Hi guys little update for those who might be interested.
Really been enjoying my car. Most of the big jobs now completed it time to perfect and enjoy the beast she has become. Received my new enlarged airbox filter neck from Joel the other day. So will be modifying the airbox again soon to fit the billet neck inlet.
Also have ordered my gorgeous new reclinable lightweight bespoke bucket seats which are now being made. Look forward to sharing them when they are fitted in the car. I have made sure they look aesthetically as Alfa would have wanted.
Also had my second track day in her at Bedford autodrome yesterday. Ned kindly invited me down during the week while i was at Autolusso for my Mot.
She felt amazing on track. My new Carbotech track pads with my grooved GTA discs performed flawlessly all day, not a hint of overheating, so over the moon. I find the performance friction pads are the best for on road use though. But the Carbotech for the track are sublime for my GT. Also this was the first time out with the new rear chassis brace, the car felt really lovely and neutral on the limit and the amount of grip was staggering and confidence inspiring. I really get a huge sense of what the car is doing, something i struggled to do with my last modified German coupe i used on track.
I also got to drive Ned's simply awesome sequential 3.8 GTA. Which was an utter privilege. It took me a coupe of laps to get used to the nature of the sequential box, and then it was pure heaven. Being used to the GT's chassis on track getting into the GTA was home from home. Especially as Neds GTA has the same chassis mods as my GT. This car is simply awesome and a credit to Autolusso. Huge thanks to Ned for the opportunity to drive his baby on track, i think i did her proud out there.
I have to say i came away absolutely enamoured with the Alfa brand yesterday. I spent most of my 20's and 30's in performance Audi's. And never for a minute would i imagine i would change my allegiance to another brand like this. But Alfa has done that. The transition is complete. It hit me properly yesterday, after an awesome day on track, as she is now this GT without doubt is my favourite car i have owned to date.
