I went to the track yesterday super excited using the GIAC Race Program 100 Octane, only to be somewhat let down when I had turned of the stability control and it really does not turn off. With the traction control still on I lost a lot of really needed power through some of the turns. So while at the track I started researching the web and found that the European and Canadian cars will really turn off the traction control by holding down the ASR button for 3 seconds and hear a ding sound. It bugged me so much that I am taking action for what should have come on our US spec cars. I spoke with Austin at GIAC and he said check to make sure the part #'s of the ABS Module for the Canandian and US cars are the same and we can change the coding to make it Euro or Canadian spec. So I called this VW Parts guy in Canada (another Austin haha) and ends up he has a Golf R too. What are the odds. He sent me a log of his coding on his Canadian Golf R. I will show you guys however please use at your own risk as I am verifying with Austin at GIAC that the codes match up with his Golf R connects in Europe and Canada. I am itching to find out. Once I do I will repost my findings. Here is the Canadian spec coding below:
