon find out what it does.
Sorry, but in the interest of correctness, ASR DOES apply brakes when required.Sheeet this is an old thread. But for the sake of "know" I'll reply.
So, ASR (Anti-Slip Regulation or Antriebsschlupfregelung) does not apply the brakes EVER, ....
