Actually the car is not shifting slower but more like the SMG mechanical shift can not shift any faster than it is. The problem with us VT2 guys is that the shift lag becomes more pronounced when we have so much power available and we just want it to go
There is no coding that is done by ESS as I have asked Roman about this 4 times now.
