    Suspension refresh Eibach springs?

    I found the Eibachs a little more bouncy than standard paired with my 75,000 mile cup shocks - but liked the ride height, and found them really good for more focused driving and on track. I went for Gaz Golds as wanted the adjustable top mounts - they’ve totally changed the car. Kept it a...

    Suspension refresh Eibach springs?

    I’ve got a set of Eibach springs from my 2012 200 in Essex if you’re interested in buying. Installed new in July 2019, and done around 6000 miles. Replaced them last month with some track focused coil overs.

    Cool - I’d be really happy to even get close to 300 on the initial build. Give it another 12 months and I’ll definitely be swapping more bits out to improve performance!

    I don't know where this is going to end up...

    So I picked up a ktec stage 2 turbo on eBay that’ll be plumbed into the forged Meg engine, and I’ve specced a better intercooler. It’ll get the 630cc injectors when it’s dyno tuned, and just wondering what sort of power I should expect to get out of it? I’m guessing the fuel pump and exhaust...

    My mate just sent me these magentic croissants to stick on the side of the car for track days - legend!!!

    Had Gaz Golds fitted this morning. What a difference to the Eibach springs and cup shocks - on the middle setting and ride’s much firmer with less bounce! My box of Clio bits is getting bigger - might need to start selling stuff soon! She’s off to BeanieSport for the Meg conversion on Saturday!!!

    I’ve got another strategy for temperature regulation which will also shed 30kg from the cars weight… my Mrs has put me on a diet!

    I don't know where this is going to end up...

    You’ve basically just summed up all of the arguments that are going round in my head!!! This car was never about comfort - it’s about a fun build, and I think the right thing to for the car is to remove the aircon. I’m 100% sure I’ll miss it on hot days… but I’m old enough to remember when...

    I don't know where this is going to end up...

    Only decision I’ve got left to make about the conversion is whether or not to retain the AC. In terms of comfort I think I’ll miss it - but removing it leaves more space in engine bay for header tank and induction. Looking for any Meglio owners who can share their experience - did you...

    I don't know where this is going to end up...

    Could have gone either way… but after a couple of track days I’m hooked and happy to spend a bit more cash on it! Going to BeanieSport for the conversion, I think they’ll do a proper job, and can hopefully get it done by mid November. Then back to Engine Dynamics for a map!

    I don't know where this is going to end up...

    Well… this has escalated fairly quickly! Donington was only my 2nd track day, but I soon got fed up of the lack of power on the straights, and running out of rpm approaching a corner. Car sounds awesome and feels amazing in the corners, but I’m flat out almost 100% of the time and need a bit...

    Donington Park evening session yesterday - beautiful day, awesome circuit, and a huge variety of cars and drivers! So glad I took my wheels - perfect conditions and made a massive difference to the grip (and my confidence!) going round corners.

    I don't know where this is going to end up...

    Thanks chaps - if I take the wheels it’ll rain, if I don’t it’ll be dry! I’ll only regret it if I don’t take them, and they do fit nicely in the boot so decision made! What do you guys do with spare wheels and all your gear when you’re out on track? Assuming I probably won’t have a garage.

    I don't know where this is going to end up...

    Installed some brackets to store semi slicks when not on the car. Going to Donington on the 6th for an evening session - not sure if it’s worth taking the MRF’s as forecast says light showers?

    Wheel Alignment in Fife

    Thanks for the recommendations. My dad had a great experience at Ladybank Tyres today - super quick, good value, and sorted out the mess that kwikfit made of his tracking when changing front tyres!

    Wheel Alignment in Fife

    Can anyone recommend a good independent garage in the Fife area to have a full 4 wheel alignment?

    HELP! Fuel Flap Stuck!

    How difficult was it to fit a new solenoid? My one’s in for its MOT and the fuel flap’s stuck closed again :tearsofjoy:

    New tyre's...! Loving the graphic on the sidewall of the ZTR's - and a PS4's should get the job done in the wet.

    Best tyre combination?

    I take your point about skimping on tyres - if there was an award for the most money spent with the least amount of benefit I’m pretty sure I’d win it… another £200 is a drop in the ocean! Picked up a nice set of speedlines from Joe Hodges this morning and have ordered some MRF ZTR’s using the...

    Best tyre combination?

    Thanks for the comments - I think I’ll go with the PS4’s for wet/damp as not too expensive. That just leaves the dry tyres - at the back of my mind I’m thinking cheaper might be a false economy because they’ll wear out quicker? Guess I’ll just take a punt on something - it’s not like I’ll be...
