Take off lag

When ever I take off from a dead stop and I have a significant amount of throttle my car lags, then goes really hard. Which is annoying because then my foot bounces on the throttle causing me to accelerate and decelerate.

I think it may be due to the bama tune I’m using. However I can’t go back to stock permanently because I have shorter gears in the rear end. Do any of your automatic S197s do this?

From a dead stop when 'normal' driving?

From a dead stop when 'flooring' the gas pedal?

Do you happen to have AdvancedTrack turned off by any chance? Your traction control might still kick in if it detects any amount of spinning of the tires, it'll bog it a bit, then it'll just take off on you.

Yea I do have it on. I’ll try running with it off for the next couple of days.

is it the hesitation like when you shift into 2nd and between like 2500 and 3500 it lags, and then when you hit over that, all of a sudden there's normal power again?

Sounds awesome man! Let us know how it goes, be sure to have the brake pedal engaged while holding the traction control button for about 10 seconds or so. You'll see it turn off in your dash. From there you should be good to go!

I learned to be more careful with the pedal because of it to cause it not to happen. Usually it’s when I give it more throttle than I need but far from flooring it.

It seems to shift normally when cruising or already accelerating. Just take off it does it. But it does do something like that at take off.

Must be your tune. My throttle is very sensitive and peppy but I am running a MPT tune
