DBW is not and never will be more responsive than a mechanically operated throttle body. With a cable connection the pedal action is in sync with throttle blade action. In DBW, you have some software that determines what you want and then sends the signal to the throttle motor. While the computing may not induce noticable lag, the throttle still uses an electrical motor that no matter how you want to believe otherwise, numbs throttle response.
DBW is a step forward for numerous reasons, but NOT in the throttle response department.

Meaning the two are dirrectly linked to one another..
There's no signal being transmitted through space..
PCM does not control the blade..
So with that said the ventury actuates @ the same time as the ped is moved..
Fly by wire simply combines 2 systems.. Traction control and cruise..
Turn off the ASR and there's no difference between a cable TB or the Servoed TB..
SO the guy whom thinks he's got a faster foot, try again..
Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.

Letting off defeats the purpose of the system..
ASR gives traction for pulling out in adverse conditions by controlling wheel to wheel spin while maintaining vehicle momentum..
I bet you're one of those guys that stops on a frozen hill huh?

PS. ASR "ON" will out excellerate a spining tire non TCS car any day of the week..
If you spin you lose...
Power is great if you can put it down..
