Love this. Think the centre exit exhaust is going to look really good once finished.
Looks great, looking forward to seeing the videos.
So it's pretty loud up to 3k
after that it just nice passed the trackday but unsure what it's db reading is
Car all loaded for donington park
Started of very wet to which I learnt how to control the slides etc
End of the day it was dry. Never swapped to the direzzas by epic grip still with it's setup
Car yet again faultless! So going to service and fluid flush brakes and gearbox. Nut and bolt check also
Here's a link to my day out also
Excuse the poor edit haha
what a great video..like the way you gradually build up the speed..those clios are for for dust and the BMW too..great stuff..looking forward to tracking mine soon...
Not updated in a while.. few things have happened.
First up was to fit my sabelt wheel and custom cruise control bracket..
Next up i got round to fitting my bonnet pins, need to do the boot ones still.
The weathers been great so seemed a shame not to treat myself on fathers day to take the car out to a local supercar meet. It did attract quite abit of attention
It was also at this point i just cant stand looking at the privacy glass on the rear, so contacted a special someone and got some clear glass. I toyed with poly windows but the weightloss wasnt needed and also having glass is abit more robust and easier to clean
Next up was to remove some bits that i planned to. Battery was also removed so i could run a small one inside. I actually liked the oem look and the clubsport look but all out i say..
Next up was the battery relocation,
During this i also relocated both fuse boxes. Im making myself a small cover plate to hide the big red fuses. Also im going to be rewrapping the loom so it looks a little neater
With that taken care of i decided to fit some carbon goodness.. little touches.. just need to get than engine a little scrub and then to fit my other header tank.
Just getting the car ready for french car show now, tarting it up whilst i can
More things to follow this weekend
that cruise control bracket looks brilliant! best i've seen so far.
Update.. its been a while
So starting off my battery relocation
During this i hated the way the engine bay looked so now i thought id move my expansiom bottle over to keep it less spread out
I had also made a small foot mount for my feet
All this was abit rushed for map check due to my exhaust.. car ran 3bhp less and then just adjusted acordingly, but again didnt want any more power due to a certain mod i had planned....
Map all checked it was a few days prior to fcs.. upon arriving to donington literally 10 mins from track the car decided to splutter any time i put my foot down...
Anyway got to the garage and cracked on..i had a guess and pulled coils to check plugs, 2 didnt look great and nor did 2 coils. Managed 2 cracked coilpacks and swapped out plugs. The team i was with were on it and right away shortly i had 2 new coilpacks delivered to donington and my other half collected them as i went in for briefing etc
Wheels going on, was a pleasure in a fully kitted out garage!
Apart from that slight hiccup, car saw a good few hours on track! Faultless. Had a cracking time chasing cupracers and playing with time attack cars etc. Otherhalf loved it too! First time out with me on track too, bonus.
Few pics from the day
Sooooo.. didnt want to but ended up selling my seats! Oh not sure i mentioned either i added some carbon to the cage to protect it a little from harnesses and getting in and out
Also purchased myself a gripper'd gearbox.. another impulse buy!
My next task would be to remove the parts and get my new box installed, in the meantime i also purchased some black series bushes for the wishbones ans purple arb bushes whilst the subframes off
Thats about it for now too, hopefully this weekend i will have my new bushes and gearbox installed. Topped up with fuchs race synchro oil and rebleed of the brakes and clutch.
Track day booked for the 23rd. So hopefully we will see how the new ratio and diff feels along with the new bushes
Awesome as usual!
Great update! keep them coming. Seems like a busy weekend for everyone coming up!
Sorry have to insert this! I love it
Just had a read through this your a very clever guy love the guy really gives me an idea on what I want mine to be one day
Just had a read though, great read. Turn-in looks spot on from the videos. This is going to be next level with the gripper diff. Think I'm going to have to turn mine into a racer now!
Looking good.. nice to see all this.
always something to be improved on on these..well done Danny..its a great machine and i loved all the pics too..you should be one very proud owner!!!
Well.. didnt get the box back in however i did manage to get my black series into my wishbones and then purple arb bushes, also been working on my bonnet which i dont think anyone knows about haha.. so here is
So as you can see.. its a custom green carbon fibre. Still needs allot of attention to its inner skin however.
Had a peak inside my box, check.. gripper clio 3
Bushes going in.. must say it wasnt too bad once i got myself onto a press. Vice and sockets werent the quickest way!!
Today is my birthday also. So spend the day with my feet up, got to say my other half really pulled off the best cake ever, check this out
So this weekend the box will be in!
Booked some track time for the 23rd so lookimg forward to seeing how the day goes, wet or dry
Wow awesome cake!
Love the additional air vent mod in the bonnet also!
as always..spot on and the cake to top it up..tasty..
My god that cake! She's a diamond mate!
Bonnet... is that pre-preg carbon or a wrap? If pre-preg, who made it for you?
Won't be pre preg can tell by the weave. And if it's cloth with green thread it's 100% not. Looks tidy tho
It isnt a wrap at all, its green carbon fibre with resin all done in a vacuum etc. Completely one off piece
Yeah its just green cloth all done infused in bag or something..
It was actually going to be a special piece but didnt end up at all how i wanted. Thats another story but trying to make it work since i have it
