Hi CharlieWell what would you expect them to say ?
Micky I was a track martial/instructor for 5 years at Donnington park on bike. I and my fellow instructors could never count the amount of lads that arrived with fancy and expensive suspension on their bikes and that kit made the bikes un rideable.".. Ohlins fit hideously firm springs. A bike with a very firm spring is never going to handle no matter what setup is dialled in. They genuinely would have lapped quicker on the standard kit fitted to the bikes when they left the factories.
Of course they were amazed and disappointed after spending thousands of pounds after reading bike magazines or going on YouTube.
Your money do as you see fit 👍👍
Respect to you! Sounds like you have a lot of experience with enthusiastic petrol heads who are willing and able to indulge in their passions!
This whole UP GTI journey has been a wonderful distraction and pleasure from some very bad stuff in my life and in that respect, I can't have any regrets! However, I do want to feel that somehow I've created something unique and gives me a chance to explore more of he car's potential o the track!
There are inherent risks of "what on earth was I thinking of". But as they say "the proof of he pudding is in the eating" Time will tell.
