  1. I don't see it as a bad thing. I've entered. He's making some good profit, charity is getting some and whoever wins is getting a very cheap car! Win win all round.
  2. I had an MRC map on mine, was very fast but not very good in terms of drive ability. Gone Unicorn Stage 3 map with TVS Stage 3 DSG, best combo. Car runs amazing! 512hp 452lb-ft
  3. Well, 3 runs in for today. Best time I got was 11.3 at 124mph, and that is with a slipping clutch still so improvement still to be made. Need to check a few other things as while logging Cylinder 1 and 3 are pulling timing so could be coils, plugs or even injectors so have a few things to try out! So looking forward to when my clutch situation is sorted and sorted the timing out [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Out of curiosity, can you find out the price of a DQ500 conversion? That's definitely one I'd love to do if I can afford it.
  5. Ok, if you can double check for me Monday it would be appreciated! [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah APR no longer do them for some reason? Never heard of a friction configuration, what’s that? Full Unicorn Map and DSG map but it’s on the max it can be and just starts to slip with one person right at the top end of 5th: heavy weight in the car it just slips on launch so hence needing a better clutch better rated for the torque. The car is currently running 452 ft-lbs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Oh that would’ve been annoying! Hope I don’t need to do that twice! Haha Sounds good to me [emoji106] Yeah I’ll have to have a look. Yeah I think Dodson it is! Thanks for your advice Damian Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Ok, that’s not too bad then. How long did you run yours in for? And did you sort the mapping straight away or after you bed the clutch in? Not sure about fitted on labour time but I can get the Dodson Sportsman for £1600 then plus whatever the fitting would be and oils etc. I saw TVS’ Race Clutch was €3000! Unless I’m looking at the wrong one? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Can you please clarify the bedding in? Thought you just take it steady for a while or is there something more involved with DSG? My DSG is on the limit off what it can be hence why looking to go for something more substantial. Dodson seem to be the best bet so far from what I’ve found and the cheapest.

  10. Yeah I watched it, that’s what it sounds like to me. Strange? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. And where about do you go to get the TVS one done? Aren't they based in the Netherlands? Yeah I might give them a call.
  12. Sound to me like it hitting the rev limiter for some reason, might not be but that's just my 2 pence.
  13. Hi all, Just out of curiosity, are any of you running an uprated clutch in your DQ250 transmission? Potentially looking in to it and wondered if anyone had any recommendations. I've seen Dobson Motorsports do one but not anyone else bar TVS Engineering. Thanks in advance
  14. Well after doing a few test runs with Rick yesterday I can definitely say that the times are going to be impressive! We will have to wait to see what Sunday brings !
