"set the gas"
Another moan about my car. On an 03 its the newest car ive ever bought. ive recently qualified as a driving instructor so im being very picky.... but i think when dealing with learners its important ot get it all just right.
This time im thinking about trying to teach them to move off. Obviously a lot of it is about getting the right revs. When im driving i aim for 1300ish revs to shift me. With this car though, i doesnt like gentle revs!
It idles well at just under 1000rpm then with a delicate touch of the pedal it yoyos unp and down between 1500 and 1000rpm. Only settles enough to move away smoothly at about 2000revs.
It does get a lot better once car is warm but still caatches me sometimes!
