Thanks for the response!Welcome Twolf! If you want to race, you'll have to see your category rules. I am quite sure a roll cage is needed, fixed back racing seat (I. E. no tilt) and 4 / 5 point harness. Other than that I suggest you keep the car standard to start with.
The main thing you need to do is get uprated brake pads (EBC yellow or blue) and brake fluid (Ferodo DOT 5.1 is the best bang-for-buck (R75 / 500ml at Goldwagen). Then if you have money get semi slick tyres. Then get coil over suspension.
When the bug takes you over then start lightening the car by removing the interior then aircon then interior fan and heater matrix.
OK wait, I think I'm on the wrong band wagon. You referring to "Street to strip" drag events? Not full circuit racing?Do you reckon i could take a nissan sti's and come out on top?
Because initially i was going to have an induction kit installed with a freeflow exhaust system and try and have it remapped.
Im a bit two minded about putting too much power in her though because finding new parts has been emptying my pockets Until i just decided to buy used spares and its done the trick this far.
This is my first car so i am learning and trying to find out ways to maker her perform and at the same time keep her in a good way
You know that Cape Town and Stellenbosch (where some of the best driving routes are) have of the harshest fine regimes in the country, right? Still difficult to behave sometimes.
In Stellies they move the traps regularly. Great disincentive for locals who know about this but I feel for out-of-towners who don't.its only at the bottom of the passes they trap once the winding starts you can let loose, the n1 toll road before u get to the du toits kloof pass is awesome but beware of the trap at the hotel and there is a trap just as u come out of the tunnel to worcester side same with helshoogte only as u start and again as come of the mountain slow down du toits kloof pass they only trap Paarl side after Amberg guest house so when u c the double story wood building on your left hit the brakes :thumbu p:
