just been to a cruise and we had a liitle drag strip. 106 gti standard trim except for exhaust. i am at full stage 1 spec(chip, zorst filter) am running 16s though, also, he beat me on gear changes, i got the better start( still poor by my standards i think) he was level at at the end of first gear and pulling away in second. absoloutely nothing in it but i thought i would have eaten him! i think i am changing too late, my chip allows me to redline at 7500rpm, and i do when racing!! should i be changing earlier?? is there any power at 7500rpm?? HELP!!??
