Two Step aka Anti-Lag, never seen the reason for it on a NA car since theres no turbo to spool up.

2-step and anti-lag are 2 diff things

2 step your in gear , throttle to the floor and hitting a rev limiter when you let off the clutch (throttle still floored) and hit X MPH the rev lim is turned off and away you go

AL or Anti-Lag is when you have a turbo and your shifting gears and say going from 3rd to 4th when you let off the throttle in most cars you retard the timing and go rich , with AL you go very high on the timing and lean the engine which creates heat and keeps the turbo spooled at a higher rpm , turbo spools by 2 things heat and psi , the heat from the split second higher timing and less fuel keeps it spooled better

I have a '12 SE Hatch with the sports package with the DT. I noticed some huge discrepancies in 0-60 times among testers; with the fastest 0-60 being 7.5 sec, slowest just under 9 seconds with a similarly equipped car? Im pretty sure the 7.5 was achieved in S mode, traction control off and doing the brake on, revs to 4k release the brake step back the gas (to avoid wheel spin) launch. It would be tough to time a start using this technique but may work good for Auto-X when you trip a timer.

The car handles much better with traction control "off" however its not all the way off, but more like a sport mode that allows slightly more wheel spin. My opinion anyway.

I think that the car is faster, even in a streight line with traction control off.

I'm not sure if it's been mentioned or not, but 1) does this tune change the DCT parameters as well, or just engine, and 2) will this tune be able to be used in conjunction with a DCT tune from another company?

Tom has stated he's been playing around with the DCT tuning on his own car.

You get an engine tune and the DCT , 5 speed MK3 would get the engine tune

No my Custom Tuning would not work in conjunction with another company's DCT tune

There will always be huge discrepancies when using a watch or stop watch , just thinking about hitting the timing takes .5-1 second then you have , winds , temps , road conditions , traction , driver etc etc etc

OK, thanks. It doesn't need to be compatible if yours already does it ;)

I've heard of similar numbers and had a similar experience with the "traction control" as well. Sometimes depending on the road surface I'm faster with it off but if the pavement is smooth forget about it! I leave it on.

Any ideas what the best 0-60 timer is for the money? I have been just using my phone video to study each frame but I know the speedo is not accurate. Plus, the acceleration apps on my iphone aren't all that accurate either I think...

Thoughts?
