    And more thoughts flying around of selling up, really does seem to be the thing to do at the moment.

    Such a shame so many are looking at this route :(

    I haven't actually decided on anything yet. Took it for a drive to the MOT tester earlier and I had forgotten how rapid this car is!

    I don't want to break it, I will probably keep it for next season and see what I want to do then.

    Still need to bring it to you for a post cam Dyno.

    This man talks sense, give it 4WD and it will be completely different car. It will be a proper supercar slayer.

    4WD would be awesome with this car, really ridiculous actually! Lol.

    But I can understand if he fancies a 997 Turbo AND can afford it comfortably in his life (not everyone can), then why not. It is a shame though as you've not tracked the LCR yet! :p

    I've been out in it and I agree it is insanely fast, without a doubt the fastest car ive been in. But 4WD would allow more power to be used more of the time, plus he could unleash the full potential of the engine.

    4WD and track the thing, or sell it to someone who is going to do that.

    :)

    agree but with haldex comes weight which will dull its power to weight a little

    He can just take out the R32 interior to counter this ;)

    Time to move on

    Gents,

    Its decided time to move on!

    Car will be broken up into parts as nobody will stump up the cash that I want for it as a whole car. It's sad as somebody could have enjoyed one of the most powerful road going LCR's in the country!

    List of parts is massive, only the best stuff used all the parts and my contact details will be coming up in facebook groups and on a popular auction site.

    It's been great fun, seriously rapid car but I want something a bit more classy like a 997 turbo or e93 M3 i'll probably end up BT'ing those too anyway! :)

    Work won't start until after VW Action and towards the end of September in case anyone decides they want to give me a decent offer for the car.

    Cheers
