  1. Anybody else tested any type if fuels?
  2. What if i ran PANTA 98 Ron race fuel which is 98 octane like pump unleaded byt being a packaged product would have way more consistency and more oxygen content? Would this prevent more potential knock on hillclimb to avoid power drop?
  3. Anyone else here tried race fuel for track days in a stock exige v6 supercharged?
  4. Thats good to know. What brand 100 did you use?
  5. Hello all.... I have a hill climb event coming up. 3km uphill stage attacked 7 times with time added up from all 7 runs together Has anyone tried race fuel in their exige? I have a exige 410 sport which is stock engine wise. Has anyone tried a race fuel like VP C9 racing which is 98 RON(95Mon). I think just by common sense that a 100 ron or 102 ron fuel would be a waste as the car isnt tuned for it. Has anyone had experience with a race fuel that has 98 ron octane? VP C9 os 98 ron with a high MON value of 95 but zero oxygen content. Would a 98 ron race fuel like PANTA 98 ron with 2.7% oxygen provide better power due to oxygen content?? ELF also make a 102 ron race fuel which they state can be used in cars tuned for 98 unleaded. This fuel has 3.7% oxyhen content So options are VP C9 - 98 ron, 0% oxygenated Elf race 102 - 102 ron, 3.7% oxygenated Panta 98 - race 98 ron, 2.66% oxygenated What do ppl think? Anyone tried anything else? Help much appreciated. The hill climb is reasonably steep
  6. Its definately the brake pedal switch. Mine did the same thing in first 1000kms of ownership. I also had a problem with the earth cable coming lose on body causing electrical faults. A new brame switch and reconnection if earth cable and trouble free driving since
  7. The carbon profile, shape etc is the same. The 430 wing uprights can have 3 settings of angle. I dont think 380 uprights have that, however even though i have the 380 uprights in a box i never checked as i used the 430 ones from the get go. Id have to go into my boxes to find this out Pmed you
  8. When conducting these tests, the alarm was off and all doors closed so the instrument cluster may be drawing battery from the red flashing led. When i did remove the F20(cooling fan fuse) and left F19(instrument cluster) plugged in, the battery draw was below 0.03 which is normal and wont let a battery get flat. I suspent there is an issue with cooling fan drawing battery power when car is off and test being done with car having sat for few days. I was more curious to see if others had conducted multimeter tests to see what an exige draws from battery........
  9. Sorry for confusion. Prior to pulling the 2 fuses F20 and F19, the reading on my multimeter is always 0.06. The multimeter is set to 10AMP setting. Once i pull those 2 fuses, the reading drops to 0.01 and 0.02. Going by youtube videos, they say most cars should be using 25 milliamps which is 0.025 when multimeter is set to 10amps
  10. Hello, i wow a 410 sport which i drove once a week and after about 8 months my battery died. I have had the dealer since revive the battery and i now keep it on constant trickle charge with a ctek and just to note, i have standard battery, not the lithium I just bought a lightweight industries touge 500 lithium battery that weighs 3.8kg. I thought that since im putting in lightweight battery it wouldnt hurt just to test of there is a parasitic draw on standard battery, so i hooked up a multimeter and it read a constant 0.05 to 0.06 milliamps. Me and a mate starting pulling fuses and we noticed once we pulled all fuses there was no change in amp draw exclooept for 2 fuses. Positions F20 and F19 fuses once removed, the amp draw dropped to 0.01 miliamps. If i kept f19 in and only removed f20 it would drop to 0.3. If i kept f20 in and removed f19 only, it would drop to 0.02 milliamps. And like a obove, with both removed, amp draw was 0.01 milliamps F20 = cooling fans F19 = instrument cluster lights If i kept f20 and f19 in, the amp draw was 0.06 as said above, but if we removed M5(battery fuse) the amp draw would drop to 0.01 milliamps. We suspected this was due to removing black terminal whilst performing this test with multimeter but im no autoelectrician so not sure. Anyone out there know if this is normal amp draw at 0.06 or is their an an electrical fault with cooling fan and instrument cluster. The test was performed with alarm off and all doors closed etc Before i install lithium battery i want to be sure my car hasnt got a parasitic drain
  11. Was this evija painted in liquid pearl yellow?? Im a little biased towards the colour....looks very similar
  12. if it looks like this...i really am going to need one!
