    Icon6 Faster Idle = faster/smoother acceleration!!

    Hi all, was tinkering with my idle on the weekend as I was sick and tired of it wavering up and down between 800 and 400 when slowing down at traffic lights. Anyway I've set it around 950 - 1000 rpm and have found that acceleration through the gears from standstill feels much stronger. I suspect it might have something to do with the idle maintaining revs between changes?? Not that I thrash the guts out of it as I rarely rev it past 5000 rpm. It just seems to pick up or maintain its pace alot better now than before. Just my for what its worth.

    Yes, they're much happier at 1000rpm. Also keep in mind that 205 tachos are very inaccurate.
