Mine seems slow compared to any other car I've driven but as said by MJ I thought this was normal because of the flywheel.

Mine does it too but only now and then, always thought it had something to do with the cableless throttle

Mine is similar it seems to take an age to slow down but I put it to it having a 12kg rotating mass at the end of the crank. Can't wait for winter so I can bang in a helix.

really a feature. so they made them slower through gear changes having to wait for the revs to fall so you can get back on the power must be a fault

Its actually better for the revs to fall back slowly when your shifting fast.

And most turbo cars that have a lot of torque have a heavier flywheel.

Surely the revs drop when you lift off the clutch? :S
The only reason this is a tiny inconvenience to me is on the rare occasions when cruising i poke 2nd a bit n then put it in 4th. Then I give it a tiny bit of time to drop a bit.
Normal driving it shouldn't be an issue though...

It's all due to inertia .... heavy flywheel or crank and such take more time to slow down (hold more energy)...also take more power/energy to speed up.
I don't think it has anything to do with wire-driven or drive-by-wire systems.
