    Went to uni in Aberystwyth, some great driving road. Shame I was in a VW Polo (old box shape)

    One of my fav places I've been to in Wales. Trouble is, the roads are so picturesque I want to pull over and take a picture. But that would mean taking my foot off the accelerator, which I didn't want to do either.

    We so need them for the next Castleton meet.

    @Legojon I think you now have a sheep fetish.

    Probably just your imagination.

    Trip over to R-Tech today. Ace bunch of guys. Even though they are run off their feet, everyone takes time out to chat with you and you can really feel their passionate about their performance cars.

    I wasn't sure if I was doing the right thing swapping map for map. But when I got the printout, I was sure :D

    Awesome!

    So Revo might not be the best way to go for all round awesome then... You mentioned they map in the traction control or something to help put the power down...

    So have you sent an invoice to @Jairm88 for showing you what it's like haha

    I'm actually like a kid that just got the best xmas present ever. The excitement hasn't died down yet. Yeah, he's mapped the traction control to make it more progressive rather than all or nothing. Also, he's near eliminated the compressor surge (it's impossible to get rid of it 100%). It also makes lots of cool different sound effects now!! And moved the power band into the center. I can't breathe.

    To be fair to Niki, he did say that there was nothing wrong with the Revo map. It was giving good timings and numbers. I just felt that for the money I spent on the brand name parts, I should be getting more from it... and now I am.

    Haha, I think you've got me to spend more on cleaning products than I have on the remap!

    Very nice results there. As long as it puts a smile on your face it’s well worth all the money time and effort you’ve put into the car. Looks great

    The traction mapping Niki does is addictive in the wet

    Cheers, I couldn't sleep last night cause I just wanted to take the car out again. I feel like choosing the mods I have has come good in the end. Now just gotta learn to drive it again!

    Cheers. Yeah, I'm still getting used to it. Things definitely disappearing in the rear view mirror quicker.

    :rofl:

    Whilst driving it, if you lose traction (the tc light comes on) it appears to hold back the power a bit rather than applying the brakes and causing that annoying judder.

    Mixed day today. Had my yearly cam follower. 7000 miles and the coating had started to wear. Oil pick up pipe done. Tick. Along with oil change (obviously) and oil filter.

    The real kicker was it took over 2 hours to get my car through the mot. Apparently my sports cat is knackered at 2.5 years / 20k miles so needs replacing before next year's mot. I just expected it to last a bit longer than that (that's what she said!).
