    Matt's 200

    The pic in the Brands pit garage gave me horrible flashbacks of setting up event kit in them and falling over those bloody steps every time :tearsofjoy: Awesome car with a nice brace of mods, hope to see it out on track some time!

    197 Track Project

    Nice to see another black 197 getting the treatment! Looks a nice base to start with, be interested to see how similar ours end up! The rear brace looks like the BAF Motorsport (I believe) K Brace to me. Quite a few companies make them now and the general consensus is that they look cool but...

    Glacier White 200 Cup

    Exact same one I've got too. I had a lot of air in my ABS pump and had to use this along with my other half pumping the pedal. Worked a treat without CLIP but ideally you'd use the software to cycle the pump to be sure.

    Glacier White 200 Cup

    Fuck me that was a close one! As for brakes I'm running DS2500 with RBF660 fluid and they're much better than the standard Brembo pads, I run the standard Brembo discs and they survived a sprint day and a full day of hammering around Snetterton with no real fade, I did pick up some better pads...

    Suj's Nimbus Clio 197 and E36 328i Trackcar

    Man this makes me miss my old E36 that I had years ago. It's such a timeless shape! I think there'll be a queue of us trying to get into the passenger seat in August!

    Disappearing coolant!

    I had a similar issue last year, pressure test showed no leaks, thermostat was new, hoses all looked good but the car would literally dump the coolant when it got up to temperature. Turned out to be a tiny hole in the radiator, bottom rad hose and the short 90 elbow under the expansion tank...

    Bolts Vs Studs

    Yeah you can damage the torque wrench if you use it as a breaker bar, it makes the calibration wrong. I remember reading about it a while back when I was trying to stop a bloke at work using our £600 3/4" drive torque wrench as a power bar :tearsofjoy: I picked up a long handled 1/2" drive...

    Haha yeah it's a super fun track, the last 2 corners are actually pretty easy if you're wearing your big boy pants. It's strange as my laps at Curborough felt super choppy and didn't feel smooth at all, whereas these laps flowed nicely. As you can see here... This is the full session from start...

    GW 200 CUP (clubsport)

    It's a Porsche driver thing, I was left for dust on the straights yesterday at Snetterton but all over them like a fat pigeon on a chip through the twisty bits. Car's looking really good too!

    Here's my fastest lap. Standard quality for now, YouTube does that thing where it limits to 360p to start. Should be up in 1080p shortly!

    Snetterton happened today. All my hard work finally paid off! Sat in the paddock waiting to go out, lots of bugs about today! Had loads of fun with this Cayman, he had the legs on me but I was all over him like a rash in the corners! Well matched with this RX8 too, got stuck behind him for...

    No pictures because I didn't take any but a quick run down of the last 36 hours. Friday 6pm - finished work and raced home to get on with the Clio, checked the brakes again and still had a vague pedal. Got the pressure bleeder out again and ran the engine while doing it. Pedal was a little...

    So I got the calipers back from Tom at BTT Motorsport and he did a great job. Sadly the courier thought otherwise and I ended up with paint damage and a bleed nipples had been knocked hard and damaged the thread. Luckily I have access to an M10 fine thread tap so I was able to save the caliper...

    Glacier White 200 Cup

    When I went for a set of semi slicks I went fairly cheap and got a set of Nankang NS2R in 225/45/17 as they were about £90 each. They're a big step up from the Goodyear Eagle F1s I use as a road tyre. I'm gunna wait until my talent takes me to the limit of the tyre then go down the MRF route I...

    So I was given a few options of shades of yellow, from various pictures I settled on Renault (keep it in the family!) Sunflower Yellow, the pictures I saw online looked like the ideal colour. As you can see from the photos Tom sent, it was very washed out. They're going to be much closer to the...
