    Well the brake upgrade is done.

    TTRS calipers, RS3 vented dust shields, RS3 brake ducts, Vagbremtechnic caliper adapters, HEL braided brake lines, GTI Clubsport S discs, OEM pads for road and Brembo fast road/race pads for track and 5mm spacers to clear the calipers from the Team Dynamics 1.2 alloys 18x8” - 5x112 And ET45. Discs are 900 grams a side lighter than OEM and the calipers are a shocking 6.5kg a side lighter. A total saving of over 15kgs on the unsprung and unsprung rotating mass, which makes a huge difference.[B)]
    REVO engine and transmission mounts also went in the car, which tightens things up nicely, but does give a little extra NVH.

    Oh my...that is the exact same brake upgrade I’ve been kicking myself around in doing! Stock calipers are so silly heavy!

    Yep. Stupid heavy. So much extra weight that I can actually feel the difference. :funk:

    So, new year and new targets.

    This year my goals are to run a sub 12 second quarter mile with a terminal speed of over 120mph.

    Next up is to get to the Nurburgring and knock out a sub 8 minute lap. Booked for 26th October.

    100-200kph target is to do a sub 8 second GPS verified run.

    It would be great to knock out a GPS target speed maximum of over 180mph too.

    This year I’d also like to add a little more show with the go, so some sweet visual tweaks should be added too.

    Roll on 2018.

    Should be a good one. [B)]

    Yes, quite and easy fit and will all go under my 17” OZ alloys too. [B)]

    Sometimes, but it is a trade off. The Cupra is lighter and handles better than the 6R. Once up and running it is as quick as the R too.[B)]

    Interesting isn't it, they both have their strengths and weaknesses, I used to have a S2+ ED30 DSG, then Golf 7R, now, GLA 45 and soon Cupra ST 4Drive DSG, and I don't miss FWD at all :happy:

    Fwd Cupra lacks straightline traction, but everywhere else it is a great car

    Absolutely bloomin' crazy! I love it! So when's the next run at the Pod? I'm guessing you're praying for ideal ambient temperature and conditions on the day for that perfect run.

    I’d settle for a day when I can get there and it isn’t either raining or snowing!
    The new surface at the Pod is supposed to be a lot better for fwd launches now.
    Hoping for 11’s this year, plus a few trackdays. [B)]

    Isn't the RS3 brakes (and shields) 370 mm while the Clubsports are 340?

    I have two maps, one for track, which is around 440bhp and lower, safer boost. Then a higher boost map for the Dragstrip, which is running around 470bhp at 1.95bar.[B)]

    The shields aren’t quite that big, but do stick out a little from the discs.
