    is it me or the acceleration in 2018.42.x (RWD) is significantly more aggressive in 2018.42.x ?

    I am not flooring it every day, so hard to compare from one version to the next, but for sure I don’t remember it sending you back in the seat the way it does now

    Same on my car but I think it’s just the accelerator profile, not that there’s any more power available. Full throttle feels the same.

    Yeah, I think they changed the pedal mapping along with regen changes.

    I also noticed it. Seems more responsive to pedal movement.

    I noticed it. Personally, im liking it, makes my car feel stronger. Before it felt way to weak and I felt like i had to floor it to accelerate.

    Initial tip-in definitely feels more robust!
