Part of the issue is that the throttle is computer controlled and has some lags relating to the frame rate of the computer and the response rate of the throttle actuator.

The result is a lag that is mostly noticable off idle. So what happens is you push the accellerator,<computer: think><think><think>, push harder,<think><think><respond>push harder. Go.

It is almost like someone wanted to emulate the response of a Pontiac tripower (floor it, count three, GO.

I find it hard to modulate a smooth start even after 10K miles in my 5 speed '12, imagine a '14 is worse.

Does anyone know what the frame rate is for a Chrysler computer ? Somehow doubt it is measured in GHz.
