hi metal micky08
with all that power does it go in a straight line when you give it a bit of gas or does it just spin up and go where it wants?
just asking as i have a 2.0 tdci which torque steers all over the place when i use a heavy foot.
I don`t have traction control or esp,so I have to be careful.I tend to set the box on 3 for normal town use,but if I`m combining town & duel carrigway I put it on 5.For mailt dc driving 7 & if m/ways then 9.In the wet or icey weather I keep it on 3 or even 0.The power delivery is great,I tend to take it easy in 1st,even pulling away in 2nd.3rd & 4th are great but I find the beat advantage is on dc or m/way when in 6th gear.Say I`m doing 55 in 6th,just brush the acc pedal & I can be up to 75/80 VERY quickly
.I have suprised lots of sports cars & powerful saloons (great fun baiting BMW & Audi coupe`s) not to mention ST Focus`s.
sounds just what my c max needs as you change gear and then it realises its in gear then the lag starts to disapear then it goes. 55 mph in 6th blimey i dont go below 70mph in 6th or at least 65mhp. think the max would benifit from a better re mapping as its a bit funny at times with its power delivery and its gearing. may look into it again but wasnt sure about the tunit box
