    Mine lives in Laindon at my parents house in their garage and only comes out when it's sunny and for trackdays really (been there since November). I see a couple of silver ones and a red one around Bas sometimes. I think there is another yellow one in Wickford.

    Attending a Trackday?

    That's probably a good call, who knows when the tracks will open, some emails say tracks may open sooner rather than later, then another says some tracks are closed for May and June... not sure what they are going to do different in July they can't do now though, the virus isn't going away too...

    I've a Mk1 on ST suspension (KW') V2 coilovers so cannot comment on mk2 / 3 Cupras, but I find it quite compliant, yes it can be crashy over potholes and the like and i'd not like to daily it to be honest (it is just a track car) but its not solid like a go-kart except round corners :) Trev

    Hi Sparkie, I checked out June on MSV and they've a couple going too (Full Days) but I might look at the 15th too (although not sure I can wait that long :) ) It's an evening only so will sell out in seconds once the Government announce an easing. Toying with 4th June with MSV.

    Great video and decent driving too for your 1st Track day. Your car pulls well on to the main straight. You'd defo enjoy decent brake pads and discs, shave seconds off your lap times as you was lifting and braking early. You say about handling, uprated springs are ok (your car looks pretty good...

    LCR track car build

    550cc seem to be the injector of choice, but I've not looked into it. I'd say that below 300 bhp the stock ones are ok going by the people talking about 550 / 610cc injectors are looking for 340+ bhp and running hybrid / bigger turbo's. You say your not on facebook but there is a wealth of...

    MIne has all stage 2 recommended equipment, except FMIC ( I did have a new Airtec ready to fit but sold it to fund the LSD). As for power I have a RR plot that shows 245 BHP from when it was mapped. To be honest I take RR plots with a pinch of salt. It's how the car drives that is most...

    This is a cheaper replacement for the lower dogbone (gearbox), quick search so might be cheaper out there https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/1216650381 Personally, I've had AmD remap four of my cars and in each case been really happy with the results. There are others on social media who hate them (I...

    cheers for the hoses link. I'm not gonna comment on standard ones as never really run them as changed plugs and coil packs as part of service when I 1st got my car, so no real experience other than car ran fine when I brought it. I went with these for longevity and reliability (back when I was...

    Nice Job there, did you get the pipes / hoses with it or just worked out what you needed and brought the hoses individually? As for coil packs, many on the forums / social's say the standard ones are fine, just get new ones but personally i've been running the 'R8' red ones for 4 years and the...

    They're not cheap but you will be very happy with them :) BTW that's a good price! Just found them on Ebay myself, you got the 10% off code too "pristine" use it quickly as expires tonight (6/11) £259 is a steal!!

    Attending a Trackday?

    Thanks Sparkie :) I'll be the 1st to admit that I thought running plain discs was best for friction area, etc. and Pads was teh most important but after being recommended Tarox F2000 I must admit I couldn't believe how much better my brakes were. I originally ran XP10's with Plain Pagid...
