Hi again chaps,
We have the Tarox 300mm rear brake disc conversion. Not cheap at £650 for essentially 2 discs and brackets to fit, but worthwhile for the ultimate track day GTV, which is what we are building here.
We have removed just under 200Kgs of weight from the car, and replaced the front seats with OMP RS bucket seats and harnesses.
We have the GTA clutch with lightened and balanced flywheel, along with a BMC CDA and Alfaholics stainless steel full decat exhaust system, with some of our own modifications to improve flow even further.
The GTV V6 is an EXCEPTIONAL track car. after a few sessions, we had to tweak the FK settings to stiffen up the front a little, as the poly bushed rear felt too stiff causing over steer, so dialling in some stiffnesss up front gave us a little more understeer and then the GTV took off, taking gerrards at 105mph was still within comfort for the GTV, with the tyres gripping so well that it felt invincible.
Im sure the Pagid RS range of pads need no introduction. We have always run these on our track cars over the years, and the greys with Motul RBF600 brake fluid outright refused to fade.
We had 4 drivers sharing the car, so it was out non stop, and the brakes just went on and on without any fade over the whole day, using the standard 305MM setup.
The car isnt running a Q2 diff, as we wanted to see how it coped alongside our Q2 equipped 147 GTA that was also on track. Q2 is next on the cards though, along with some other little modifications to liven it up a little.
