    yes,the butterfly is not fully closed,so the compressed air from turbo still circulates air mixture into the cylinders=push
    λογω της πεταλούδας γκαζιού που δεν είναι κλειστη ,ενώ εχεις αφησει τελειως το γκαζι,αυτο σπρωχνει ακομα,το ποσο δυνατα θα σπρωχνει, εχει να κανει με το ποσο επιθετικο antilag εχεις ρυθμισει.Καποια είναι ρυθμισμένα να σηκωνουν πιεση 0,5 bar,καποια 0,8 bar και καποια αρκετα παραπανω.

    Here is story from AKK (Finlands motorsport federation) http://www.autourheilu.fi/uutiset/ta...tavat-renkaat/
    Manufacturers promised to FIA few years ago that they will stop producing "non-ERC" tyres. And you know the reality...

    Yes, the more primitive ALS which is allowed for R5 cars behaves like the car is pushing the throttle itself because the engine itself is part of the ALS function. WRC cars have extra air channel which by-passes the engine and brings the air directly to the exhaust. Therefore the engine itself isn't needed for ALS function.

    Well hopefully in a weeks time our group will have touched down in Nice and will just be picking up our hire car. Can't wait for my second Monte, and to see the 2017 beasts up close!
