Toying with the idea of swapping my stage 2 for a stage 4.  Anyone own a stage 4 in Yorkshire who is willing to give me a pax ride, as I've not experienced Stage 4.

Not from the area but can comment, stage 2-4 isn’t much different in the first 2 gears.
Stage 4 has much more mid range, 3rd and 4th gear pull a lot harder.
So if u are only doing 20-60mph sprints won’t notice that much, but if u do 60-100mph+ you will notice a big difference.

Stage 4 can bite especially in the wet but it’s well fun when it hooks up

I’m in Newark.

Happy to help if I can?

I would agree with the comments above.

I would also add that stage 2 is the sweet spot for road driving. Stage 4 makes the car a lot more edgy...

I know what you mean, sounds like you may have a Courtenay/Klassen map. However, the torque onset can be mapped out nicely by a few specialists such as RnD and Rabid. Wider rear tyres, less pressure in them & correct camber to allow a bigger footprint on the tarmac help a good deal too.

As above, maps have come along a long way since the old days. Proper custom mappers such as Rich at Rabid allow you to choose how the torque come in etc.. and makes it much more smooth and usable. 

My stage 4 grips in first gear in the dry due to a decent map.Power is much more manageable. 


So many people have aggressive maps that feel fast but just dont work well as they spin up or hit you to hard with a spike of boost.
