    What adaptation did you do to fit the battery box?

    I have had to cut the rear of the body as there is not enough room around the back battery.

    Then with some of the plastic I cut i attached it to the body so that it fits the MK3 Battery tray.

    Currently it is sitting to high and I will be lowering it which I think is a cut on the bottom left hand corner to fit over the support for the intake.

    Once i have it fully set I will take some pics and add them but as you can see from the pictures on my car there is very little room so I have no movement of the body, Top sits on top with no issues.

    The big difference is mine is built just for me.

    Wheels were chosen because I love the look but also they are very strong and light weight for the track.
    Size / offset (more by luck than judgement) are all the car will support on the lowered suspension.

    Suspension was to allow me to lower but still have a comfy car and use the DCC Systems- which I do.

    The basic engine mods should be the same just a choice of what turbo and pipework / intercooler & pipework / Mount Kit you want to install.

    Maps are the key that holds all the above together and have to say very happy with mine.

    Then there is the brakes and I prefer mine to the Brembo's because they work great and I dont have to pay even more for a badge.

    Last difference is my car will be lighter (as its a car not an estate)
