What a job on the cage.. Excellent!!, what size and offset are the wheels??

Looking very track focused now :nice:
15x8 et35 :) they're wiiiiide. If I dont feel much benefit from the extra width they'll be going though, as the weight difference compared to my te37 setup is crazy!

Sat at work on a bank holiday bored so thought I'd chuck some pictures up :)

Not much has changed really, I spent 8 weeks trying to get it running - turned out my ECU had lost my map and my battery needed a lil boost.

Started putting my interior back together too


At this point decided I would need to make my own dash as my seat is now further back to keep my head away from the door bar and I wouldn't be able to reach the standard dash anymore.
mocked up some nice engineering drawings (only useful thing ive taken from uni so far) and gave them to a local sheet metal company who made me this

Also made some doorcards up out of ABS plastic stuff.

Started putting it together - using standard window switches, hazards and demister.


in missing fuse box here



went for failed mapping at TDI with Steve and his teg. Frustratingly, my ECU is STILL broken! I haven't got boost outputs working despite this being a new ecu :( Tdi couldn't do anything with it, and everytime they plugged into it it lost my map again. absolutely gutted to be going back for a second time and having no more boost than stock wastegate pressure :angry2::please:






Took her to the lakes after TDI anyways and had some fun getting freezing cold with no heaters :D




Steve then very kindly gave me one of his Recaro Hans Spg's :D which i absolutely love! Feel soooo safe in there! :D



And finished my dash!


Also @Beetlejuice made me this! I absolutely love it! just need to sort out getting it on now



Off to Spa and the Ring in a week in it! lets see how she copes with two days of abuse at spa! :D
Quick service next week and shes ready to go, I've been so lucky with this thing :)

Sack hondata Nicole. I don't know anyone successfully running the boost control hardware with s300. To be fair thats only 4 people, me and you being two of them but seems to be problematic.

Catch can looks f*cking awesome!
