.....heres the deal...for the past few days ive been DRIVING my car... it now has 3800 miles on it so i figured id get to know it and sharpin my skills a little bit
...so the past few days ive been driving it "hard" ;nice fast shifts (which by the way im getting pretty dern good at lol) heal toe downshifting
, figuring out how to get it off the line quick and so on and so on... so i get in the car this morning and i take off... driving normally cause i have my sister... and it just felt much better,crisper,and stronger than before i started driving it agressively...so did the cars computer do something or what??

Sounds like a cold morning. The colder air will give you a faster car. I love to rip rear the beach at night. Get great cold air down there. No need for an FMIC for the winter http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

The ECU is always adapting. You have 'taught' the car you like to drive fast so the car remembers this. Alot of slow driving will have the opposite effect. When you finally go to get on the car, it will feel slow.. This is not an excuse to speed

What are you talking about? Our pedals are PERFECT for heel and toe downshifting, floorhinged throttle is SWEET plus ot reminds me of a 911 I drove once.
About this ECU logic thing....are you saying if I broke my car in non agressively, grandma shifting wtc, that that's the way my ECU will function thruout the life of the car? Or, will some bouts of spirited driving "teach" the ECU new habits???
