Hrm, I'm definitely not crazy about this - there's a bit more resistance in the last bit of pushing the pedal to the metal - and pushing into this seems cause a gear shift. Hence my logs where i vary between 98 and 100.

My first logging attempt - got it in 3rd, 1500ish rpm, DSG shifter pushed to the right. Pedal to the metal - it shifts into 2nd at high rpm. wtf?

press the pedal max before the click. if you notice theirs a click if you go deep enough on the pedal. Clicking that click will cause the car to downshift gears.

So if you push it all the way down but not hard enough to click the kick down switch are you still at 100%?

yes because for me it says 100% throttle and I'm just right above the click. 6speed automatic.

That's the kick down switch. You can go right to it without pressure a difference still be 100%. Once you're over 4,300 or so you can push all the way

I love it! Looks to me like you were pulling on all of them and might have let off early at the end? The supra might have been gaining overall but the two STI's got focked for sure.

Makes me feel better about my decision to sell my 2015 WRX. I see little reason to keep that car seeing how my Golf can be made faster for less than half the money I spent on the Subie.

I don't have a DSG but I'm pretty sure its programmed similarly. I had this happen when I did a log last week, it shifted into FIRST when I floored it with the shift level over to the right.

I've found that shifting it to the manual mode and then downshifting from 6th to 3rd seems to hold your RPM's when you floor it. If you are up-shifting it in manual-mode from a standstill it seems to want to auto-upshift for you for some reason

Yeah, that sounds about right.

The kickdown switch has priority over everything, so the lever being to the right won't matter.

While I'm having fun exploring what jb4 can do, I'm also concerned about the longevity of my turbo and engine. I'm not a track guy - just a little spirited driving here and there. Is there anything to be concerned with?
