LOL paying cash makes no difference, if they are not ready then there not ready. Roman already said they are working on 25 kits so you need to be patient. Even I paid cash but I was lucky to get the second one after RPi.

On the other hand, with our Stg 3 package with the Ess kit, the car drive very similiar to OEM. You will not know there is an extra 150hp+ over stock until you get on it hard. Throttle response is much better than before and there is also an improvement in fuel consumption. Joe from Trinity is coming over tomorrow morning and we will be putting this thing on the dyno around 11am If you guys are local and want to watch, just give me a ring tomorrow.
Eloy I posted this on my other thread when doing the vbox runs, the SMG takes so long to move into gear (.5-.8secs), would be nice if it could be programmed to shifter a little quicker.

What is this RPi stage 3 package you speak of, I thought the highest you had was stage 2?

Dont forget UK and AUS cars not the same as USA.


Eloy footage would be nice and some in and outside car runs. Cant believe neither you, ACG or ESS have footage against other cars to show how quick the kits are. Can only help to promote...

I just received my GoPro today, there will be videos but you have to plan these runs and that is the hard part when you have a fulltime job and family. Please give us a chance.
