          Yup and feels even stronger on the road. I was in a bit of a rush so haven't compared this tune to previous ones in detail, but mid range torque feels a heap stronger and overall the engine feels to be doing things 'easier' if that makes sense?

            Stupid GoPro was playing up so this is the only vid i got for the day. Issues with front end grip, so i was 2 seconds off my PB for the day Midrange is awesome with the E85 tune...so much so i was getting wheelspin *down* the hill Lots of wheelsin in this vid

                Yeah warm track and my A032Rs on the front as well The old D03G's just weren't up to it...tyre pressures only went up 0.5 degree, even with the 2 laps...just no temp and no grip

                  Hell yes!

                  Sounds like you have some revs on board! Whats your redline set at?

                    Seeing as how you cant get heat into them, did you set your cold tyre pressure to match your optimum hot pressure? I tried doing that but was not really good or consistent enough to find if it helped. (Then I lunched an engine.... )

                    I'd love to drive a car on *proper* hardcore hillclimb tyres like those kitchen sponge type soft Avons...

                      Yeah if only i could afford to trash a set of the Avons per event

                      I started them around 28psi cold in the hope of 30-31 psi hot. If you run them 31psi cold they are shit so no point trying. I was tempted to try them lower again in hope of working the sidewall harder and getting some heat but the 2 lapper is a tough event for setup....if it ain't right at the start then you'll struggle all day

                      rev limit is set at 6800 Millsi...didn't get close to the limiter

                        That's some beast you got there! Revs really quick too. Nice.

                            Some footage from a recent track day at Wakefield...last 2 laps the rear slicks delaminated and things got a wee bit taily

                                So breaking news. Back on the dyno to sort out a weird lean spot that developed. Ramped up the new boost controller too On 14psi the car reeled off 365rwkw and just kept making more power the more timing we added. Still more left in it but i feel for the stock bottom end so didn't pump the ign adv boundaries any further. We did wind up the boost though. On 17psi.....
