    Re: speed!!

    170 MPH? I didn't know they had the torque to pull that. What setup are you running.

    PS I am right aren't I 272km/h then devide by 1.6 to get 170mph?

    Well 169 to be correct. But a more accurate readout of that speed would be on the CC, but i found at that ort of speed looking at the CC was probably as stupid as taking a photo [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img] Think my speedo was between 5 and 10 km/h out at speeds of 255 km/h (So speedo actually read over 260)....which is not too bad.

    I would say that that has to be down hill, to get that reading on the speedo, and one hell of a stretch of open road.

    Even the CC is only as accurate the accuracy of other cvariables on the car i.e tires .etc.

    The law is +10%, -0% for the limits. Most read high.
    Most accurate for the average person is to use road angel or something like that!

    Re: speed!!

    Regardless of the speedo reading, it's still bloody quick!

    140mph on my car works out at 133mph on my Road Angel which is +5%.

    As strange as this may seem but when reading my speedo in km/h it just doesn't seem as fast as if it was in mph...how's that for a psychological block! Even when I'm cruising at 200 km/h I don't think [censored] I'm going far to fast, but if it was 120mph on the speedo I would.... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    That's it, but it's kinda strange as most of the countries I use cars in are in km/h and only in the states and the UK do I use mph.....

    Re: speed!!

    The plots are all fecked up as far as I'm concerned, as it appears that you have no usable torque. Your tourque curve should bear no relation to the hp on a good remap and should definately not spike like that.

    460Nm is a disproportionate amount of torque for an S3 with only 280hp......it just isn't right and is proven in the RR plots. Just take a look at some of the plots in the rolling road graphs section to see what I mean.

    1.71 bar is very high and the peak torque is way off where it should be in my opinion and peaks and tails off far too quickly to make it usable.
