well.. I will reccomend RC 1 or 2 to anybody. it is simply amazing.. The nice thing about it is at full power I do get a little smoke so I can "do the James Bond thing" to the tailgaters..

speaking of which, when is your next gtg? I got some free time and will let ya'll give the rc a try

speaking of which, I won the panzer skid plate in the tdifest raffle, will probably install that soon too

I did some reading on ths a few weeks ago and it seems pretty amazing what it will do, I am curious, how big a job was/is it to install and any big kicker to your mpg?

took 20 minutes. with the A4 golf/Jetta, they hooked up a scanner to the diagnostics port under the steering wheel, downloaded the firmware (computer software that runs the car) to a laptop computer, then they uploaded the rocketchip Stage 2 firmware to my car, one in which rocket chip's owner, Jeff Robertson modified himself in front of me to be specific to my car. and voila, I can roast my tires through intersections :D

very simple and easy, it can most likely be reversed if wanted (I'm guessing here) but who the heck would want to take it off? :rolleyes:
