brake torque the quad

has anyone tried to brake-torque the quad on a 0-60? i was blown away. this is really the best car EVER!!!

also wanted to share the following video comparison of the giulia quad vs stelvio quad. some of the camera shots are amazing.... (it's in italian, but the camera shots are language-less!)

Yes its a powerful tool for launching the Powerful Italian Beast! Several of the Reviewers mentioned it and used it. At least one said he had worse results from brake boosting and encountering a nanny.



My results have not been predictable or totally consistent so I suspect the electronic nannies are nearby but it transforms the launch personality to say the least. Then the 8 speed just keeps it in the powerband so well. A Blast.



That reminds me - has anyone tried Brake Boosting from a roll?


May have to go out and try that one now!


Edit / update - No Dice on the Brake Boosting. Service Electronic Throttle Warning in dash. Haha


We need an agressive tuning shop.

Yes, brake boosting has been around forever. Especially useful with any vehicle that has a turbo.

That was fun to watch! I changed the settings so the subtitles would in English that the translation errors were hilarious!
Should that driver have been wearing a helmet?
Amazing capability!
