Hey all. Been lurking on and off for a while, finally thinking it's time to dive in and actually start equipping myself, especially now that I have a faster car that seems like it's going 15mph slower than it really is. I've somehow never gotten a speeding ticket in nearly 20 years of driving (a few talked down to warnings or non-moving violations), and I'd like to keep it that way!

Here's the car - Mk7 Golf R, stage 1 (pushing about 355bhp, gets to 60 somewhere just south of 4 seconds)

Welcome to RDF! I love the car, the Golfs have always looked so fun to drive. Maybe I'll get a chance some day.

I cheated a bit and posted a rec request before posting here - had an old lurker account so I sidestepped the requirement to post here first

Thanks! The R is indeed a hoot. The GTI is actually surprisingly close with the performance pack unless it's wet or for digs. That said, you can't argue with a simple ECU tune bringing you up above 100hp/ton (and a replacement drivetrain warranty!)
