Hi Ivor,

Currently 1 hour behind schedule...

This is mainly because the interiors werenโ€™t all removed in advance. Please can you ensure that the passenger seat is removed along with the handbrake cover ๐Ÿ‘

Massive thanks to Jacek for been patient, Jon for organising and letting me in last minute and RLM racing for letting us use a very well stocked garage and tool kits and Ralph for just hanging around.

Was dry on the way home so didn't really get much chance to try out the tcs but the 'launch control' seemed to work well.

this was defo a bargain price for an install and hope Jaceks company can get some momentum going forward.

A big thankyou to Jacek for coming all the way from Poland to help install his product.
Also a big thankyou to Richard at RLM Racing for the venue which was an awsome place to carry out the weekend works.
A big thankyou to Jon aka turboboy for organising this weekend which has gone pretty well ๐Ÿ˜‰

No problem on the venue guys....was good to meet you all. Very impressed with the product tbh and the way it was fitted and worked instantly on every car. You could tell Jacek was very confident in his product, good to see ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ.

Iโ€™ll certainky be fitting my unit over the coming months

It was really nice to meet all these positive people. Time well spent this weekend.
Richard, i will get some sleeping bag and move over to your workshop :). Great place. Thank you very much.
Jon - thanks for arranging everything. Good planning and keeping everyone up to date.

Looking forward to hearing opinions after you test it in the wet.

  Another massive thanks from me to everyone one involved!  Despite being outside in the dark Sat night, Jacek continued working late again until Dan's and my cars were both completed.  

 

   Better thank my better half as well, she can now remove a VX passenger seat far quicker than me..  :blush:

We have variable selection, so need a slider or rotating knob.

Had a track day today, during the noise test we had to rev the car to 4500, I had a misfire at just over 4000. Previously the car drove fine. Cleared the codes and disabled TCS, car revs fine. Is this misfire when the car is revved but not moving a symptom of TCS?

Don't think so re clutch pedal but can't be sure, on the road earlier I floored the throttle to overtake and engine was fine, so I was thinking launch control as the misfire was only there over 4000rpm and car not moving

This is startrpm limit, before you reach preset speed (like 20kmh) you have rpm limit to avoid burning rubber at start. If you disable tcs by pot this limit is inactive. In manual there is a graphic illustration of when each limiter is active.

Thank you! To dry today to test TCS, and yes, used the pot to disable the TCS then misfire cleared when static

Hi guys,

 

DIY guide is available , please see that post http://www.vx220.org...etcs/?p=1964980

I would like all technical discussion to happen in that linked topic, so that any newcomers will find it easier to get technical information. 

Let us know if the guide is clear enough or requires some more information to be added :).

 

Jacek
