so i just been testing the tune yesterday since it wasn't raining and the road is "dry enough".
3rd gear is incredible, 4th gear is amazing, 2nd gear has so much torque. going to have to learn to control it in order to use it. but if you stamp the foot down in 2nd the wheels will spin so hard. might need new Tyre's soon. wallet hurts.

handling mods will be my next stop

Nice, can you adjust the tune?
What tyres / brands you running? Most seem to rave about the pilotsport 4s.

I've still got some Goodyears on 2 ( not the original) just about worn out. Will go Bridgestone or the PS4s
Have heard ( with my ST anyway)= stock. torque is limited in 1st and 2nd to help people with tracton.

Again with mine have heard a Cobb rear /diff mount makes a world of difference with tracton/bunnyhopping/drive.
You're also not helping my resolve to not mod mine :D:D

i can only change the maps that i have been given with the handset which is 3 in total.

not sure on the brand. but tyres are pretty decent and can handle pretty well in stock form. with the tune i will have to upgrade the handling.
even in stock the XR5 would constantly struggle for traction in second, with this tune it has doubled easily. however you can bypass it if you at first take it easy and then hit harder slightly after the initial bite.

an LSD is something i will look into in the future. but not now. does wonders i hear

she is a good car from factory. but man.... you are missing out BIG time!! you gotta open her up.
and also......... ......






























Sorry not sorry

also another thing i noticed, the heavier i use it because of the tune. the more fuel i use. the pull more power out. but if i keep calm and drive normally the fuel economy will increase from what it was before. gonna be a little harder now. but i will have to push myself to restrain.
AND AGAIN!!.....

Yeah Turbo 4s stay off the throttle / lite on = good/great economy.
Get into them all the time and they drink like a V8 .

yep, unfortunately most cars that have any sort of performance potential will have the set back of being thirsty when the throttle is being hit hard. unless it is an N/A motor like the older Civic Type R. i hear they are pretty good. but anything with a turbo with performance is bound to go up in fuel. i also hear the fiesta ST and Polo GTI are okay as well. they also have smaller motors too
