Haha, thought they must be.

Then i would take Olly up on the offer, I had the twin plate and in stop start traffic and hill starts it was a PITA. Great on open road, but this is the UK.....

I drove a car with an aggressive paddle clutch every day to work and back for a year or so. While it's a PITA in heavy traffic it's certainly not a big problem. Just end up with one leg larger than the other!

I know it's a bit subjective, just wanted to give the OP a heads up on this potential issue as per my own experience.

Some lovely choice toys on there and it looks stunning in white. Defiantly the choice colour for the car....

I have to agree paddle clutches are a bit nasty to use every day, the old 'on / off' syndrome..... but twin and triple with sprung hubs tend to be pretty usable on the road.... sintered plates in them can make them grabby....

All home safely, and surprisingly I've used a little more fuel on way home than going there!!! Funny how that works being the same distance!

Firstly let Me start by say THANKYOU.
Kev Adam Dan Andy and Pat all of these people have been apart of this experience. Now I had to go for two days which was annoying as initially We said all done and dusted 1 day.

Let me say what a [email protected]#r I am. What needed to be done and all the extra time needed to put in do what I wanted or have put in for ecu to monitor. Thay Did fantastic

I was sceptical at first with what previously happened there, unfortunately everyone knows unfortunately it will never go away. But let me say For me the whole experience was phenomenal, I gave them the opportunity an opportunity for me to get my own opinion they did amazing and NO one should have reservations about booking there car in.

Thank you Guys apart from Adam.... my f@@king lunch Chinese had prawns in!! Your sakes.

Ok so Numbers. Genuinely I didn't mind the final number providing the map was spot on and safe until engines in and Then I care about the number!
So power was

370 HP 410 ftlb @1.51 bar 22psi.

Graphs will be up tomorrow

This is the first time I've used the loud pedal fully! I am fabagastered genuinely I'm a dog with two d--ks the car feels amazing.

The power to boost from what I am aware is fantastic. What's more Zero Det not an ounce through mapping or road test.
Afr's are perfect
It feels amazing.

A True testament to Pat. The Syvecs S6+ is the nuts it does more than I understand it drives very smooth cruise control works fine. What more can I say.

Thank you Guys for helping me get 1 stage further to my dream.

What I will have is something unique and hopefully amazing. It was a dream car dream spec becoming reality.

If everything goes to plan there is a track day Monday 22nd (I believe) at Bedford. Providing everything goes swimmingly the Ill be there so pop along

If anyone fancies it come Scoobynet take over!! Knowing my luck I'll get an amazing Map and the car will be to flipping noises!

Will take you up on that based on your last post! I'm extremely jealous as yours is above and beyond what I want from mine.

Well I'm sitting here now deciding if to book in or not.

Pat was very happy with the car. I'm very happy with the car I have no reason not too!!
I can't seem to find the numbers already booked in for it! I'm sure it's somewhere!!

So Just clocked a whooping 7000 miles now!

It's had the hardest 500 miles of its life! I did change the oil before the remap at the clinic
Ecu is so impressive!! Not an ounce has been used so am really happy! All the numbers temps look fantastic I have used the ECU data log and she is perfect.

Antilag well it works sounds friggin amazing now I have used it doubt I'll need to again
I tried rolling Antilag again the noises it makes is amazing. But I haven't purchased the ecu for it so possible wasted on me.

I used launch control just to see!! OMG that is the nuts! I'm into going fast but not sacrificing any reliability or potentially abusing or damaging something so guess that can be put to one side now.

The Syvecs ECu is spectacular so smooth again big boot To Pat and the clinic. He is a legend

So Despite being for sale, I've collected a lot of parts over the last year and as I have full intentions of going on track Monday
Bedford If you fancy it anyone???

I booked the day off who likes working Fridays anyway! AND THIS HAPPENED!




ISC Pillow ball adjustable lower control arms<br/><br/>Super sexy



OHLINS OHLINS OHLINS OHLINS



Whiteline 22mm rear roll bar<br/>Whiteline roll bar mount brace<br/><br/>Cusco roll bar mount brace, these stop them flexing forward and rearward unfortunately due to a joint in my exhaust I couldn't fit the left side, so didnt fit right so chassis flex stayed the same.



Going in



Whiteline Rear toe Arms



Cusco adjustable Trailing arms, I can adjust my wheel base length now. I found My right side was 7mm longer than left. After tomorrow they will be equal!!



All together





Oooosshhhh more sex



Whiteline steering rack bush kit! I will confess 50% got fitted I am likely gonna fit a 2014+ quick rack so will put in there!



Steering mount support bracket. I have on good authority this is amazing! I will not be able to confirm how good as I've done all at once.<br/><br/>If it's anything like the master cylinder stopper this will be amazing!



22mm front roll bar too



Cusco subframe brace, so much stronger than the thin tin from factory



CUSCO H frame and front arm rear mount brace.



Steering rack brace fitted



Whiteline roll center correction kit! Well why not I dropped it a little



Nearly there

I ran up the road quickly! Well if drove like crap! Full geometry setup in the morning
Then I'll report Back! But it's hopefully gonna be epic all ready for the track day!

Yeah I've been on the which Brake boat.

Ap's obviously are the Mutts Nuts but pad choice I want needs machining so mighty expensive then
Alcon Have a phenomenal Caliper and Kit! but costly replacement parts.

The PF I have in there feel fabulous TBH can't wait to see what happens when I can give some consistent abuse.

So suspension was set up Saturday
Settings were
2 degrees chamber all round
Zero toe all round
The front castor has 7 degrees which by all account is very good!!

Anyway feels very positive tracks slightly more now and definitely feels stable!

And today as I promised myself





Unfortunately I didn't get to do many laps
Car static DB is 98.9!
And very close on track board waved!!!

The main reason was I lost brakes! It's my fault I ran out of time Friday was away Saturday and did a quick job this morning so wasn't able to get brake lines and rbf600 fluid in... I boiled the fluid. My preparation wasn't good enough and possible the first time in this project I rushed some thing.

Very quick bleed brakes are perfect again so my own fault and lesson learnt. It take so long to do get here I was too excited... no harm done.

Next we uncovered an issue with ecu settings! With my over cautious mind set the tolerances for ecu safety features are to close. It tripped FUEL pressure fault on straight!! I had over half a tank and was accelerating!!! I doubt I pull that many G's!! Anyway it has a window of half a bar and dipped .1 under.... it did its job and This will be addressed.

Massive thumbs up for syvecs. Thumbs down for my over cautiousness!

So the several laps I got to drive her in full anger mode!! Wow she handles amazing she turns in on the button. Slight off power over steer but very controllable.

Very impressed Question is and I knew it would be strip it and throw a cage in or not!!!

Raggy I'll sell anything except my children for the right price.

Engines paid for as I said I wasn't stopping build unless car was sold. I will use the car too the max if built.

It's a product If the car sold I could easily sell the engine. I offered the car to someone who's going to show and shine her, give her the life she probably deserves. I put her up for sale and the next day I spent another 300, I didn't think she would go. Most people when We get to this price tag can get a 2015 one despite having around 10000 spent on her and half the miles of the 15 plate people would rather that.
I feel this is amazing looking better looking in fact with the wing.

Suspension and everything really apart from items ordered the other day I already had. I'd rather put on the car and sell with the car for 1000 less than try and sell privately and have muppets offer silly prices for brand new stuff.

If that's all they can afford go buy your teins.... (not saying anything wrong with them) but I have ohlins as you know from your purchases quality speaks for itself and a lot are not in my fortunate position.
