@Shotgun Chuck @atv_123 @Harkin Labs Gaming In the driving modes thread there was discussion about lag in throttle from a standstill. I figured that discussion is more relevant in this thread than in the driving modes thread. Today Engineering Explained posted this video: In it he explains how modern engines (especially low displacement turbo engines) can have issues with "super knock", which can occur under low RPM high load situations. So if you try and pull away hard from a low rpm, you would be creating the ideal situation for super knock to occur, so it would make sense that the engine management would provide less throttle input to the engine until the revs build to prevent that from happening. Since exploding engines is bad for business, especially within warranty. I of course don't know if this is actually the reason for the hesitation, but figured its possible that it might be a relevant factor. In the video he states that the reasons for super knock are somewhat unknown, but that a new engine oil standard has been released to reduce the likelihood of it happening. Not that new engine oil will remap your ECU of course, even if that is the reason the hesitation was added.
