It concerns me a little that you know that Please don't run these cars hard until they warm up, they will last a lot longer that way.Does it do it all the time? I know on my car it won't perform to max when the engine is cold.
Appreciate all of the responses. Def more of a cut in timing and or boost vs turbo lag. Strange that if I downshift into 2nd, acceleration is slower to redline through 2nd and then picks up when I shift into 3rd. Not seeing any traction control lights coming on. Will try in Race mode and report back.The Quad is a typical turbocharged car, and suffers some noticeable turbo lag. What you describe is typical if you mash the pedal when traveling at low speeds, to experience maximum acceleration in first you'll need to hold the brake from a stop and get the rpm's up prior to releasing the pedal, otherwise your going to get the response you describe. The reason you don't notice it as much in third is that the motor is already under load and producing more boost.
Appreciate it - just seems strange compared to any other car I’ve owened (mostly BMW and Porsche), this is the only one I’ve noticed it being so obvious. Is this normal for the Q.V.?Multiple things at hand here.
Max torque limitations in lower gears - less engine load - traction control ---> will result in lower boost pressure/less power.
