0-62 decrease
« on: April 03, 2011, 11:56:14 pm »
Having read a few polls but maybe missed this, could anyone give me any idea of the 0-62 times once re-mapped , compared to the standard t-jet 135 500 which i think is 7.9 secs. The only reason to ask is that now i have driven my new pride and joy for the two days i have owned her/him, (cant decide) pace is great but how much more great would be nice to know. Big thanks to anyone who can help.

    This video shows my tests after the TMC box was fitted. Road was wet however, hence why the wheels spin. I think it's around the 7 second mark.

    I find you can't get a true 0-60 as the wheels spin aaaaaaaaall the time. 2nd onwards is where its happening.

    Unless your on a track (private roadway) with timing equipment then your never going to get a true 0-62 time so all the videos of handheld phones / cameras are pointless comparisons.

    If you think that the TMC box takes the car to around SS level (bhp wise), and the SS was quoted as 0-62 at 7.4secs iirc then your not going to be far off that if you choose the TMC route as your upgrade.

    The only real way to find out though is via videobox recording, an OBDII connection to your iPhone or similar smartphone with required app or a RWYB timing at Santa Pod / Trax / Other generic car show.

    I got a best time of 6.8 seconds at Crail drag track with timing equipment, and mines an SS with a remap, probably around 170bhp.

    Struggled with wheelspin for quite a while and was getting mostly 7 - 7.2 seconds, but I found that if you leave the TTC button off then the wheels stop themselves from spinning at a high rev start, it de-powers the car initially but it gave better runs than wheelspinning completely in first and up to about 30-40mph in 2nd.

    So I guess you could hope for about 7.2 seconds with a remap

    Thanks for all the feedback, I have informed my insurance i may be thinking of the TMC BOX to which they replied "we wont be able to insure you with this mod because it will increase BHP from standard". So i enquired at several other companies and the insurance prices nearly doubled on what im paying now even without the TMC upgrade.Im a bit disillusioned now because the idea of paying loads more insurance really doesnt appeal as i have paid enough over the years ( EX-4X4). Does anyone know of a friendly insurance co that understands motorists needs. Im currently paying £364 fully comp, protected no claims, etc etc.

    Who are you currently with?

    Aviva have covered me with my TMC.  Was a struggle getting across what I had actually done to the car (overseas callcentre  :-X ), but once they'd spoken to the underwriters it was all sorted  :thumb:
