Well I'm running 9-6-9 on stage 2+ and 100oct RON at the moment and I'm going to attempt 9-7-9, hopefully with that I'll hit 370. If I was on custom tune I would bet you anything I would hit it and without w/m, it's a pretty standard number over here. But even on a ready-to-go tune such as Revo, I think with these settings it'll do the trick, or will be pretty close anyway. It's not like I'll be disappointed if I hit 365 to be honest. :smile:You expect to get 370 hp from that set-up without meth? I wish you luck, but I don't think you will hit that.
Thanks, I'm excited :happyanim:Sounds really, really awesome! :thumbsup:
(http://www.fordpower.org.uk/index.php?topic=10546.45)Grey mate forget about the wheel figures on MAHA dyno's or ones like them.
It's not a wheel figure like you understand it to be.
MAHA dyno's don't estimate the drag they actually measure it.
The tyre sits in between two small rollers & deforms a lot which creates huge drag!
Also drag increases with rotational speed not constant like most people or dyno calculations would have you believe.
I use a MAHA dyno, you set it up like most other dyno's but at the end of the run you dip in the clutch & let it coast down which don't take long as it's a resistance dyno.
It measures the drag from the clutch back including the huge drag at the tyres & then takes that away from the measured power that was calculated from a variable resistance setting calculated & controlled by time, then it gives you a wheel power figure but more importantly a crank figure that is actually measured rather than guessed!
For wheel figures they are useless for comparisons.
For crank figures they are probably the best chassis dyno on the market.
The MAHA 4wd dyno was developed in partnership with Audi/VW for their quattro cars & is the only dyno they recommend their cars to be used on. Even has an instruction manual & part numbers from Audi.
Also BMW, Merc. Porsche & Ferrari use them at the factories to test the high spec cars that come off the production line to see if they are within spec.
Makes them the only dyno they recommend too!
The crank figure will be with in 2% Jurgen unless the operator made a mistake which it don't look like it to me.
To sum up
MAHA wheel figures are useless for comparisons, crank figures are ultra accurate & are proven to be.
It's funny that you compare them to an aircraft propeller. I remember my friend comparing my NT01s in the same way. I've always wondered if the R888s were worth the money, looking forward to hearing your thoughts. I'm finding my RS-3s to be a good compromise for an all around tire, and no where near as terrifying when it gets wet out lol. Again same sentiment just wet is fine but standing water can be pretty sketchy.
I bet you have a 2nd set for the winter too :wink:Oh well, thought it was your daily first haha All good then!
A friend of mine has the cups on his Porsche 911 and yes rather loud but no biggie and nice grip when dry. Not so fun in the wet. I'm debating myself on what tires to get next for my Cupra. It's my daily so noisy tires are sadly a no-go for me.
I will most definitely write a review :smile: Those Nittos are semi-slicks too aren't they?It's funny that you compare them to an aircraft propeller.

I have a feeling those Yokos will become popular in years to comeI have Neova's on mine.
Pretty great in the dry (very close to the R888s) and good in the wet.
My cupra is my DD so it's exactly what I wanted.
