    Let us see your Peak Output Screens!

    Please add your type (sport/non-sport), model (1.5 / 2.0 / 2.5 ), tire type and pressure. I'm curious to see the individual peaks of each Roadster.

    My first attempt:
    Non-Sport / 2.5 (2010) / Yoko Advan Ad07 / pressure according to manual.

    (I was rewarded with this :eek::biggrin::rolleyes: - by the time I had the cam out, PEM/Motor already dropped down one yellow.)

    With my winter tires I get only 0,56 g, my wife says the reason are not the tires but my weight, she might be right:redface:

    i got 229kW, that's more then the spec, but only 248hp. Does someone know the conversion rate? your image shows 270max, means only 18 left?

    Conversion rate of what? Did you mean 229ftlb?
    229kW would be 307hp
    248hp is 185kW.

    If you want to convert ftlb to HP then you need to know RPM too.

    no i get up to 229kW displayed, if i switch over to the last screen with the peak values i only can see 248 hp. Do you make the conversion with 1.36? isn't this metric?

    I hit the 272lft evey time (272lbft is exact the number from specs). So I assume that the torque is limited - which brings out the old discussion about sport / non-sport only having only different firmwares...

    me, new rims are to expensive, and I was lucky, that there was a curb which kept the car on the road but crashed the rims. Otherwise I would have tested how good the Roadster is at lawn moving.:wink:

    Are you guys taking photos right at the moment of peak output, or is this showing a telltale of the max achieved?
    If it is "after the fact" what VDS sequence do you use to get that screen?

    Here's mine:
    attachment.php?attachmentid=1556.jpg

    2.5 Roadster in Performance mode
    AD07 tires 33 front/45 rear
    TC on and off gave the same numbers
    250lbs person plus cargo

    TEG,
    The button that says "REAL TIME" above toggles "real time" and "max" mode which keeps the maximum values for that drive - I believe it's reset each time you power down.
