Don't worry Indydof, it looks like it is 21-012-15, which amongst other things, says it addresses the symptom "Less than desired engine braking during downhill descent"
I'll go talk to the dealer!
This forum really is great.
Thanks,
Russell

Re: WK2 Offroad

Just get the dealer to update via their system, the update improves many other things too. My hardest part was convincing the dealer to do it.

Very impressive Nicam!
I notice the front LH wheel spinning when off the ground when the RH front is stopped - I always thought that the spinning wheel would be braked to transfer torque to the other wheel on the same axle ( given that there's no front LSD).

Only on steep downhills like I described Hutch?
I'll report back here when I've had the TSB applied - probably won't be until late next week though. Not sure where I'll test it though - I'll have to go looking for a steep enough hill.

Thanks Russell, I had a good spotter too!

Yeah I noticed that too with the front tyres. The traction control didn't kick in, however near the start you will notice the other tyre did start to spin.
I'm getting the car serviced today so I'll mention it to the service guys.
Btw no damage!

Rock, I also had it mud mode earlier. I noticed the car performs better in mud mode as far as traction control is concerned.
Going out again next weekend at Lithgow.
