  1. According to my current use, I have done 37 miles since filling up exactly 4 weeks ago! That is an average of 1.3214 miles a day. The range is saying 283 miles left. This means under the current situation the rest of the fuel is going to last me 214 days or 30.59 weeks!!!😭😭🤣😂🤣
  2. I feel your pain. I was looking forward to smashing out a 10.6 at the Pod this year.😭
  3. Sticky tyres and weight loss should drop the time to around the 10.65 to 10.75 time bracket. Launch is decent anyway, so I doubt sticky tyres would improve the time much. weight reduction is key, reducing the weight by 80 to 100kg should easily drop 0.1 to 0.2 off the full weight time. battery weight is just over 20kg, so that can be dropped by 10kg, removing the rear bench is nearly 20kg, removing the spare tyre is another 20kg, passenger seat is over 25kg and a race driver seat would reduce the weight by another 10kg. that little lot is 85kg..😎
  4. Yep, with hindsight a new set of clutchpacks would 100% have had me into the 10’s with the 6R. To consider that the 6R needed WMI, full strip out, carbon replacement parts, sticky tyres and a lot of patience to finally get it to [email protected] and now the 7.5R makes [email protected] with a basic stage 3 conversion, on normal road fuel, road tyres and full weight is phenomenal. 👍😎
  5. A few shots of the R.😎 Running well at the moment. Just had it’s 3rd service in 14,500 miles including DSG service. [email protected] 1/4 mile 6.65 for 100-200kph 0-60mph in 3.00 60-130mph in 7.85 All times done with full weight and 99ron only on road tyres. 👍
  6. I bought them from AliExpress. £18 inc. delivery. my caps aren’t carbon, they are sprayed in the body colour. 👍
  7. New paddle extensions fitted over the weekend. Much better feel than the stick on ones I had before. Literally a 2 minute job and well worth it.😎👍
  8. Cheers Bowen. It is a bit of a faff to be fair. Taking out the top part of the screenwash bottle and access to the separator on the head are the fiddliest parts.🥴
  9. All the torque limit issues floated away when I went with TVS for the DSG mapping. Underground Performance worked wonders on the engine mapping too. 😎👍
  10. Right, a bit of an update.......... After a few maps with Underground Performance, I ended up booking a full on dyno day all to myself, courtesy of Steve at Statller in Sheffield. Steve did the dyno work and I did the remote tuning with Alex and Mickey at UGP (Underground Performance) along with sharing the VCDS logging. Several dyno runs and many files later we settled on 550bhp and 525lbft. Midrange boost was set at 34psi with some decent timing advance without going mad. What can I say about the car now?.........It’s quick, it’s brutal, it’s smooth, it’s quiet, it’s loud.....it’s basically perfect. The car has what you’d call a schizophrenic personality, which all depends on what mode you put it in and how you drive it in that mode. To be honest, I never thought that I would have a car that would excite me as much as my old 6R did, but WOW! This 7.5R has done it. The results on the road speak for themselves too. Alex at UGP has basically the same car, on the same hardware and software as mine and his just did an official [email protected] on 98 ron in daily driver spec. My results are attached including a few dragy runs (sorry, no 1/4 mile time until I go to the Pod😉)
  11. Another one here not convinced by the Golf 8 shape and the speculative outputs of the 8R. Glad I bought my 7.5R when I did.....before the petrol particulate filter came in and after the DQ250 left the car. even if they said it was 400bhp out of the tin I’d still keep the 500+bhp one I have now. 😎🎉🕺🏻🥳
  12. 19x8.5” TDPR 1.3’s ET45 with 5mm rear spacers. Yes, these V5 turbos romp on power wise.
  13. Mine will be approx 540bhp. I will be up in Northumberland on the 13th. It will be for road use with maybe 3-4 trackdays a year.
  14. That is a Turbo Technics V5 Turbo. 600+bhp capable.😎
  15. I am currently in the middle of remote tuning with them. They sent over a MAGIC X17 slave box for me to download the maps directly onto the car from files they send to my PC. I then log it for fuelling via VCDS on the road and then we move on from there. It is a custom mapping process. I am really enjoying this process as it is ages since I was fully involved in tuning a car. We started off on a base file with very little timing advance and boost set at a standard low level for accurate calibration of the 4 bar map sensor. We then moved on from there once the VCDS fuelling logs are done and confirmed as okay, just so we know that the engine and hardware is all okay. I am currently on a second file, which has more timing and boost. The “full fat” file is next week and that should make around 540bhp. Once this map is on we will dyno it and then we can tweak it to my hardware to push it if I want to chase a few figures.😎👍
