I guess this is turning into a track thread which may be better posted elsewhere - but it starts with the lag issue. I did not use 1st either except for launching, and pits. And was not expecting too. But am thinking it may be the best option to keep in the boost range. Problem is things happen exceedingly quick in 1st, on boost. Not my first option really - especially in the wet.
When we talk of turbo lag, what are we really referring to - the rev range before it kicks in?
Mine hits pretty hard at 3k, ie when I see 3k approaching I know something vicious is about to hit. The issue for me is the 500 rpm below this, it is like no body home. With 7 :0 compression, I guess it may be a bit gutless as a motor and everything really has to happen on boost. In which case I will need 1st gear on about 3/4 of the corners. Hard day at the office.
