Benefits of remap?

Post by enuff_zed » Wed Sep 15, 2021 7:57 am

I know his name should not be mentioned any more ( :roll: ) but if you search back through PBondar's posts, he did a comprehensive assessment of remaps on the N20, including rolling road print outs etc.
Indeed the bar room bragging rights of BHP are a little pointless but the torque delivery is a huge revelation. They all differ slightly, due to the actual car, the rolling road used, atmospherics on the day, fuel, etc.
For me it was the fact that the torque rose to well above it's previous maximum by 1500rpm and stayed perfectly level until nigh on 5000rpm. Even then it did not drop back to it's previous maximum until over 6000rpm.
It is that torque delivery that makes the car so much more fun to drive.

I'm sure someone said you could? But no, you can't.
Would need to search the thread.

‘Twas me :D

Go into search, put *bondar* in search author, results 4177. And yes you’d then need to further search/scroll through the posts but everything is there and findable :thumbsup:

    Doesn't work for me. Just comes up as "no suitable matches found".

    Did you use the astrix? I think it comes up no results if you use either Pbondar or just bondar.

    I only did that search a minute or so before the post so it’s definitely working.

    Maybe I have magical powers, or maybe you’re previously blocked by the user???

    Don’t know enough about how the forum works with the friends and foe thing and if you can stop people seeing/searching your posts??? Never had the need to so no idea tbh

    EDIT: just tried it again and it worked.

      Done it! It was the asterix; I was using speech marks. That's bizarre as there is now no advantage to him deleting his profile.
      How dare you suggest that someone may 'block' me? :P
      It doesn't work with the full name, only without the P :?
