Dead pedal after shifting (stick)

Leaving work yesterday I got to stop sign took off got to about 5k rpm and shifted into 2nd once I hit the gas pedal nothing happened for a half second or so so I let off the gas and got back on it an it was fine tried a few things to see if it would happen again but nothing .. Anyone have any ideas

It is the traction control kicking in.If a wheel slips for a spot of water or whatever and the TC kicks in. you got what it does. Annoying as Hell IMO.
The one big time i got it pulling away from a stoplight (and yes I was trying to go a bit fast..) hit a small patch of water, and KABOOM TC kicks in and no go. NO response to the gas pedal forabout two real seconds. And two seconds in that situation was a LONG time.
Trying to make a left turn and it hits you would be SCREWED.
I have no idea who designed the traction control.. but they are goddamn idiots.

+1. This wouldn't bother me nearly as much as it does if TC was easier to turn off.

It's not hard at all, you go into the setting on the dial dash display, go into driving assist, and you should see 'traction control' and a box with a tick instead. Go down to it and press 'ok' until the tick isn't in the box =) I would right it in better words, but I'm a right hand side driver (uk) ;)

Regards,
Vince
