    MK7.5 OEM LED Tails

    As soon as I read this I knew exactly what happened. I had some work done on that boot as I broke a clip when installing the harness and it was leaking. The tech who put the car back together put the black connector mostly all the way in, but not quite. A quick reseat of the little black...

    MK7.5 OEM LED Tails

    I noticed the other day that the two lights on the right hand side of my car both have developed issues. The right inner running light (the always on red one) has stopped working, as has the right outer turn signal light. I have mk7.5 R with euro tails and a zero815 harness. What tests can I...

    Been a hot minute since I posted an update. new wheels and tires fitted on the car today. Apex SM-10 17x8.5 with Michelin PS4S 235/45R17. Such a great visual combo and I'll definitely be turning back to look again when I park up. so the story with these wheels… memorial day weekend was my...

    Carbotech XP10 fitment issues - 2019 MK7.5 Golf R

    I've been quite happy with the performance of the Ferodo pads (they're all I know so perhaps stockholm syndrome?). I was up at VIR with Chin 3 weeks ago and ran an almost uninterrupted 75 min session. After 30 mins or so I could really begin to the limits of the stock brake setup even with these...

    Track TEMP DATA: IC and radiator combo data collection - ALL YOUR LOGS ARE BELONG TO US!

    If track time wasn’t so expensive I’d offer to put the stock IC back in but ain’t no one got time for downgrades.

    Track TEMP DATA: IC and radiator combo data collection - ALL YOUR LOGS ARE BELONG TO US!

    Proof that upgrading your intercooler works. Stock IC, lower ambients, up to -8 of timing. Using the IEv2 IC, same track, same car, the only mechanical change is the IC and even with higher ambients we only see -2.2deg in a 40! minute session. 3 logs in attached zip. first log is the first 40...

    EQT E-Tuning Q&A

    93 atm. I’m just going to go with factory tune on track this weekend. The EQT sawce is a bit spicy.

    Heat problems on track: TECH. Read before adding an oil cooler!

    I'd be down for chipping in a little for some actual tunnel time to test some parts out. https://a2wt.com/motorsports

    I'm enjoying how this thread has been completely and totally hijacked into recruiting OP for any and all track events except his original posting.

    Tuned Golf 7R Hot Climate Market?

    Stock intercooler runs out of steam pretty quick when tuned. It's fine for a pull or two but not much more.

    EQT E-Tuning Q&A

    There's some conversation about it this thread - but it's also in that attached log file from my previous post here. That's exactly it. I'm not after spicy on track. I'm after consistent! If you've got time to talk me through your calibration (maybe not in this thread) that'd be very handy.
