Im sure the mad scientist will work something out for the AGU. I will hopefully be down in a few works nick to sort flat spot out, something dodgey going on with my boost. On the way home in 5th gear it only boosted to 18psi and then a massive drop off to 11 psi, foot off throttle and then back on and it holds at 15 psi :undecided:

so whilst sort the issue you could use my agu to do some test.

other than that, those of you with AUM's i have felt and seen the launch control first hand and you will all like it. just make sure you have a strong clutch  :grin:

The launch allows the car to start moving under low load then the full power once a set km/h has been reached (between 1.25 -3.5km/h, and vs doing it with clutch control is night and day... :wink:

The way the car launch's can be set up to how the car wants, anywhere from say 4000rpm upto 7000rpm. Nick is working on getting part power between 1-2k rpm and then onto full power once traction is there.

saves buying any expensive add-on hardware like a wot-box
