UKGT500 Posted August 24, 2014 Report Share Posted August 24, 2014 Well I've been posting lately about adding more power but what I should be asking is how I can put my existing power down.... My problem, if it is one, is that I never feel like I can totally put all the power down until I am well on the move. Forget first gear, in second and even third I have to be quite progressive with the throttle to avoid breaking traction. Also sometimes I feel like I am experiencing torque steer, for example if I am entering a main road via an on-ramp and am already doing 40-60 mph. If I give it a lot of throttle I sometimes feel the right hand side kind of dip down or go a bit soft momentarily. I have gotten a bit more used to it but it is there sometimes. I can put a lot of its' power down but what I am really saying is I never feel like I can put it all down. I feel I run it under its' true potential and it could be even more impressive if I can get the power down. It could just be that it's just a lot of torque to be putting through 2 tyres on the street but there are people on here with much more power and torque who must be putting it down OK. I am just wondering if it's just something like relocation brackets for the LCAs that I need? I have the stock UCA but I tried a BMR one and it transmitted too much harshness through the car for my liking. Any ideas? It isn't a huge problem really but it would be nice to drive it a bit harder with out feeling like I should be ready to "catch it" when I give it to it.. Obviously this is on smooth roads and in the dry: I try not to take it out in the wet and if I get caught out I drive like an old Lady then! Also on rough roads I am very careful. I do understand it isn't a car to really throw around on the street and I am quite happy with that... My car is a 2007 GT500 with Brenspeed 100+ RWHP kit (pulley and tune). My suspension setup consists of: FRPP springs and shocks (apparently the same as 2011/2012 GT500 with Performance package option). BMR adjustable panhard bar and brace (adjusted correctly) BBR billet LCAs. My tires are stock and in fact most likely the originals from new as I still have quite low miles.
