    Thumbs Up Dreamscience ASTRA VXR Update.

    Hi Guys and Gals

    I thought it would be a good time to give you all an update on what we are doing and of course some background on where we have come from and who we all are.

    Alot of you may have seen us at the PVS show last month with the big blue and black spider tent with the rolling road in the middle making lots of noise. That was our official launch in to the Vauxhall market and our first product is our Astra VXR device which we have been supplying since, we have had some small teething problems with the first firmware version of the handset, this has been updated on Tuesday this week and we are alot happier with it. The previous version didn't allow customers to flash from one tune to another without flashing back to stock first. Now the new firmware allows customers to flash straight from one map to another. We have also renamed the 3 tunes on the device to run along side our Ford ST range, thay are now called

    Race, Race+ and DS-Ultima

    The next update we are doing is intergrating the sports button with all our tunes so you can flick between std and performance mode instantly, this will give customers the option of not only flashing fully back to stock, and 3 varying performance tunes to choose from but also the sports button option. The next update after this is on device user adjustments, this will give our customers the ability to adjust specific parameters on the device and then load these in with their desired tune, (We supply all devices with a pc cable so future updates are easy), examples of user adjustments are,

    Boost, Idel speed, RPM, AFR (Fuel) Fan speed, timing, tyre size etc

    These user adjustments are safe and will be with in tollerances. This makes it more fun as you can personalise your map to suit your driving style and at any time the user option can be reset so the standard performance tune is loaded again.

    All of the above will be available on the standard Astra VXR STRATAGEM unit.

    We will then launch a STRATAGEM-Pro which will be for stage 2 and 3 cars only, then we will launch a STRATAGEM-DUO which has a combination of maps from the std unit and the pro all in one device, stage 1,2 and 3 this will be more expensive but ideal for people who start with a standard car and then have a map to suit every following modification.

    Dreamscience People.

    Adam Contoret (C-Eng, PHD) Head Technical

    Adam started the business 7 years ago and his background is mostly academic, he has always been into car mofifying in different ways and is one of those guys who seems to be able to fix anything, currently besides his calibration duties he is enroled with the European space agency for the Astronaut program, so some exciting times for him.

    Jared Apollonios (K.O.R) that's me.

    I am in charge of sales, marketing and dealer support, we now have 52 dealers world wide and are growing every week. My past was based at Vodafone and I have been in the business for 2 years and am a true car enthusiast often attending forum meets and race days etc.

    Carl Balmforth (S.D.C)

    Carl is our workshop manager in charge of the rolling road and general technical device support, including customer support, technical forums etc.

    Lee Richards Beng (Hons) MIET

    Lee is our senior embedded systems engineer who specialises in calibrating, reverse engineering and general IT. His backround is working at Jaguar in technical calibrating, module programming etc and was intrical in the development of the IDS system used by Ford.

    Charles Atkinson Beng (Hons) MIET

    Charles is more a behind the scenes type of guy, extremely talented software engineer and firmware developer, he is like Neo from the Matrix.

    Emanuel DeSousa

    Logistics and programming, he ensures all units are programmed, firmware updated, packaged, delivered etc plus our own forum coordinator.

    Neil Bangs (AAT)

    Finance and accounts, nick name Ginger Balls, in charge of all money and lack of it.

    Dannie Winter

    Assistant to Neil in accounts and our lovely receptionist.

    Aaron Durber & Chris Eardley

    These guys are our web designers who keep all the behind the scenes stuff running, they also help with marketing and designing our adverts, forum banners, google campaigns etc.


    I know a long winded introduction but as we are not so well known in the Vauxhall market I thought it necessary to introduce us better. We are extremely well known in the Ford tuning market where from independant forum polls we are the market leaders on alot of the ST model tuning including the ST225

    Any questions please ask here or call any of the guys on 01482 224433. If anyone fancies a visit we are always happy to see new faces. Our research centre is based in Hull so if you are ever passing, pop in and say hi, we look forward to working with you and most importantly supporting you.

    Welcome Jared and the rest of the dream science crew. Thanks for the intro always nice to gain an insight into exactly who's going to be running our cars for us albiet in binary .

    I'll get the obligatory question out of the way with, is there any plans to launch a similiar unit for the older Z20LET engine if so when?

    As a 1.6 owner I doubt you'd be seeing my money any time soon but I wish you all the best in the Vauxhall market.

    Hi jam,

    At the moment we are seriously considering making a handset for the Z20LET, there seems to be a big demand for this car, we will keep you guys posted on any future plans for the Z20LET, hopefully we will be releasing one sooner rather than later!. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask im more than happy to help.

    Welcome.

    A ZLET item would be a winner, as it seems to be taking EDS and Courtenay a decade to release there versions.

    Is there going to be any club discounts on products?

    Agreed on it being a winner, and huge understatement on the time taken for EDS/Courtenays to release their products! EDS jobbie was to be released last Novemeber, and then June of this year but still no signs of it LOL.
