It took me a while. Never had touched wiring to that depth in my life. Never could solder cable and couldn't use a multi meter properly. It comes with practise. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

I'm about as good at wiring as I am at platting turds. I can do the physical side of it like making looms, push fit block connectors etc. I just can't get my head around the theory. So I've not go that far but here's a quick run down Abs sensors removed because I'm running bias pedal box, No air con, No airbags, No alarm, n [...]

Wow 5 secs is a lot. I still think your being too hard on yourself. Or that's the impression I get. Your car is so quick, and look I'm no expert, but does the fact it's a Westfield hinder you? There an ace vehicle, and like 10 miles down the road from me. But your not mixing apples with apples. An exige would have been in a wind tunn [...]

Thanks Paul, If I'm honest I forgot to look, The little bracket at the bottom of the rank is to house the 2 stock senders. I've cut 2 squares out the bottom of the stock plastic tank and bolt them to the Ali bracket, the stock senders will click into place. The full level position on the stock tank is higher than my tank so I've cant [...]

Im assuming here........Is this the difference when teams have an open cheque book, that can throw loads of money at the best tyres, aerodymanics etc. and blow £10k to get an extra 1 sec. If youre on the cutting edge, then you cant ask any more of yourself man.You could trial and error some wings on the front so it resembles an Audi Quattro pikes [...]

Lots of welding this weekend. Anyone recommend the best way to mount it??? Strap it down with metal bands, or weld L brackets to the outside and bolt it solidl [...]

Well sheer grit and determination should see you clinch that 1 sec. Im not familiar with the layout of the track and having never done a track day ........yet.......... I cant offer any advice. Wouldn't mind taking a trip down at some time as a spectator see what its all abooot. Hopefully the brap brap brap and the smell of burning oil in the [...]

No worries mate! Yep get that tracking done, dont risk the car esp. With this awful rain were having. Plus the dsc will brake the rear wheels if putting power down and it thinks your losing traction...shows up on an 8 with ditch finder tyres on the rear,  need to get it sorted before 9k time...if youve got a lot of rear brake dust tells you it [...]
