Planned Modifications

Thicker Sway Bars: Replacement of both front and rear sway bars to something stronger, possibly 24mm front, 19mm rear. This will be done in the next couple of months.

Further Modifications to Strut Tops: The strut tops are great, but we need a little more camber. This means pulling the strut tops out for a re-think and further modifications. (Completed!)

New Instrument Cluster Display: At the end of this season, we plan to pull out the existing dash fascia and replace with a pflat piece of Aluminium. This will allow us to house more gauges and have a layout that is more user friendly while driving.

Rewire of Electrical System: Again at the end of the season, while the dash is out, we plan to remove the entire wiring harness and rewire the whole car with just the essential items being connected.

New colour Scheme: The paint is getting a little tired now, so a fresh coat should help to freshen it all up. This will be done during the off season.

Quad Throttle Body Injection: Replacement of the twin webbers with Quad throttle bodies to improve performance and tunability.
Big Horsepower Engine: A new engine is planned in the next year. This engine will be capable of over 250bhp and rev to 9,000rpm. Keep an eye on the latest developments page.
