Thanks Nitro.

the video I took I crawled around up to the point I started and then was stationery....im just wanting to know at exactly what point to start the stopwatch.... i.e. the moment before the revs go up...the moment before the speedo needle moves?

will look at that mate thanks :)

I spoke to Henry earlier on (thanks for the tips mate).......found this video on how to do the stall method, though being American they call it a ''brake stand''

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ot8PwenuF2o

just googling around, it appears that doing this wont affect the tranny. im still a bit scared to do this. do I need to turn the TC off also?

TC off otherwise the ecu cuts the fuel... which kind of defeats the point ::)

I did it with my Mig and the Signum,Signum was shite as mine didn't have a nanny over ride switch,I've not felt the need to try it on 2.5 tonnes of Vw though ::)

I presume you mean the sugnum had no TC button?

I also presume nothing went bang ?  ;D

out of interest did you see an improvement in acceleration specifically on the mig between ''stall approach'' and normal flooring it? sorry im being a bit anal about it but just trying to ensure this is the fastest way possible befpre I decide to wreck my gearbox  ;D :)

Who knows, but it was producing a shit load more torque than the AR25 could cope with
