Marc mentioned "There was only one minor complaint. I asked Glenn why doesn't the engine RPM drop off faster? He said that was one of his grips too. It seemed to take forever for the revs to come back down. I believe that it was set up that way to help insure a smoother transition between shifting gears. " in another post.
I have the same issue. It is also somewhat disconcerting when you take your foot off the gas and expect the compression to slow you down but you keep going for what seems like forever before you start so slow down.

Maybe we have an expert out there that knows how to retune this feature so it will drive more like a normal stick??? :banghead

Best way I have found so far when driving and needing to slow down, I drop from Drive to 3rd to 2nd. It helps and I love the sound.

When I get my Predator back I plan on resetting the shift points also.

He's refering to manual shift SSRs not slowing down between shifts, a lighter fly wheel
would solve this complaint.
In a normal situation yes. If you have driven one you will see that it is more than just the flywheel. You can feel that the computer or a solenoid is controlling the engine speed. What is it and how do we fix it??

Jfyi

Down shifting the transmission to 2nd gear may sound nice but using it to brake is more expensive than brake pads. Remember these rides are close to 5000 lbs.

I have two long hills to go down everyday to work, or just to get to town. I have found in both my SSR, and my Vette, that if I just touch the brakes at the top of the hill the computer will drop the idle in just a few feet, rather than free wheeling all the way down the hill (where the radar is usually set up).
