    Golf GTI Track Car Project

    This car started out as a standard GTI 8v I saw for sale up the road.



    I started to strip it out and fitted all performance parts I had gathered from all the cars i'd broke.

    Eibach springs
    TT wheels
    EBC pads
    Pipercross filter








    So we did out first trackday at oulton park.

    Re: Golf GTI Track Car Project

    Last weekend we came back from second round at oulton park, where the car has progressed from the first time.

    OMP roll cage
    Polycarbonate windows
    Plated sunroof
    Raceland buckets









    Next from here is I have bought a GTI 16v off ebay for a engine conversion due to the 8v not quite having enough power

    Ive got some vids to follow.........

    Hoping there should be a good improvement with the weight the car has lost. Plus I couldn't pass on a whole 16v car for £250

    This is a real budget racer.

    You'll have to let us know when you next go the track and we'll come watch. Love those days out.

    Encourage beaver get his MK2 done and he might let me even do a few laps in it.
