LOl, heard this all before RObbo...... all before

That's the thing Pete, it has just enough stock power to keep people engaged and be a real weapon when driven well. I'd have it tuned more for fuel mixture and ignition safety than to try to get decent power gains.

why would you bother with it so good out of the box?  i know...i know...
May 24, 2016, 07:28:18 PM
just because of the cast pistons.

I think Ford screwed nearly as much as possible from the MK3 RS at 350hp so don't expect tuners to grab big gains from it. I reckon it will need a rebuilt bottom end and bigger turbo to make a good improvement. The MK2 RS would be over 400hp at the equivalent mechanical engine danger, and just beca

Was just watching in car video of a new RS at Nurburgring and wow, that is a mentally capable car. So needs a nice 5 pot to colplete the aural appeal, but for actual fast driving, it is seriously good!

Same thing here with xtreme kit. 1st or R is not user friendly.

Had the amusement watching my son try to move my car in the driveway. Anyone who's driven it with the solid, light flywheel and S60R clutch would understand. It's rather like a brass button clutch. Very hard to slip.

Indeed Damo, but it will pick up. At least I feel I'm moving forward with the FrankenMako project 😛

A shite few days for you Robbo, hope your weekend picks up bud!

Spoke to soon, Telstra had been hit by a destructive 12 year old kiddy who lit a fire in a connection pit at Purfleet. Communications are still badly disrupted all over the coast.

Yay, home phone and internet, plus mobile is all back Tongue

Cheers, and to add more to the hassles, we had a big power outage in town and then Telstra died too. Mobile and home services. We have mobile back this morning but not home.

Just a quick note to welcome crispymk2 to the Mod Squad!  Thumbsup

For those that can remember, our previous Mod from the west was Kashmir Mafia, but since he moved on from the XR5 scene some time ago it seemed an official presence was lacking for the WA member base.

crsipymk2 has been a valuable contributor to the forum for quite some time. His primary role will be to keep an eye on the WA section of the forum and update databases etc. He is also keen to organise more gatherings for local members. Good news for all.

Thanks for jumping on board Crispy!  Smiley

Hey All,

Just a quick one to let you know the downtime we've been copping lately should come to an end as of now as we've moved host.  Cool

The almighty Sir Pezzalot has moved us to a new, beefy host. For those tech inclined we're now residing in Amazon's AWS Cloud - so here we are, all modern and gone full whack cloud computing. We'll be monitoring performance over the next days, weeks and months to see how things go.  Thumbsup

Actual software / feature updates are in planning and we'll let you guys and girls know when we're going to pull the trigger on that. Worth noting that we're considering a bit of a feature clean up and re-build on a new platform that will most likely be an inclusive process from your end. We want to strip things back, do the upgrade and target great performance and usability with the community features we all really want so your feedback as we bounce through this process will be useful and sought after.

Cheers,
Miyagi
