I would say this was a perfect launch, just strange I couldnt shift, but the cvt kept upping the ratio. After 16 or so stop lights I get a situation where the assist meter peggs after 10-20 mph, then there is a pause of a few seconds before the engine rpms kick up and the acceleration kicks in again. This isnt the perfect car for stop n go driving as the launches are not repeatable.
Smooth rpms? What does yours do? How frequently do you change the cvt fluid? I do it with my engine oil change.
My insight was one of the first ones out in 09, I bought a March made model in May. To my knowledge the computer has never been updated.
Sometimes when I launch the car it wont even get that high in the rpm band. Here I have the car floored both times I do to accelerate and it wont break 5 grand.
I dont know where you are from, but we got some a-holes on the road and reverse a-holes. The reverse a-holes if they see you accelerating they merge in front of you and hold you up like in this second video. The other ones are the ones that get 2 ft from your bumper or cut in front of you and disapear.
