Re: remap dci 1.9

its all about the :grin
i agree with the best thing being a full remap, stronger clutch/flywheel, maybe a little improvement with the respiration (in/out)of the engine?

whats your mpg like after your remap etc. 160bhp sounds fun.

remap dci 1.9

Re: Clutch Problem

Hi Allan, sorry to hear about your problem, my problem was when the spring broke and sat at an awkward angle not allowing the pedal to return to its normal place causing the clutch to slip as if the pedal was continuously pressed half way but this did not change the biting point at all, however in y...

Re: Grip!!!

just an idea; have a look at your rear dampers to make sure that they arent leaking or anything, if one corner isnt damping properly/relative to other corner then can also allow the rear end to step out while your off the power on a turn???
