    This applies to me too! Your YouTube "Fiestaria" videos from Alpine pass trips looked a blast I thought "I'll have to get one of those" & then I got a shot of my pal's 200 in the Scottish Highlands and that sealed the deal. I'm yet to take it to the Alps :disappointed:, but I will!

    That's exactly the bit that made me ask. Sounds LOADS of fun mate. Might be a step too far for Mrs M but I'd definitely love one in ours!

    You are right Mes, such an upgrade requires lots of track time or aggressive driving in general so as to be justified, in Sim's case I think it'd be overkill tbh.

    On another note, the rear hubs are being formed as we speak:wink:

    Same guy mate, Don't know any reasonably priced machinists in the UK whom I trust! The guy in Greece is really cheap for the work involved..

    Sounds awesome! Off to go and find that bit of video now, what type of set up do you have your diff set to? I can't wait to try mine at Cadwell on the 27th!
    Love the car mate, like over have said this was a car I was on YouTube when I was thinking or purchasing one!

    You are gonna absolutely love it Tom!

    Mine is set for fast road/track and really glad we eventually opted for that. At the beginning we were talking about fast road but since the car is not being used as a daily any more we went for the more aggressive setup. How about yours?

    The invoice that I've got with it comes with from Jade Development says fast road setting.
    The diff is pretty much silent in operation which I wasn't expecting at all!
    When I've got a wheel off I'm going to measure the break away torque on it. I know it's more than 140nm as I torqued my wheels up with a wheel off the ground last weekend, would be interesting to make a comparison on them though, even though the ramp angles may be different.
    In the future I may look at what is involved with rebuilding the diff and adding more preload if I feel it's required on track.

    Got to be done next time around Yiannis! Looks to me like you have plenty of skills to go with already, just the natty footwear that's missing :smile:

    EPIC news mate! Super cool to see these making a return. Any updates to the design or staying as you were?

    I know right? I was really surprised with how quiet that diff is, I was expecting clicking and knocking etc but nothing at all, just a whining noise when it's cold and you are turning on low speeds which I have to say I like because..race car:smile:

    Impressive stuff if you do it yourself! Top marks for skills and knowledge mate, I wouldn't even know where to start. I think mine is 80Nm if I take what's written in the box is correct.

    love the fact you're not running ultra low.

    what hot tyre pressures are you running on the AD08R's? last time i had them on 2.2/2.0 bar front/rear. wonder if that's too low. kills the sidewalls.

    The car looks brilliant on track, excellent photos!

    And looking forward to the Donnington pedal footage then :smile:

    In fact Peter the car is not too low, it's the pics that make it look like that, especially the rear is quite high up in comparison to other cars on coilovers.

    Yes I think it's a bit too low to be honest, I'm measuring in PSI and 2.2 bar is around 32 psi. I'm running 33-34 and 30-31 psi front and rear respectively hot, more than that and you end up ruining the mid area but lower I find them a bit too wobbly for my liking:smile:

    Hey man, sounds sweet this car. What exhaust system is it? I noticed you have an uprated manifold.

    Thanks Crazylegs, it's Akrapovic Evo, K-Tec manifold and K-tec induction kit.
