00:00 - Before we go any further it's worth taking a moment to talk about the risks involved with road tuning.
00:06 Obviously these risks are a little bit higher than tuning a car on the dyno.
00:10 We need to always concentrate on maintaining control of the vehicle but when we're road tuning we also need to be able to view and take note of the data from a wide-band Air/Fuel ratio and we may also need to be able to view and make changes to a laptop screen while we're driving the car.
00:29 Now, if we have an accident while we're driving it may result in injury or even death so it is very serious and we need to understand the implications of our actions.
00:39 For these reasons I always recommend performing a road tuning on a closed road or a race track which is what we're going to be doing here.
00:48 If you're not comfortable with driving the car while making tuning changes you can also employ the help of a friend to physically drive the car so you can concentrate solely on what's going on on the laptop screen.
01:01 Now particularly when you're just getting started tuning on the road it does require some specialized driving techniques and initially these are going to feel unnatural and they're going to take some time to master and become proficient in.
01:17 During this time you're going to require to use more concentration than what you would be using for just simply driving the car on the road.
01:26 So you need to understand the requirements of road tuning and the potential implications if we make a mistake.
