    It has a small dent in the rear 1/4 panel, but apart from that it's in vgc. At least we wouldn't get seasick driving it back from places Of course it's a track car, just in track prep form at the moment.

    Also has no spare wheel or tool kit and will have a fire extinguisher in it, making it a genuine race car without the stickers.. Unless Dan can get a tuning company name set up.

    Since the car no longer has a decat, and will be rocking a stock K04 mani and DP, a decat has been made for it.



    All done:



    Track Prep is going well. And at a pricey sum of £0, fitting in well with the rest of the build. I have found some Ferodo pads in the shed that will go on when the current spec run out, and all is good.

    Anyone that wants a ported K03 mani, let me know as the one that was on the car is up for grabs.

    Sounds like mine

    Must be a proper track car.

    As it happens, I actually have a backwards 'BECAUSE RACE CAR' sunstrip in my drawer at home, Tori won't let me fit it to the polo

    BECAUSE NOT RACE CAR?

    Exactly, although I think this was from the neighbours van rather then £3k's worth of Armco.

    I started out with a strict budget of £1500, £500 was for seats and harnesses and steering wheel, £500 was for track wheels and tyres, and £500 was to get it back on the road because it was shagged.

    Then this gearbox came up with a quaife diff fitted for £500, and the trouble started!

    2 years later, and more money than I care to think about, and I currently have a crashed shell with no engine

    Definitely, would have liked an A3 but everyone knows the Leon is a faster car, and this one was very cheap.

    Exactly, cheapness is the name of the game.. We won't be spending anything like Prawn either, so that when it eventually ends up in a tyre wall/armco, it's not that much of a big deal!

    You and coatsey would just end up stripping out the rear of the car, sticking some foam in it and rusty tromboning until the sun shone through the windows.

    you'll do a trackday, and spin the inside wheel the whole time, then it'll just need a diff, but that'll be it.

    Then you'll cook the brakes, and it'll just need some 4 pots.....

    The price is bound to go up. Luckily Ben knows what he's doing and probably gets loads of parts which keeps the price down too.

    The one of the car isn't mine, but the other 2 were taken by Ben of the bits now fitted to the car. Should be popping up tomorrow after work so will get some better pics..

    Paid £1150, and got almost 75% back from the sale of the hybrid.

    It also has an armrest, albeit cloth, if anyone reading this is interested..

    As you can see the Leon is back together.

    Spent the afternoon yesterday getting it sorted as it hasn't had a lot of time spent on it. It isn't the best looking K04 install, but it is functional and everything is plumbed in where it should. Also helps that Ben has a large amount of tools, spare pipes and a fair amount of experience in this sort of thing.

    We went out in it to get some petrol and it ran out Got that sorted after a 1 mile walk and took it out for a test drive.

    It feels very fast. It's also makes a very nice noise, but isn't too loud so shouldn't have any noise worries. Took it through some country lanes and some A roads and it seems capable on both. Despite being on a K03s map, it has the larger injectors and MAF in their so it all tallied up pretty well. Will get the K04 map on at some point in the week and tweak a few things down in unisettings to take into account it doesn't have an XS mani or 3" downpipe.

    Leon has the K04 map on it now. Seems to go well enough..

    Time dependent we discussed last weekend about doing a home made short shifter for it, like Stacey has done.

    Next weekend will also see the epic Creation Motorsport 80mm tip migrate from one 5 door racecar to another, as it replaces the stock k04 tip currently on the car.

    I know you lot like pictures so here is 1 when it was new!

    Having been moved into the Projects thread, I expect this to become an online diary rather then a thread that any others actually read, but oh well.



    Using those 2 and a block of wood,this big dent:



    became this



    The best thing about a 2wd car



    Stock mani is possibly a bit restrictive and not getting rid of as much heat as it could..



    Giving him a hand sorting his S2000 clutch today, then possibly fit some 256 rear brakes and the front Goodridge lines and Ferodo pads.
