    Clayton's Tornado Red GTI..

    They really are! I’m taking my OZ’s with AD08R’s on them with me so will swap them over when i’m there👍🏼

    So, another set of wheels. I have been wanting these for a very long time. Enkei RPF1. They are currently grey but i will be changing them to Silver in the future. They came with new near Toyo T1R’s which I hate but i will run them for a few weeks before they come off. Well happy with how they look though! Also, i go to the Nürburgring tomorrow! So i’ll update this after the trip!

    Learn something new every day! It’s currently turbo’d at around 400bhp, only around 9psi of boost. Needs a 4” MAF then the boost can be turned up.

    They are stock injectors, capable of 500bhp we believe.

    No real big updates lately, I fitted some Ferodo DS1.11's a week ago, after using the DS2500's with the standard calipers and always being pleased with them I thought i'd try the next step up and go for the 1.11's. First impressions are really good, even on the road. The initial bite is something i've never felt before in any car. The car weighing only 920kg obviously helps but they really do stop the car well now. I go to the Nurburgring on Easter weekend so only a few weeks away, they will get a proper test there! Other than that i've just been enjoying the car in the nice weather recently. I'll leave some pictures below.

    A mate of mine had this and said I could have it, so i thought i’d try it without first. The car will only get driven properly once I know the oil is up to temperature. The reason for the R32 bushes is purely because they are softer than Powerflex but stiffer than standard. The whole idea with this car is to make it a really good road and decent on the track. So I don’t want it too stiff 👍🏼

    What brand were those? I've had Brembo's and EBC's, never had that issue!

    Painted the oil cooler Black today as I didn’t like the Silver standing out through the grill. Also painted the crash bar whilst I had the paint out

    The latest little mod, fitted a 7 row oil cooler Saturday. The car has never struglled with heat but with two Nürburgring trips coming up in the summer I thought why not, better to be safe than sorry! I’m going to paint it Black as i’m not keen on the way it stands out behind the bumper.

    Headlight Ballast

    They are definitely the same as the B5 S4, a matr has one and his packed up the other week so he had one of my spare ones👍🏼

    Headlight Ballast

    Same as a B5 S4 as well, gives you another option👍🏼

    Cheers appreciate the nice words👍🏼 The rear anti roll bar really helps with understeer, the car rotates nicely when you need it to as well. When i was really pushing them i find around 6-7 laps of Snetterton then you can feel them stary to over heat. I tend to about 5 at a time, seems to be the sweet spot.

    It’s made by a company called Epytec in Germany

    I’m not quite sure why they are off a tad, we tried to adjust it some more but thats as close as we could get it🤷🏼‍♂️

    It’s not the mount that does that, it’s the Gopro. If you have a Hero 5 or above it has that built in. I’ll leave a picture below of the Geometry, it could be more aggresive for track but this is what i find works well for road use as well👍🏼
