    I use second at some point on most tracks. And it'd make pulling away very difficult

    To be honest i don't think it'll be an issue with this, especially after I've adapted it further

    Have you been on the wine again BBD that makes no sense.

    Second gear used at rocky yes. First hairpin, Tarzan hairpin, and last chicane.

    Woth the new map and rods though, we may well find it'll pull in 3rd from much lower down due to the hugely increased torque

    What about the second course later in the day.

    I'm not referring to using second for any length of time, just short bursts for tight bends.

    That's me driving. The first time and Rockingham and the first time in the uprated car. I was having a ball. The car was on low boost and going like a rocket. It was suggested by some snotty nosed little co driver that I slow down and let Nige overtake so that I could observe his lines. .

    I think Nige uses some form of Race-Chrono with a P-box Bill, I'll find out for you. I don't know what outputs your DTA has, but harrys lap timer for the iphone 4 onwards also has OBD inputs available to do the same thing!



    As above, BigAl driving in that clip lewis, on low boost which was around ~270bhp / 220lbft at the time.



    I love the bit later on where I suggest to Dad he lets Nige past just after Pif-Paf to watch his lines, you see dad indicate, Nige draws up close, then Dad just flaws it and fecks off again still indicating Nige to pass. I don't think Dads quite got the hang of letting people past yet.



    Must pay more attention in briefings Big Bad Dad



    Or just use High boost and rinse them all

    You seem to be pretty fast still for an old bugger, so we'll let you off

    haha, yes OK, it did actually rain a bit during the lap too, and I was terrified when you appeared not to care and kept on flat out

    Nick,

    360 Thrust Bearing | eBay

    seems they only sell there uprated bearing kits with the uprated washer and not the collar, like yours was! Not a one off then!

    Very interesting news Dan, clearly you were too kind in your initial estimation, and they are just useless rather than negligent!

    I'm fed up.

    it's SO FECKING COLD. i can't feel my hands at all, I've been outside since 7:30 in the rain and snow, struggling to see anything through my dumpy level because it's iced up, it's just taken me 5 minutes to get my van keys out of my saturated coat pocket, and another 3 minutes to get the ******* door open using two hands.

    What a crock of ****e.

    Booked friday off work, as frankly, I can't be bothered with this cold. Picking up new wheels from Ben tomorrow night, and booked an MOT for friday, at which point we'll fit the some nice new tyres too

    Got a set of Pirelli P-zero Corsas to go onto the TT comp wheels I've bought from Ben:



    I've used these before, and found them to be awesome, both in the dry, and more surprisingly in the wet too when you can get some heat into them!

    Previously we've run the car on 'normal' road tyres a lot of the time, Pirelli Asymetricos most recently, but with the power now, and the miserable british weather, it just seems a bit pointless, so I'll be running the Corsas for road and track for the next few months

    yea, full fat K04 but something different also
    all will be revealed if it makes a difference..

    I'm satisfied I have created the ultimate K03 hybrid with what has been done on the lupo. 332bhp seems reasonable to me.
    Now onto K04, relentless, and turbo spec evolution again.... might not work, but then again it might. we shall see
    The hybrid k04 crown will return to badger 5 in due course

    Heck, this puts us under 10 spare sets of tyres. Better get on ebay and replenish.

    These pirreli's were very very good. They were amongst the first we used on the ring and really we did not appreciate until later how good they were. We had them second hand with not much tread on them, but they kept on going and going. Incredible tyre.

    In that case, I definitely can't trust you to make me an inlet manifold, as it'd jeopardise your chances of regaining said crown, so you'd probably sabotage the inlet and add flow restrictions somewhere that can't be seen

    Quote Originally Posted by 16Klappe View Post

    yes! that last set were bought by Dan second hand, he used them for 2 ring trips and a few trackdays, I used them for one ring trip and 4 trackdays, and a load of road miles, and now they've been sold on again and they STILL have a few trackdays in them! Simple amazing.

    Quote Originally Posted by bigal 1 View Post

    Yup, they were our first track tyres ever on the car, and being so old, we assumed they wouldn't have been so great, and kept thinking ''how much better will it be on new tyres!?''

    Truth is, looking back, nothing else we've used has been any better, the Federals wern't as good, and the A048's were on a par, but I don't think anything has been better than these Corsas.

    Very happy to have a set going on it again for normal use Drive to the track, abuse all day long, drive home again, rain or shine. Ultimate tyre.

    I fear many more CR units could be destined for the same fate as mine was heading to if this is what they're using in all turbos.

    Will be good to see how the new BeachBuggy built incarnation stands up to track use next year. I have faith that it'll do we'll

    lots to do this weekend! Mot and tyres tomorrow, then maybe some more work in the afternoon, then I've still got discs and pads to fit all round, and a caliper refurb, and I also have these orange beasties to fit:




    more info on them later

    Like I said on Facebook, a bit harsh they copied the Ground Control design. I thought, after all that hoo-ha with the SFS tip, you'd only get the "genuine" item!

    Edit: Hard to see in the photo but do they have an additional bearing on the spring pan? You're asking a lot of the rose joint otherwise. Ground Control revised their design to add this in later. Depends if they copied the early or later design I guess.

    I'll never have anything D2 from what I've heard, I ordered a set of coilovers on a group buy for my Clio RS and sold them to a friend of mine brand new and boxed when I decided I was selling my car. He paid to have them fitted and 6 weeks later they started knocking, D2 wouldn't warrant him because they said they were incorrectly installed and then the units got "lost" in the post on the way back.

    Another friend (although an internet friend) has a set on his M3 race car, says they're **** and he's only had them on for half a season and he's changing.

    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    O wow ok never heard that before!!!! Iv used JOMs on my jetta VR6 and my A3 and have no issues with them, they are a cheap so I don't expect magic but for half the price of the other coils I'm happy with them! But thanks for the heads up on the D2 stuff dude

    Hard and bouncy as fck and blow then blow the seals. Even on the lowest damper setting they`re still bone crunching. People just like them because they go lower than your grans nips.

    Lmao!!!!!! The JOMs go pretty damn low to, iv got another 20 to 30mm left on the front to go down and the sump plate is 55mm off the ground and its comfy, I can still put 4 peeps in the car and sound and no issues

    We'll have to agree to disagree on that one Sam, Bill came up with something revolutionary and new with the full 3" TIP for the k04, SFS realised it was a good idea and jumped on the bandwagon (or badgerwagon as it were)

    eccentric sliding top mounts are nothing even remotely new, and ground control certainly weren't the first people to offer them. The concept of a pillow ball mount in a slotted plate is pretty much universal across all makes, and surely the only way to fit that onto a standard turret is to replicate the rubber come in alloy? Just seems like common sense to me, not copying.

    Silver- project have been making mounts like these for ages, including very similar ones for the mk2/Ibiza chassis, it's just only recently they have adapted it for the mk4.

    Will do a full write up and mini review when I fit them this weekend.
