If you are speeding up when the light comes on, It means the wheels are loosing traction and the car will apply the brake to that wheel to try and stop it and if you keep the power on it will start cutting the power of the engine to TRY and stop you, if you turn the asr off (so light is on all the time ) you can go out and smoke those hides, because these babies have got some go, because with 400 odd horses they will spin up in some odd places when you least expect it, happy smoking

When you loose power during ASR lights on your transmission is on limp home mode, the problem arises from the throttle actuator potentiometer, throttle actuator harness and or engine harness deterioration. If non of the above symptoms are present then you need to adjust the bowden cable, the one with the black plastic arrow on top of the laft throttle actuator
