    Oil coolers / baffled sumps

    I used stock air box before going FI, but I've got oil cooler at the same time as TD turbo kit. Sorry can't be more helpful, but by the look of it I think it should be fine. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    (Not so) Newbie

    Hey Mani, welcome onboard. Dont think order matters that much, whatever your preferences are. If anything I would say: - suspension before or at the same time as wheels (will give you wider choice if you go with coilovers). - wheels and tyres before FI (its hilarious how fast you can loose traction with a bit more power). In W London you are pretty close to a number of circuits. Both Bedford and Silverstone will be just over an hour away, Donington probably 1.5 ish. Don't worry taking stock car on track, its perfectly fine and will give you better idea what mods you would want to do. I did several track days on stock car before my 1st mods (suspension, wheels, front brakes and TD NA tune). We have a "club" track day at Bedford on Jan 30th (provided it can still go ahead) which imo is a perfect option for 1st track day (even in wet), then Silverstone on Feb 19th (also good for novices despite being fast circuit) and I will also organise group booking for Donington on March 20th. Hopefully will see you around! Enjoy! Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    Trackday - Brands Hatch GP - Sep 3rd 2021

    Track Day - Brands Hatch GP Friday, September 3rd, 2021 £399 (Opentrack) One of the few chances each year that the exclusive Grand Prix Circuit is open to the public and this is your opportunity to drive it View Dates / Book Now | OpenTrack There is nothing else quite like Brand Hatch’s Grand Prix Circuit in the country. Blasting down Pilgrims drop, flat out towards Hawthorn Bend before taking on the Westfield Bend. Then, on to Dingle Dell and the sharp left-hander that is Stirling bend at which point you leave the woods and come under the bridge hard on the brakes for Clearways. This challenging array of high-speed corners and flat out straights should be on the list of “must-dos” for every track day driver in the country. This General Car Track day has an Open Pit Lane format enabling you to go out on the circuit as you choose. Please pay special attention to the noise limit listed. https://www.msvtrackdays.com/car/circuits/brands-hatch/ If anyone has a good videa pls post in comments

    Trackday - Bedford GT - Monday, Oct 4

    Trackday - Bedford GT - Monday, October 4th £155 (Opentrack) View Dates / Book Now | OpenTrack There is nowhere else in the world quite like Bedford Autodrome. The venue has been purpose-built for speed and space. The track, which is just under 5 miles long, was designed from scratch by former F1 driver Jonathan Palmer. It is laid out across a 384 acre site, with vast run-off areas that provide optimum safety. There’s no motor racing at the Autodrome, which means no crowd-protecting safety barriers or concrete walls – guests can drive to their limits safe in the knowledge that pushing too hard will result in nothing more than a harmless spin across endless flat grass. Noise limit 101db static/ 87.5db drive-by. Check yours in advance to avoid disappointment. https://www.msvtrackdays.com/car/circuits/bedford-autodrome/

    Daily driven/ track day brake pads

    Check disks if you feel judder. I had a slight lip on my, giving judder only when braking at speed over 80 mph (Paddock Hill at Brands was very challenging due to vibration). My experience with pads so far (Ksports BBK fronts, stock rear) - ECB Yellowstuff were absolutely fine, good combination for daily and occasional track day. Not too much dust, no noise. Dont last though, particularly after going FI. - DS2500 front, ECB Yellowstuff rear - ok, but much better with ECB Bluestuff rear. Good life (fronts after 5 track days were just over 1/2 worn, rears lasted over 2 yrs, probably 15+ track days would have lasted couple more). Lots more dust, occasional sqeel but not too bad. I have tried ECB Bluestuff on front and rear, but fronts crumbled on edges and I got a lip on the disk, hence had to change them. After putting BBK on rear as well (DS2500 front and rear) brakes still feel weird with ABS engaging way too early (better in track mode, but Bedford was not to try it out tbf). Need another track day to get used to them. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

  13. We have plenty of space at club stand if anyone keen to join Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  14. I think we might have enough space at the club stand for another car. But online tickets are sold out and they will not be selling tickets at the gate. If someone is not going may be they can sell tickets to you. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  15. You should be able to use either Tunerfest or Go Japan! ticket (you may need to log in to print it out though), but the ticket did not come with the email. One of the links in the e-mail is the Car Club pass (you fill details yourself) you would need both. They would scan the tickets when you arrive and and will direct you to our area
