Those are some very nice mods!

Are you on standard suspension?

At the moment it is on stock suspension. Once funds are all good, I'll be putting on some KW XTA's on there. In the mean time I'll be doing more subtle interior mods. Post suspension, cam and injectors will most likely be on the cards

Must be pretty fun on track with all the mods you've done so far :thumbup1:

I'll be keeping an eye on this cos the engine/gearbox mods you've done so far are what I'll be wanting soon :lurk5:
The clutch is pretty easy to get used to on the street. Once you start doing hard pulls you will feel how strong the clutch is. It takes the gear and power without flinching. The reduced flywheel weight also means acceleration is greatly increased as there is less mass to gather inertia. It has a very aggressive sound once the engine reaches above 4,000rpm. I can probably upload a video of it. What are your plans?

The LSD is a god send if you like to drive a bit mad ;) Make sure you get the Motorsport edition IC. What exhaust do you have atm? The manifold will make it f'ing loud (coming from a non res miltek). What brake & suspension setup you got?

i was just reading through your spec and noticed you run neuton tyres, whats your thoughts on these?
The neuton's are great in the dry and warm. Wet not so great, but my car lives in storage in the winter
