    WANTED - Road/Track car

    Pretty sure it has a forged engine so I'd be less worried than one without. It certainly should be quite a beast on track!

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/GT86.Drivers.Club/permalink/2015620845241154/ That's a link to my post. If you message Sebastian through there he should be able to help you out.

    Fitted the third brake light lowering kit. It was all fairly straightforward - probably the trickiest bits are removing and refitting the parcel shelf itself. Looks more OEM than OEM imho.

    To chip is with what Will has posted I had my fluid changed somewhere who didn't bleed the master cylinder and had the spongy pedal. Then Rogue Motorsport did it for me and bled the master cylinder and the problem went away.

    Received this kit yesterday that removes the 'legs' that the standard 3rd brake light sits on on the parcel shelf. I'd never liked the standard arrangement but also wasn't a fan of the stick on options available as a replacement so thought I'd give this a try. Hoping to fit it at the weekend so I'll add some pictures after I've done it.

    I bought some LED tinted side repeaters as I've never been a massive fan of how the OEM ones stand out against the black. These are much subtler.

    After last week's two trackdays the car was a real mess. I had the car detailed today by Lee at Classic Mobile Valet including full decontamination, machine polishing and ceramic coating. If you're Midlands based I'd definitely recommend giving Classic Mobile Valet a try Few before and after and reflection shots

    I believe the EcuTek only rev matches with braking but I may be wrong.

    It's probably a bit of both. I have it on the EcuTek setting I use but also try to do it myself.

    Cheers It's a weird one - I've watched videos from Anglesey and the previous Bedford and I can't hear a difference so I am a bit puzzled!

    Mic is in the same place for both the Anglesey and Bedford videos. I did, however, have a black flag for noise which I haven't had before with this current exhaust set up - I need to have a look and see if a weld might have failed somewhere or something (I had to have a weld repaired on the HKS exhaust last year so that may be a prime candidate).

    Video from Friday's trackday at Bedford. First section of the video was my first lap of the day which quickly got red flagged due to the torrential rain (I couldn't see where the track was at times!) Second part of the video was after it had dried up a little between downpours. The standing water caused a few squeaky bum moments and I've never driven on track when it was this slippery before. R compound tyres and torrential rain weren't the best mix!
