Looked very quick for a little car Dan! Could hear the tyres rubbing at points and it was interesting for him to say it's a bit diesel like because the stage 2 graph looks a bit that way obviously the turbo is holding stage 2 back massively and the reason peak power isn't much over stage 1... Stage one seems a bit more petrol like in its power delivery and that's not meant as a insult just an observation stage 2 seems like you will ride the torque and short shift
Yeah still experimenting with the ride height, so they wont rub for long. Stage 2 just adds power all the way through the range from Stage 1. Just has a very strong mid range pull as well now. Where it used to run out of puff at just over 4k revs it now pulls hard all the way to 6k.

I'm thinking of trying some Vogtland springs on ours hopefully it won't rub...

Running 205 tyres on the standard wheels with 7.5 mm spacers front and 12 mm rear.

They lower 25mm's over standard.

Keep up with the good work on your car 😎👍

Excellent thread. Looks like great. Love the mods and especially the sound. Have you considered rear disc brake conversion. Not strictly necessary but gives a more purposeful side view.

Yes am looking at rear disks. JBS are looking at options. Probably a quite expensive mod tho

Had the car booked in for some front speakers, a DSP and the sub to be wired in along with a load of sound deadening. Obv delayed due to Covid. Now with the current situation not sure if I can go ahead... Pay cut already and who knows who will have jobs in a few weeks :(. might have to lose the deposit.
