I perhaps wasn't as clear as I'd intended to be in posting this quote. I agree with Mark E to a point that there will be an effect, but I perhaps diverge with his opinion on the extent of the effect or how noticeable it is (or should be if your car/acc is fit).Originally posted by Mark R:
But it shouldn't have any noticeable performance effect when driving. [/QB][/b]
Presumably your passengers noticed the effect even more than you did?Originally posted by MarkA:
[qb]When I used to put foot down, the effect of the aircon disengaging on the acceleration was noticable, it was like throwing a passenger out the window.[/qb][/b]
Must remember that ploy when I am trying to outdrag someone with passengers on board.
