    The New Forum

    I feel the same. It works ok for me in the mobile version. Except you can't see things like who posted last which is annoying. But the full web version is a complete disaster. Right now I'm at work and our internet is limited to 1mb. I click on a post, and I have to do some work for ten minutes...

    Prawn and BigAls A3 Track Car

    I've got a 'gopro' style camera that I got from Aldi. It was £40 and is on a £4 ebay suction mount. Picture quality is every bit as good as a gopro but it has a lot less functionality, and can only be mounted in its waterproof case which completely kills the sound on it. I quite like that...

    Cam belt time? . . Use new engine mount bolts!!!

    I snapped two earlier this year, after re-using them half a dozen times. Luckily I got away with minor damage, but I quite quickly replaced them all afterwards

    advice on buying water meth kit

    I don;t have any lights. Nothing for low level, nothing for pump being on. I do have a liquid gauge so I can easily see intake and exhaust temps. I check my meth when I fill up with fuel. Never managed to run out yet and I have a tiny wee two litre tank

    My minor modding thread

    I'm quite happy with how my ABS works, but the ESP and diff fight against each other so the ESP needs constantly switched off. And an orange light on the dash is annoying. I'll have a play about with VCDS later and see what happens, but since I have no turbo at the moment, testing it is an...

    Tell me more about coding out the ESP. I'm bored of switching mine off every time I get in the car

    Hybrid turbo build-worth it?

    why would you be worried about lag on track? Theres never a time where I'm below 4k rpm, and if I was, I have a gearbox to fix that. Power isn;t always on tap though, because a hybrid is on its **** at 6500rpm, and you spend far more time up there, than you do down where you;d be worrying about...

    Hybrid turbo build-worth it?

    IMO, it depends what you want the car for. If its a road car, don;t bother with a hybrid, because you can never legally enjoy the extra power you have. Stage 2 is plenty for licence losing speeds as it is. And if you have a track car, unless you want to run the hybrid de-tuned for...

    Prawn and BigAls A3 Track Car

    I couldn;t care less what it weighs. All I know is, its a lot heavier than a length of T45, that was going to be there anyway. And I certainly have no interest in weighing everything I've removed. Would take me longer than removing it :blink:

    Dash supporting bar out. Its easily 20kg. Heater out - its heavy as well, plus the extra coolant you need for it. Then get a heated screen

    If the car they were going on, wasn't crashed into a field, that's exactly what was going to happen :thumbsup:

    S3 Big Brakes... options

    I have a set of vw racing 4pots with 356mm two piece discs that I'm looking to get rid of. Ideally, they could use new rotors. Which is why they're cheap at £500

    S3 track car questions

    Yeh and extra weight really helps the handling and braking in the rain :p People not doing trackdays underestimate just how much grip there is, wet or dry.
