Phase 11

OK chaps I do plan to do a write up but I've been so busy this weekend making 2 videos and I am going to Tech 9 tomorrow with both cars to have work done. And I am starting my holiday Tuesday with a trip to London to collect my lady friend from the airport. So at some point I will do a write up but for now here is my latest video.

Let me know what you think

This is your first vid I have seen about your build, very impressive, both the car and your production skills.

Especially enjoyed seeing them detail and then guard, did they do it all as you waited?

Car looks awesome, keep up the good work!

Great video bud, ref the Ohlins cancellation kit, you can just remove the PASM module and code it out, the kit is not needed.

They did some of it whilst I was there on the first day. They spent three days on it but I asked if they could do specific parts of the car fully so I could see the entire process then I left. I was there for most of the first day.

OK thanks for this. I had read that you could disable in PIWIS and pull the fuse but I'll pass this on to Tech 9. I hope not because that cancellation kit is £400

Figured that to be more than a day's work, looks very impressive in the vid.

How do you film the slow scans past?!

I use a Rhino Slider. Bought it whilst in the US this year. It's amazing

I looked at that kit and I was considering it but in the end I went with the Ohlins RT kit. (Being fitted tomorrow) Read very good reviews (haven't read a bad one actually). Phil at Tech 9 is going to send the dimensions to TechArt to see if their axle lift will fit.

Thanks fellas, glad you enjoyed it. I'm in London right now with my lady friend and returning for a Friday collection. I'm excited to see it finally sitting at the 'correct' ride height. I've focused so much on the ride aspect of the upgrade I haven't really thought much about how much better it will handle so I'm looking forward to finding out all this.

Phase 12

So rather unusually I have a further update very soon after the last one. This is because of the suspension saga, and the fact the last video was already longer than I'd have liked so I decided to split it into two. And also of course the suspension wasn't sorted by the time I was ready to post the last stuff.

My road trip starts tomorrow so I will write a proper update on my return but I wanted to post this video. I'm hoping to post some videos from the trip so I want to get them in the right order.

Let me know what you think of the finished product.

Early days but as far as the trip down to Plymouth, I'm very happy with them. I need to drive it on a proper road before I make final judgement but as far as comfort, they are less crashy than my standard setup with lowering springs. Wasn't expecting an improvement in comfort.
