Ok, so there are a few annoying bugs:
BMW 1M at lime rock, ABS HIGH, still can lock up the front wheels, and car will not steer and go straight.
Sorry SRW, but ABS means no lock up, especially on a BMW of this generation.
No excuse for that, and the brake balance looks normal.
Had the same problem with other cars- but Coss said "not all ABS works that way". Fine but on a BMW 1M with top notch ABS, I DONT THINK SO! Even a low end BMW 3 series from 2001 doesn't lock up the front wheels. I've also driven a 2012 BMW M3 on a track, and same thing, ABS won't let you lock up wheels.
So why is ABS not ABS on some cars, and in this case a car that HAS GREAT ABS IN REAL LIFE??!?!?
I like using UPSHIFT on (to not miss a shift), but upshift manually with paddles (and downshift paddles too).
Various cars, arbitraily have this bug where using upshift, you CANNOT MANUALLY UPSHIFT:
I thought it was only the older cars, like Evo, F3.
But just experienced it in the BMW 1M!!!! Why?!?!
It helps to have upshift on, the shifting is crisper than auto clutch. Also auto clutch off is quick, but not wise because it makes the rear end unstable!
List of cars encountered that lock out paddle use when in auto or upshift mode:
There are a couple more that I cannot recall.
added; Golf R
added; Jaguar XKR
added; 2005 Maserati Stradale
added; 2012 ford mustang boss
added; mazda furai
If this is intended, why are these (and some others) chosen??? IT MAKES NO LOGICAL SENSE!
