I dont believe its re-programmed unless its for something like accounting for no air con, which isnt really a difference. It produces the same power/torque at the same revs after all. Throttle response is only better because the cars lighter.
Well, according to PGTi (I have the article in front of me now) they reckon the Cup does have an 8000rpm redline?!Quote: Originally posted by CUPSIZE? on 25 February 2003
No the cup they used was standard - I think that was the whole point of the feature to see how it compares against heavily modded 172s! but it maybe wasnt - coz I know for sure my rev limit is not 8000rpm? Jas might know ?
What was the lap time for the Cup and the standard 172 then???Quote: Originally posted by Twit on 25 February 2003
Autocar said the Cup was much more naughty than the 172 and Evo tested it as 2 seconds quicker round Bedford with a racing driver.
