    so a random pic i took yesterday

    [​IMG]


    and on a more productive list:

    tomorrow the Audi goes in for some tuning finally
    going to be doing the footwell lights as i have so many meters of the **** at home

    and on a serious note, had to rush a mate to hospital on saturday night and did about 25 to 30km of pure hardcore racing there and by the time i got there the brakes were very hard which only means that i must have cooked the pads a little. stopped at the hospital for about an hour and once i got back into the car it was all sweet and ready to go again. so im going to have to do some cooling methods soon.... SIGH

    Epic pic dude... Looks nice and low! Don't you ever feel like your going to scrape your cupra lip off? I'm contemplating fitting one but I don't want to struggle getting into my drive way...

    On a side note, even though they were sh1t circumstances it must have been pretty epic racing like that? Something out of a movie scene haha... What brake pads are you running? My brakes are KAK! i've been looking at EBC/Powerbrake/Ferrodo... They all pretty expensive! What the best performance vs cost option? Shot dude

    Make sure you got your wheel lock nuts on and steering wheel removed. Oaks are sharp in my old neighbourhood!
