View Full Version : Turbo question.......

2002.07.23, 07:40 AM
I recently installed the GPM super turbo v.2.........

Now when I gun the accelerator, then push forward on the controller (to put into reverse/brake) the motor will not go into reverse for a couple of seconds - untill the motor has lowered it's rev's a bit.

Has anyone else experienced this ? Or do your motors go instantly into reverse with a turbo installed ?

Sounds like the turbo has a brake feature, Surely thats good?

Plus I am pretty sure swapping from full forward to full reverse straight away isn't good for your car...

Butler - That's exactly what I thought - but the car does not seem to slow down much at all. You have to let the car loose it's momentum before it will go into reverse.

That's normal for turbo's. I have TLP and it does the same thing. Most of the voltage goes into the forward so the reverse has to be sacrificed by a bit.

Thanks for that Wedge - that's calmed my nerves. I thought I might have had a dodgy turbo.
