Hi was at Crail Drag strip at the weekend..had an amazin day, want to go back asap :-D
A good 7-8 cars and 2 bikes in our group, from S3 MTM to a Focus RS and Yahama R6.
After racing against similarly tuned cars - mk1 Cupra R with about 280bhp, an APR mk6 GTI DSG with a rollered 270.
After about 65-70 both easily pulled me once my traction advantage was lost. The Golf's DSG obviously gave it a big advantage also.
Part of the problem I found after I managed to get half decent launches was shifting quickly- the longish throw of the non-s3 shift was a hindrance, and my synchros were a bit sticky in 2nd/3rd.
However I do not think my map is getting the best out of my engine + mods, as I had already presumed.
Can easily hit 60 in the high 5s but once in 4th it definately needs more tails off a lot.
Looking at my time slip again only got a 14.7 on the 1/4 mile and best trap speed of 95 mph.
My Ł300 celtic map is can be improved upon clearly as its only a generic off the shelf stg1.
As you can see I have a GIAC Flashloader, and want to get it mapped soon. They have many different maps for my engine depending on your spec/mods.
First i am going to try run a map without a HPFP and see how it goes, with Stattler. Going to go for some runs with Steve i think while he takes some logs and see what he thinks of it currently.
Was wondering what people's experiences of GIAC are on this engine, and if anyone's had theirs roller'd or on the 1/4 mile ?
