I tell you what, that traction control power drop and the freakin' slow reponse from the accelerator really shit me to tears. So many times I've been caught the same way, going for a break in traffic only to crawl out!

It's almost like you have to sit there stalling up the converter before you go just to when you tell the car to move, it actually moves!

I've seen these little modules for sale that are supposed to sharpen up the accelerator response, anyone had real world experience with them?

A flick of the asc switch will "sharpen" throttle response for free and save you the tears (up to 80Km/h anyway)
as stated in the 2nd post of the thread.

That's another annoyance, you can't turn off ASC while the vehicle is in motion. First vehicle I've ever come across that.

This may have changed for the NS onwards though?

I still think using 4H is the answer to any issue regarding breaking traction and traction control issues. I haven't seen any real impact to running costs to say you can't do this all the time.

I agree with running the Paj in 4H al the time. There is no noticeable difference in fuel consumption.

2H = 650-700kms on average (highway+city 50/50)on a tankfull. (800kms if i drive like a sissy with 100% highway).
4H = 600-650kms on average (highway+city 50/50)on a tankfull

i have left the paj in 4H since the last 5,000kms so i can state the above fuel consumption figures confidently. Also i am running an MBC with custom tune2 from chip-it.

Well, as expected this had no effect whatsoever on throttle response, so my question stands.

No traction control is not dangerous you just need to drive based on the configuration of the vehicle against what you expect it to do.
