  1. Full RR Racing upgrade package installed in Melb

    There are some pretty fast down hill quarter mile tracks in the US 😂

    Thx gents. This one was my second run and my best 60foot of the day. Not forgetting full tank and spare and *BLEEP* in the boot. I didn't even look at my tyre pressures either I was spewing with 12.3, I want 11s in the next run - it's all about the hole shot launch in my opinion - seemed to go better when I manually shifted at 7k too for the record

    see attached - note this is the quickest time slip for the day, the 1.8sec 60 foot time netted me a 12.4 funnily enough?! i can post that when i go home if anyone wants to see it

    First run I did was 12.3 at 188kmh - 1.86 60 foot track temp was warm too - full tank of juice and a bunch of work *BLEEP* in the boot - ran a few 12.4s after that - the trap speed says it's good for high 11s

    Haha great question, I don't know if I'll ever get used to it - I think the power matches the chassis/ brakes well now (I've done a few mods to the brakes too) in these days of hyper & electric cars with 100% torque at zero rpm, I love the fact that you can get an unexpected surprise and a built up rush when you plant it at 60kmh for example. In my opinion it's crazy and I love it as is. Without sounding like someone from A current affair, Anymore power would just be for track purposes and not usable on the road

    hi mate yes confirmed re that, the CEL lights were off and on randomly at which point i just putted around until i uploaded the tune but since the tune its been running perfect Took RR racing about 18hrs to review my map, and send me back their version via email

    unboxing at work (products were heavily insulated before i opened box and took pics)
  10. Hi all I'm surprised by the amount of questions and messages I've had since doing this, may as well collate them here for the community to see right? As above the whole kit (Headers, race intake, carbon elbow, oil/seperator, tune) was just installed and uploaded on my car about 24 hours ago and im just getting used to it my upgrade plan was all around doing the mods all at once (including tune),first impressions: turn key, engine light and traction light are on - sound is amazing with varex open, and somewhat subtle and classy with varex closed. these cars will run lean with the cats removed, so a tune is highly suggested, I have just uploaded RR,'s tune (last night), and im still getting used to it. repeat - you should tune your car to match the new mod, especially if you have an intake. suggestions to note: wrap the headers with exhaust wrap (i used 3 x 25 foot rolls) - be careful with the steering rack and remember where it is with regards to the rotation when you put it back together. I wouldnt be hooning around if your engine light is on, as that means its running lean - get a tune - talk to Simon at RR racing, tell him what you have fitted and he will send you a map. car is loud and sharp, revs freely, and all in all i think the engine is thriving from these mods went to a cafe this morning with my brothers, feeling punchy down low which makes manual mode even more relevant as you can plod around in a 5th/6th at low speed with ease - effortless and punchier power - change in power to weight is noticeable pretty much erases the "lag" it had in stock form below 3400rpm - once you go above 3400rpm however - wow wee - haven't found enough road to test the 7200rpm limiter - will be attending a Phillip island track day in Oct - save it till then Just want to give a shout to Simon and Rafi and crew - i was apprehensive about ordering the kit from the other side of the world (Aus) but everything happened smoothly, freight, service, follow up, quality - ive done some cool things to cars over the years, and dealt with a lot of work shops, RR Racing has given me an awesome experience so far - thanks chaps *fine print* i am in no way affiliated with RR racing nor receiving any benefit from posting this, I am just a car guy who did a lot of research on this car and kit as most of you are, especially if you have read this far in the post, happy to help ask or post any questions you have below regarding the kit or tune in Aussie conditions. ** below pic was taken before the intake breather was fitted hence the 2 breather hoses going nowhere on top of throttle body

    my upgrade plan was all around doing the mods all at once (including tune), so i never considered keeping the o2 sensors yes went to a cafe this morning with my brothers, feeling punchy down low which makes manual mode even more relevant as you can plod around in a 5th/6th at low speed with ease - effortless and punchier power - change in power to weight is noticeable pretty much erases the "lag" it had in stock form below 3400rpm - once you go above 3400rpm however - wow wee - haven't found enough road to test the 7200rpm limiter - will be attending a Phillip island track day in Oct - save it till then

    hahaha yes you are right, i have just trolled this topic havent i ok so first impressions: turn key, engine light and traction light are on - sound is amazing with varex open, and somewhat subtle and classy with varex closed. these cars will run lean with the cats removed, so a tune is highly suggested, I have just uploaded RR,'s tune (last night), and im still getting used to it. repeat - you should tune your car to match the new mod, especially if you have an intake. suggestions to note: wrap the headers with exhaust wrap (i used 3 x 25 foot rolls) - be careful with the steering rack and remember where it is with regards to the rotation when you put it back together. I wouldnt be hooning around if your engine light is on, as that means its running lean - get a tune - talk to Simon at RR racing, tell him ehat you have fitted and he will send you a map. car is loud and sharp, revs freely, and all in all i think the engine is thriving from these mods if done properly, highly recommend
