I have simar issues here with a late 2019 rs le. Tracking an english blog the PDC is the issue - designed to handle wind gusts on an autobahn at speed automatically.
Car is fantastic in hills. In a straight drop to 5th & accelerate to pass another car and im fighting the car overcorrecting - nearly put me off the road half a dozen times now... Blog said they can dial PDC compensation dow to zero in the UK. Ford locally say they cant. Anyone in OZ managed to disab l e the PDC? Cheers Mike
Mine tracks straight as well. That said, if you poke ANY high-powered FWD/AWD vehicle while crossing uneven pavement like passing another car and crossing the crown in the road, it WILL have steering inputs from the tire feedback. It’s a fact.
Even my 6000+ pound 2018 Raptor will pull the wheel across uneven pavement. People on the Raptor forums whine about it as well.
Mine also is straight at low speeds. I think the issue is apparent 4th gear up on the highway. Mine is better than it was after numerous mods, but I still suspect this pdc is driving the car. There is no denying that the feature exists and is active on our cars. The question is how intrusive is the system.
Ford's electronic power assist system EPAS I think they call their power steering (non hydraulic) has a feature, pull drift compensation PDC. This exists on numerous ford cars, the raptor included I'd wager. Not sure who's whining, I think any purist can appreciate wanting to eliminate all electronic driving aids. Abs and pdc included.
I wouldn't be game to try that in my own car. I commonly experience what I think is typical torque steer behaviour (influenced by imperfect road surfaces in my neighbourhood) under hard acceleration. I have on one occasion experienced the 'veering' that others have referred to in the form of a sudden and seemingly inexplicable four foot pitch off straight ahead. Best way to describe it would be like a phantom giving a sharp 15-20 degree tug on the steering wheel. I have driven the same section of road in the same manner and a variety of conditions numerous times since and it has never happened again.
I've only had it happen once. Crowned narrow rough Australian back road tarmac with chewed ragged edges, just the place for accuracy. Pulled out to overtake and accelerated hard at same time, it tried to throw itself off road into tree with a 4 foot veer. I caught it but my passenger and I both thought it was really extreme and not just torque steer. Never happened again.
Ok - while I know there are folks out there with issues and problems, I want to get some thoughts on questions regarding this. I installed a catless CPE DP.
For the record - hated the install as others have mentioned and fully agree on every point. This is very unlike previous DP installs...
I recently had a performance clutch put in my RS. When I got it back from the shop they told me to take it Easy for 1k miles. I did as they said, I didn’t do any neutral drops, didn’t put it drift mode. I drove it like a normal human being. I had just got over a thousand miles, And while I was...
I recently changed the PTU fluid, but in the process I stripped the Torx head. Can anyone point me to either the Ford part number, or aftermarket part that will fit? The Ford dealer near me has been useless, and I haven’t had any luck searching the net.
I installed the Cobb catback exhaust this weekend and eventually I could hear the midpipe rattling on that black support for the drive shaft. I tried twisting the mid pipe a little more to see if I could get a little more clearance, was wondering if anyone with the cobb exhaust has had this...
I feel somewhat responsible for this cock up, so I'm helping my friend clear this issue.
He removed his clutch line to get rid of restrictors, and maybe 40ml of fluid drained out before he plugged the online back in. They used the two person method to bleed, pumped the clutch pedal 5 times or...
