cheers bud, maybe next time you're at llandow, I'll be doing a day there maybe next month myself. my thinking is the n/a is pretty quick now, can't imagine another 100hp on top. frightening Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I guess it's all relative. I find the car more serious in terms of feel and how you have to drive it. I used to be able to rag the NA on track but now I find my skill level isn't good enough to do the same with the sc yet. On the road it's even more impressive in my opinion, the torque is awesome.

Forced update today, going to Spa next month and learned you need a fire extinguisher in the car.

No time to fit the plumb in system I have for a winter project so used a bit of spare aluminium plate to make two strap brackets to hold this into the front seat bolts.

Incoming update. Was so excited I couldn't wait to post a pic until I've got the wheels on the car, they are still at the workshop.

New wheels to be fitted soon, wanted to get away from the TD look and wanted super light weight and these are incredibly light, forged rims. Weight is 5.6/8.0kg f/r. OEM are about 10/12 so gives around an 18kg unsprung reduction.

In need of a refurb but I might plastidip them until the tyres wear out then do it in one go.

And before anyone mentions - I know they are 4 stud lol ;)j

Thanks, yes they are the Exige 260 Cup forged wheels. I think they suit the vx shape more than the exige.

Onto my 5th different seat in the car with these Tillett B5's.

Couple of teething issues in fitting which was a pig of a job. Fouls the centre console etc.

Very comfy and hug you like crazy. Just need my other harness to arrive now.

Cheers. Struggling to work out what to do about the centre console. Unless the seat is fully back it's in the way. I'm a short arse so I need the seat further forward. Any ideas anyone???

I might buy an s2 cover and butcher it to fit. I'll keep an eye on eBay...
