  1. The torque increases so yes there is additional stress, but most stage 1 maps should still be within tolerances. There's a torque limiter to protect itself too. Higher torque ECU maps may require a TCU map to increase clutch clamping pressures to avoid slip - Revo recommend this for stage 2. Presumably this does reduce the life span of the clutch packs to some extent.
  2. I would take the opportunity to upgrade the discs and pads at the same time - if you buy OEM style pads now you'll be taking them out when you upgrade the discs later. Clubsport discs are also overpriced IMHO. Have a look at the Vagbremtechnic j-hooked discs which perform great, and with the money saved buy some decent pads 🙂. While you're at it get braided lines and better fluid and you'll be absolutely sorted for fast road and very light track day use.
  3. Yes I have, spacers to clear my BBK though rather than for a certain stance - I went with 11mm Forge hubcentrics all round and i'm lowered on eibach pros, which have settled at around 15mm drop. I think it looks good, but others may prefer an even more aggressive stance! Don't have pics handy as currently have my summer wheels on. Oh and for bolt lengths just add the spacer width to the OEM bolt length (27mm). A few mm on the long side is fine - I use 40mm bolts
  4. yeah would have been good to see but I'm sure i'll get it on the dyno at some point
  5. not me I'm afriad, ran out of time when I went to stage 2 originally and only nipped in to get the update
  6. So I got the update last Thursday... ...and it's rather good! Obviously can't verify Revo's claims of "Max Gains over previous Stage 2: +37HP @ 2800RPM / +93NM @ 2800RPM" but I can say that the midrange feels epic and utterly effortless - a noticeable improvement over the old stage 2 file. Free too! I have intake mods, and 'cooler so hopefully making the most of the software.
  7. I can't find the Superpro camber/caster bush kit anywhere but powerflex do a camber one: https://www.awesomegti.com/brands/powerflex-bushes/powerflex-front-wishbone-front-bush-camber-adjustable-golf-mk7-5g-4wd-pff85-501g/ Anyone have any experience of this? It looks really good...
  8. Yes very - cable tied on to the wishbones. Got mine from AKs tuning for about £35.
  9. Thanks Karl, I'm actually booked in for it on Thursday now, so I'll report back too. I'm currently stage 2
  10. Has there been an update to the Revo Stage 2 file recently as part of the performance pack release? Anyone got it and noticed a difference?
  11. Yes I did brakes because I track the car, but even if I didn't track it I would still upgrade the discs, pads, hoses and fluid for a good fast road setup. No need for a full blown bbk unless you regularly go on track IMHO
  12. I went with Revo purely because my local tuners are Revo dealers, but I must say I've been very happy with both the stage 1 and stage 2 tunes I've had. Currently stage 2 with the tcu map, intercooler, intake mods etc and it's phenomenal to drive. Not had it on a dyno but with my supporting mods I would be hoping for around 400bhp/400ftlbs
  13. Black circles was the best place when I bought a few weeks. I'll report back at the weekend....
  14. Ian I was really unimpressed with the PS4 on track, I found they went off after only a few laps and I destroyed the shoulders (Knockhill is brutal though). I've had my Yoko AD08R on for a week now and they're superb on the road, can only imagine they'll be good on track too from the reviews, but i'll find out on Saturday! They sit between the PS4 and PSC2 in terms of price, about £130/corner, so maybe worth considering? Dave
