Omega reving
« on: 12 March 2018, 17:21:19 »

I'm sure when I used to be in sport or foot fully down before changing gear it would hit the red line.

I noticed the other day when giving it a good dose full .. The change to second and to third it didn't hit the red line was about 500rpm before when it changed

Any idea?

Have you been driving like Daisy of late? I am given to understamd that it "learns" your driving style and adjusts accordingly.
Perhaps more frequent use of the heavy right foot might alter its behaviour?

The 3.2 TCM lacks the improvements made to the 3.0 TCM, so acts far less intelligently.

I bet if you keep it in sport, and bury the throttle, it will change up at redline.  Without sport, it rarely does.


Sadly, the earlier, superior, GS8.20 TCM from the 3.0 does not fit the 3.2 :(
