84% Throttle Max?

I use a Garmin Virb that connects to the OBDII port and reads most of the cars sensors. I noticed that at full throttle the Virb is saying 84%.

Is something still holding the car back?

I am in Sport Mode 5.

I don't know the answer, but I would turn all 'nannies' off and then check it.

I don't know what else you can turn off. Track Mode 5 is as off as I am aware of.

Hey Frenchsquared,


Long hold traction control button is all off... you should go from no traction / stability lights on dash to both on without using the Tour / Sport + / - buttons. Usually takes 5 seconds to turn off.

You probably will be faster with all nannies off on track... in AutoX 5 is extremely intrusive for on throttle application.

As I understand it, PTM 5 = no off throttle help e.g., you break it, you fix it. However, it does provide on throttle application help and in my experience cuts power, stops rotation when you might actually want it.

Hope this helps.

Dave

I missed that in the manual.
I will give it a shot. I was 2 seconds fasting going from Sport 2 to Sport 5 turning 1.44:00's. Would be really nice to have more power coming out of the corners

French squared,
Sorry I didn't post how to turn all off, my bad.
I would like to hear the results though!

That's the output for full throttle using the signal from the OBD. There are other signal outputs that will read 100%. No worries - you're at WOT.

This is what I figure the issue was. Will still try turning everything off.

Makes no difference with TC on or fully off. My VIRB reads the same thing, it must be the OBD signal or the way Garmin processes it. I know my throttle body opens %100 when my pedal is fully depressed, this is something I check on every car I have ever owned just to make sure.

You can verify this by pulling up the MAF rate on the screen, At WOT at around 7K RPM it should be around 14oz/s or 400g/s.

I can confirm this. The newer ECM's read 84% at WOT. As noted, you can choose different PID's that read 0-100.

That should be WOT. I believe with my AIM system, it's like 98%. My friends new ZL1 is like 94%
