That's a good point as well, a sub 4.5 manual would be fantastic and would say a lot about the car overall. My most important time is what it clocks at from a roll, say 40-100, 10-60 mph, that's my keyIt would also need to beat every other hatches (well the powerful AWD ones) acceleration to be sub 4.5, since the RS is manual after all.
So it's unlikely to do anything directly relating to the gearbox unlike a DSG, how could it, but, it could do things such as set the dampers to optimum settings for traction and perhaps pre engage the clutch packs on the rear axle to lose some or all of the 300ms (I think that was the figure mentioned earlier in the year) engagement time.However it does have launch control - will that be using the manual gears?
That's going to be a pretty good jump in almost every aspect there mate :nice: I've never had a go in one but the fiesta ST's are supposed to be a fun car thoughI'm overall excited as I'll be moving from fiesta ST to this RS so the increase in bhp / torque will be interesting, it'll also be the most powerful car I've owned having only had a 1.2 Clio, 1.6 metal and my 1.6 ST
Before I bought my ST I had a 100 BHP Megane diesel, I know what you mean :laughing: :thumbsup:I'm overall excited as I'll be moving from fiesta ST to this RS so the increase in bhp / torque will be interesting, it'll also be the most powerful car I've owned having only had a 1.2 Clio, 1.6 metal and my 1.6 ST
They do keep a record and even disable the feature in some cars, like for some Audi's its 200 launches.Garage Queens remember to never use launch control. I've noticed that cars are sold with this feature incur a premium resale price if they can claim they have never been 'launched' . Apparently the cpu keeps a record of this as a read only. How funny!
