    Default WTF ?? Extra HP from Cruise Control ??

    hm ... maybe i have some electrical problem , or this is true ??? WTFFFF ??

    i found how to get extra boost with this combination:

    let's say you are in 2nd gear, or 3rd @ around 2000 rpm
    put gas pedal "to floor" to get accelerate and push and hold CruiseControl button :

    and release gas pedal (You must hold CC button)



    WELL in short steps :
    1.) second gear, @ around 2000 rpm
    2.) put gas pedal "to floor"
    3.) push and hold CruiseControl button
    4.) release gas pedal

    can some1 try this ?

    Are you sure its not because at 2000rpm the engine is on max torque so you feel it more?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    It might be the illusion of being pushed back in your seat without the corresponding foot movement. Do you get the same affect when you tap the accelerate cc button?

    Effectively all you are doing while you are pressing the cruise button is increasing the CC set speed. No wonder it is going to lurch forward once you remove your foot from the loud pedal.
