    Cawsey's Track Toy

    Hi Guys, The time has come where i don't need the car on the road anymore so instead of selling it for peanuts I've decided to turn it into a track day car. It will be a slow project but thought it would be a good idea to keep it all in one thread. I bought the car completely standard 3 years ago and has been brilliant ever since.

    Here's the spec so far:

    1999 Audi S3

    AMD stage 2 map, BBS LM 19s, 20mm Momo Spacers, Black Diamond Discs, Ferrodo ds2500 pads, Milltek Exhaust, Pipewerx downpipe and Decat, Custom FMIC, 4 bar Fuel Pressure Regulator, Forge 007p, Forge short shift, Forge DV relocation ,Forge TIP, S2000 Filter, Sachs Race Clutch, Sachs Light weight Single mass flywheel, ForgeOil catch tank, De baffled Charge pipe & Polished, Polished Inlet Manifold, N249 Delete, PCV Delete, Red Engine Mounts, Forge Boost hoses, Angel Eye Headlights, LCR Splitter,

    I've spent this weekend repainting the front grills, cutting open the bumper for the FMIC to access as much air as possible, stripping out some of the interior, fitting some carbon panels around gear stick, hand brake and for switches.
    Here's a few pictures:

    Next will most probably be carbon door cards then maybe build a whole new dash, but i have a lot of other things on the list to do first like engine bits and handling.

    I tracked my Ibiza when I bought my S3 - like you, not worth trying to sell it so had a good few years fun out of it until rust finally got the better of it. Enjoy!

    I havnt really driven it hard yet since the bumper mod as my engine is making a rattling sound so i need to get that fixed first before testing.

    I think I'm going to stick to interior parts and brackets at the moment, maybe in the future ill start making exterior panels. It takes so much time and effort to make carbon parts taking a splash from the part then making mold then laying the mold up sanding the painting etc.
    i have a lot of other things that are priority first and i work 55 hours a week so time is limited

    Cheers Rob its always good to have a spare set of hands. That rattle i had at high revs while we were logging has got much worse now, no power and judders like a jcb, I'm pretty sure its something to do with this stupid light weight SMF.
    so its going to have to wait until the end of the month until i can afford to put it in a garage to check it. unless anyone local on here fancy's taking the gearbox off and having a look?

    The engine isn't running right at the moment so i need to spend some time getting that sorted first and a few small things like replace window clips etc then ill be focusing at getting all the handling perfect suspension, arbs etc and fitting some Brembos.

    I've been doing something similar but need to drive it daily. I notice no mention of suspension in your list but here's a few shopping items:

    IDF tubular front control arms - not necessary but won't deflect like bushes and last well (they use decent rose joints). Mine have arrived back in Aus, keen to get them fitted.
    Solid subframe and rack mounts - USRT sell both
    Front camber mounts - ground control, h2sport or prawns ones
    Decent coilovers - KW V3 or H&R RSS Clubsport
    Decent tyres - speak to prawn
    Light rims - enkei are good
    R32 rear arb might be enough - many of the auto-x guys run no arb and say it improves turn in.
    Handling mods++. HTA3582 stroker soon-ish. Hiding parts from the mrs since 2011. Build thread

    I think the key to handling is making the geometry adjustable or at least correct for your intended use. My recent addition of a shimmed rear end, and caster correction front bushes and adjustable top mounts has really transformed my car totally.

    Cool well just give me a shout either PM me or drop me a text (i think i gave you my number) if you want a hand. Am reasonably handy with a spanner set but just lack some of the knowledge thats all. So if you think you know how to get your gearbox off am willing to be your spanner monkey

    Have you got a new clutch setup to go in if we took it apart?

    Yea I have your number Rob, I haven't a clue how to take the box off but I'm sure it won't be rocket science. I'm just limited with space as my garage isn't very big. I may just wait till payday and take it into a garage. Where's good near Southampton? And no I don't have a new setup to put in, It's pretty annoying as I'm running a sach smf and updated clutch, two weeks after having it fitted a bit of metal snapped off the clutch letting one of the springs come loose. so i had it sent back which they wouldn't replace under warranty so I bought a new one which was solid, this was all re fitted about 5 months ago. So far it's cost me an arm and a leg. Here's a pic of the old clutch that broke. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1361387940.467327.jpg

    Ahh that makes sense as I deleted the SAI, it was doing my head in trying to find where it went.

    Which engines use the large port head? It's it just AGU and AEB as I'm thinking of buying a second engine completely stripping it for a stroker 2.1 big turbo build.

    Next week I will be wiring up the ignition and push botton start and fitting some more carbon parts. Pics will be added as I go along. Also I will be building a flush carbon bonnet vent that will slot into a carbon heat shield box for the air filter when closed.

    AEB and AGU yes.

    Would it be rude of me at this point to point out that building a track car is much more about the whole package than the engine? Big power is not what you need chap, you've got many thousands to spend before you're needing any more power

    haha prawns thread should be enough to make you think twice.

    I think it all depends on how are you want to go with it. its a slipery slope. Prawns car was leathal with just a k03s, now look at where he's at. Personally, as you already have a stage 2 map, your car is quick so I would leave the engine alone and work on shedding weight, braking and handling.

    Id say a 2.1 would be **** for track, youd be better off with a high revving 1.8 or 1.9, look at bill, hes running a 1.9.

    yup, st2 ko4 and 4wd is PLENTY to make a very, very fast track car, stripped and lightened, with some choice handling mods, and you will have a very serious weapon indeed.

    The last thing you need on track is some silly 500bhp+ unreliable big turbo motor

    Yup you don't need big power for a fun time on track. Even standard power could be fun if braking and suspension are ood. Look at all the people that drive mx5s...115/130bhp but love every second because of the way it drives. Brakes suspension and make it all last as long as possible on track with decent cooling and stuff like that.

    Don't worry about getting it on the track, it won't make the event without breaking down on the way there
