can someone please clarify when the boost is supposed to kick in when running race+ or DSCI.

Having read hundreds of posts on the subject it appears most people get that big kick around 2000-2500rpm.
When in 3rd mine kicks in about 4000k on both maps.
I dont have any issues with this- i love it, but i wondered if dreamscience had altered any perameters to help eliminate limp mode or something.

I say 3rd gear as i believe 1st and 2nd are still torque limited, although i still get no big kick in 2nd at 2000k.!!

many thanks

If this is just in the current damp conditions, it sounds like your Traction Control is cutting power until you get grip ...

Mine does this, and quite often the TC/ESP light doesn't flash even though the power is definately being reduced ...


In the dry I get strong boost from around 2000rpm, it peaks at about 3500rpm, drops a bit then comes again around 4500-5500...


I think all ST's are slightly different though, but not getting any proper boost til 4000rpm does seem pretty strange ...
