What does everyone think about the Drive by wire throttle for FG2? I know that most sports cars today have them, like the Sti and M3. But I still have a difficult time with the DBW. For instance, when driving in 4th/5th gear at 35 mph (the max speed limit on normal streets over here), I usually let go of the gas pedal instead of braking when someone in front of me turns or brakes or whatever. As soon as I let go of the gas the car jerks, and then the engine starts to wind down. In traffic, the jerking behavior is very annoying. I usually have to press the clutch a little bit when letting go of the gas to avoid that jerking motion. I'm wondering how that will affect AutoX races, in which letting go of the gas is better than fully braking at turns. Does anyone have the same problem with their Si? I realize there will be programming solutions in the future but until then, any suggestions on what I can do?
It's WAY better than the TBW on the X-Runner I just traded in.
