We are slowly documenting our software and calibrations in more detail.
Below is the information for the DQ250 6 speed as found in the preface lift Golf R.
Increased oil cooling at higher torque outputs
Increased minimum temperature before Launch Control will activate
Reduced launch delay when releasing brake pedal.
Reduction of delay to initiate gear change when paddle or lever is activated
Increased rate of torque build up under launch control
Optimised Launch Control RPM - dependant on engine tune and spec.
Increased Maximum possible RPM - dependant on engine tune and spec.
Increased adaptation sensitivity - this allows the gearbox to adapt to changes in driving style and wear more quickly.
Increased maximum torque rise during hard acceleration.
Reduced shift times in Manual and Sport modes.
Increased maximum allowed torque
Increased maximum clutch pressures. This is a complete recalibration of the clutch operation, depending on engine spec. For stage 3 cars, 17 bar of pressure can be applied while maintaining smooth shift operation.
Removal of kickdown in manual (recommended)
Removal of auto upshift in manual
Optimised Shift points in D mode (recommended):
This increases the upshift point and down shift point at low throttle positions. The shift points have been carefully chosen to provide a more natural feel without the car wanting to race into 6th gear !st gear is virtually unaffected, with the difference increasing with each successive gear. This results in a more eager response without the feeling of revving unnecessarily. There is no constant changing of gears at typical cruising speeds such as 30mph city driving.
Optimised Shift points in S mode (recommended):
This results in a much more use-able S mode. Under light throttle, the gearbox will shift up much earlier than as standard, but still higher than in D mode.
We can adjust the shift points to specific customer requirements, but the vast majority will use our standard optimised options.
