    MOT passed Smile

    not first time, needed rear drivers side caliper, rear drivers side handbrake cable & rear drivers side tyre

    robbed a caliper off a Ibiza Cupra Sport that Matt's breaking, handbrake cable was 15 (ish) & stuck 2 near new Firestone's on back (60 off eBay, 200 miles on them)

    ....

    central locking has been playing up....... sometime wasn't locking at all

    swapped the pump thingy in the boot & it's works first time now....... i wasn't expecting an easy fix

    ....

    yes

    it looks like it's going to be at Mallory Park race circuit rather than York Raceway...... i'd prefer York to be honest

    I'm guessing it's all about the weight, rather than how they look then!

    What do you think to the handling of the VR...? I would have thought it's world's away from the Polos...!

    they should be quite a bit lighter than the BBS & Fox wheels i have........ brake cooling should be better too

    OZ Ultraleggera's are even lighter than these ATS's....... around 1kg lighter Shocked

    lot more weight in VR of cause, but handling isn't to different really

    the design of the front suspension on mk3 Polo is rubbish..... if you enter a corner to quickly the camber on the wheel changes quite a bit & it understeers

    VR understeers due to the weight been quite far ahead of the front axle, rather than the weight of the engine

    8v GTI will handle better than a VR (i'd think) with them having the engine sat al the back of the bay

    .....

    going to check/replace the suspension bushes & get the suspension geometry done before i do a trackday with it

    there's a day at Elvington on 14th of Feb....... may book that and cross my fingers that the weather will be OK

    i'll be putting this up FOR SALE in early to mid March

    reason is....... too many car's

    mk1 Golf Driver goes on the road in March........ Gold mk1 Golf trackday car needs to be done....... & i've also got an other project car that will be quicker than the VR (top secret at the mo, will appear mid March)

    not sure what price the VR will be yet....... will still be pretty cheap

    paint & dents on the drivers side doors will be done...... so will passenger side wing

    may even paint the bonnet & spare tailgate

    ....

    if anyone wants it "as is" or without the Hella twins/Red rears i'll do it cheaper & sell sooner

    bear in mid tax runs out end of March & i can't tax it til 5th of March at the soonest
