I'd try starting vibration first. Then maybe XDS. I left XDS alone.

At least try one at a time. Not both at once.

It's not the torque limiter that your deactivating, it's the adaptation right above it that says starting vibration reduction. Should pop up with a drop down menu and give you a choice between maximum strong normal and deactivated.

Well ya. With stock tires, suspension etc this will give more wheel hop if you just floor it from a stop. You can control things with the throttle, of course.

The benefit of this change is that torque is not cut in the first 2 gears. You have more control.

Buy insert for the dogbone mount to lessen the wheel hop.

Thank you for that! .

Short story, do this mod! It really helps and truly truly deactivates that damn pesky traction control for good! 1st and 2nd feel even more awake and responsive under throttle. The word responsive doesnt really capture what I mean, but its close lol...Maybe it just has more feel i suppose. I don't feel the computer getting in the way AT ALL.

Bye bye nannies. bye bye.

Also, for what its worth...
Using obdeleven I turned traction control off, then made sure it was off when I went back into the control module>brakes>adaptations>start vibration-deactivated (this was previously on "strong" from the factory or something) AND torque limiter off/deactivated (this feature was already off when I got to the screen btw)

2017 S non-peepee, 6MT, ECU is tuned via cobb accessport. Thanks for all the info and anyone else posting should go back to page 1 cause everything youll wanna know is already here (pp, non-pp, dsg, tuned untuned, VCDS obdeleven, and if this will work)

I see so much overuse of the word "nannies". In most if not all cases, they're driving the car way better than you possibly ever could.

Whenever I see someone use "nannies," I think that person insists that his skills are superior to the technology. I also think that person is wrong and is in denial.

What if someone thinks that highly skilled means spinning the front tires at will?

In a straight line, those nannies absolutely take the performance out of the car. They are not there to maximize performance, they are there to keep the car on the straight and narrow.

Yes VW would prefer you not wrap your car around a tree
