Red dot rolling road & re-mapping day: 22-08-2009
Apologies if I appeared a little out of it, I was knackered after a night shift, arrived at Red Dot at about 09:00 left around 11:00, drove home to St Leonards, back at work for 19:00... was it really all worth it.
Dear God... WAS IT WORTH IT!!!
This is a different car (GT 1.9 JTDm), the power/torque increase is simply sensational. Went from 161 Hp at the fly to 199, and 258 ft-lb torque to 343.
It's a bit buttock clenching seeing one's baby strapped down onto the rolling road, fired up and pressed hard up to something around 110mph, VDC and ABS LED's going crazy on the display, cloud of black smoke pouring from the exhaust, motorised fan placed in front of the car screaming.
Normally after a night shift the car takes me home... eh - how did I get here. Not this time, I drove it all the way - get your self a remap, you will not regret it.
Thanks to all at Red Dot
