    Ah! I think I saw you, couple of cars ahead of me at the lights, turned left to swing by the roundabout and back up towards gates?

    Default Finally in a VXR

    So, stage 3 upgrades are almost complete... just need the remap which is booked in for next week with SMTuning on the dyno.











    While I was there, had the 1.8L of GM gearbox oil dropped and replaced with 2.4L Fuchs Titan 75w80 oil

    How do you find the short shifter and different fluid?

    Night and day! I used to be conscious of almost every gear change, if I was enjoying the drive the shifting used to break me out of that enjoyment. Now, it's just like my old car. I change gear automatically, the car just obliges.

    Mines booked on Monday for the same, on my second gearbox and still not happy with the feel or change. It’s exactly as you describe, you’re constantly conscious of every change. Trying to adjust throttle, throw speed or clutch actuation so it doesn’t do something horrible and being you out of the zone! Everything else is perfect, just that bloody shift!

    Remap delayed... found a misfire which got worse as the engine heated up (so potentially spark plugs/coils). Getting those changed out then will go back for another go!

    Credit to Sean (SMtuning) for fitting me in again before Christmas, I trust his judgement in not wanting to map a car with an existing issue
