Posted 14 February 2010 - 11:35 AM

What started off as a wild idea between a few of us on the forum is now edging ever closer to reality.

The brief: Build a track ready MK4 platform car. Car has to be lightweight, safe and able to transport driver and passenger to various venues across the UK and Europe. (It also has to be road legal if we want to drive it on the 'ring)

The people: Harveysduvet, Wilko and myself Tabs

Suppliers who've helped: AutoPS - AmD Essex - SuperPro Bushes - Brakes International - Greenlight Insurance - VWSpeed - Forge Motorsport - Awesome GTI - Revo - Milltek - Autotecnix - K-Mac Caster and Camber Kits - Opie Oils - SFS Performance

The car: Bora Sport 1.8T (Because they handle better :D )

The plan makes use of our collective experience over the past few years of improving the frankly woeful MK4 chassis. A brief run down:

  • Completely strip interior, inc. sport seats, headlining, lower dash, airbags etc.
  • Bolt in cage
  • Lightweight seats
  • Four Point harnesses
  • TT/R32 spec suspension
  • Completely poly bushed
  • Racing spec coilovers
  • 6 pot racing brakes
  • Lightweight 17" alloys
  • Engine tweaks - to be revealed!

With the right amount of power, less weight and agile handling we're confident we can build a reliable, competitive, track car for less than 5K. Inc. price of the car.
We'll be using this topic to keep track of the work being done.

This how she currently looks:

 Sounds like good fun tabs.


If you guys are interested I've got a set of light weight 17" ABT alloys (made by OZ) that I'd be willing to sell to you for very little. They're not much to look at as the polished lip is well in truely in need of a refurb, but would make a cracking track wheel (which is why I got them)


Good luck with the project though. Can't wait to see the engine mods with the combined experience of you guys.


Andy

 Engine wiae it will be along the lines of


remap, full exhaust, intercooler, and all boost and water hoses changed, sai removal, and simplification of all the crap under the inlet manifold. and baffled sump, and maybe oil cooler.


Should give us a solid 230hp, and hopefully we can get the car down to less than 1100kg, so quick enough and hopefully bullet proof.

Looking forward to this.


Having bought at least 4 uk-mkivs.net stickers in my time I feel this will entitle me to at least a lap around the ring [:)].


£5K is some target, although looking at some of the goodies available in the classified i.e. quick racks then it could be do-able.

That's good to hear,my experience of a 230bhp 1.8t screams that an lsd is needed.

Who's doing the mapping?

The Bora!  Picking up tomorrow, so hopefully some of the obligatory grainy, out of focus mobile phone shots taken in the glare of the lights from a Tesco petrol station will follow shortly.
