      Default RS 265 Piggy Back?

      Hi Guys, I have just purchased an RS265 Trophy+ and am interested in a tuning upgrade. Has anyone had any experience with the RaceChip Ultimate piggy back tuning box. Living in Sydney, plug and play makes it easy and website is very informative. Any feedback from real life experience would be appreciated.
      P.S. The reason for the choice of a piggy back is because it is quick to remove as the car has less than 4,000ks on the clock and 4yrs warranty still left.

      Hi Axel.
      I successfully used this on mine.

      http://www.tmcmotorsport.com/TuningB...SID=3431288105

      However these do not seem at all popular in the UK and not sure why.
      I took mine off after I changed car. It was going to be re configured for and Audi [cost of a loom only] but I have not.
      Offered it for sale at a silly price for 9 months now. No interest.

      You might get more replies on RSmegane.com site

      Cheers Andy

      Hi Andy, thanks for your reply. I'm guessing you had a TMC Motorsports Tuning Box. I've just checked out their website and like their product. Did you have your car checked on a dyno after fitment? ( power? - torque? - fuel? ) Were you totally satisfied with the improved driveability? Did you have any issues? Your reply would be greatly appreciated. Regards Alex.

      P.S. No joy on RSmegane.com, your the only one so far.

      Yes it was fine.
      BUT never dynoed it
      Massive torque but lag. Turned it down and played with settings [9 there were ] arrived on 6 but ended up on 2.
      9 was wild 1 was mild. Ran out of revs very quick and hit limiter very quick.
      The guy is very helpful on the phone and sent me all the PDF's for fitting and results etc.
      He is in Northern Ireland.

      Sorry I did not see the post on rsmegane.com]

      Cheers Andy

      Thanks Andy, I'll get in contact with TMC and I think I might give it a go. Thanks again for your help.

      Regards Alex.
