Man I had so much smells in the first month of owning my GTS, I think the 1st week I had it, I saw clouds of blue/grey smoke coming out from under the Hood
, it was that bad, always happened moving from an incline. Which was like back in December. I would rev it up too much for fear of stalling, and that damn DBW is too sensitive, just press the gas a tad and it revs up so much. I still have a bit of problems on steep hills, sometimes I'm so afraid of stalling it, I give it extra gas and too slow at let the clutch out fully, it smokes. I'm still trying to coordinate letting go of the e-brake and moving forward on a hill, but haven't had enough practice. So far I've finally managed to keep it smell free and giving the clutch a break. I dunno, maybe the stock clutch heats up too fast, I was thinking of putting in a TRD
performance clutch or Centerforce Dual Friction Clutch. Maybe those will be more forgiving.
