    We are pleased to introduce our new totally unique map switching function. This allows for up to 5 different maps to be selected instantly without the use of any additional hardware.

    The driver turns on the ignition, and presses the pedals in a certain combination, which causes the map to be switched. The current map is then displayed on the rev counter to provide feedback. Press the pedals again, and you switch to the next map set.

    Once the engine is started, the rev counter reverts to normal operation. The last selected map is stored so that it is remembered for the next time the engine is started.

    Examples of maps include valet mode, methanol injection tune, Race fuel tune, high boost drag tune.

    Why methanol as you would need over twice the amount methanol than normal V-max to get most out of this setting

    It all depends on what's being done, but typically and additional map will be an extra £100
