    I drove around 50 miles last night, geometry isn’t too far and I didn’t have a hint of rattle? Completely silent.

    Cheers, i’m pleased with how it turned out. To be honest, I drive the car just as hard everytime it gets driven, apart from the handbrakes. I just thought why not for a video. Yeah he really is a good driver, after about 10 minutes it seemed like he knew the car very well. I was in the car all of the time, it was very strange i must say!

    Well today has been a fantastic day, I’m sure most of you know or have heard of Sideways Sid. I took the car to him today for him to make a video on and to get someone else’s opinion on the car! It seems like he absolutely loved the car and he was really surprised by it. He is a super nice guy, we wasted a good 2 hours just talking car stuff lol. Not too sure when the video will be out but i’ll be sure to post it in here when it goes live!

    Plenty of miles being put on the Lupo lately, all fun miles too! As it’s not my daily driver, every time it gets taken out it gets ‘driven’! Winter plans are to remove front subframe and everything else on the front end and powder coat the lot, the underneath will then be finished. The dash and doorcards will be getting flocked as i hate the texture on the standard dash and the doorcards are a horrible grey material. Gave it a thorough clean today, wheels off and arches all cleaned up, something i find really satisyfying to do.

    Clayton's Tornado Red GTI..

    Well today was the last trackday of the year for me and the Lupo, at Snetterton again. I cannot describe how good the car feels compared to the last time on track. The new rear beam and geometry really has transformed the way the car behaves, so much more balance and composure through the high speed corners! The extra power is massively noticeable also, much more low down torque out the tighter corners. But, the best part is the brakes. They really are incredible compared tonthe standard calipers. Overall it was a good day, other than one little moment I ended uo facing the wrong way. I was chasing an MR2 for 3-4 laps, we was both pushing hard then suddenly he has a lot of smoke coming out. Can only assume the engine blew up and dumped all his oil on the track, causing me to do a 360 almost instantly lol!

    Good condition, just swapped for a freshly powder coated one. £60 collected or arrange your own courier.

    😂😂😂 they are chunky ole track tyres!

    Clayton's Tornado Red GTI..

    Yeah this way my thought, other than that i’m keen. They are a bit heavier, i think they are around 0.4kg a wheel heavier.

    After driving it some more, it’s safe to say its a little rocket now. Had a side by side rolling race through Mexico with a mate in his Clio 182 which has a full exhaust and a map. 50mph 3rd gear pull, i’m ahead up until about 100 then his 2.0 gradually pulls back. Pleased with that though! Also tried on my mates Enkei RPF1’s, what do you think? I really like them!

    Unfortunately it’s hard rev limited, it was annoying till i got used to it. No doubt you’ll feel the same once you drive yours some more. Yes i did, new rings and seals every where. New valves and all the other bits in the head. I reckon there is more to be had out of yours👍🏼
