    Wiser to take a standard car on track and learn how to control it, track day tuition is an even better way to learn the car. The stock Cupra is a lot more capable than 99% of drivers are.

    Having been out with Jordi Gene several times makes you realise that in the right hands the stock car is a weapon on track, 99% of people, myself included will run out of talent a lot sooner than the stock car.

    My 2 pence worth:

    Ive got a manual FWD 2016 290ST and the REVO stage 2. I wanted the stage 2 because it unlocks heal toe as you can press both accelerator and brake at the same time. I had the r600 intake, pipe and inlet and the DV+ mod same as oldboy as well as a sachs organic clutch and the REVO lower engine mount.

    No inter cooler and I have had no issues in the 3 months it has been on. Ive done spirited runs but no track days. I spoke with VHub who did the work before the remap and they confirmed that the amp might not give the full power gains based on the missing intercooler but in "normal" fast driving you are unlikely to see heat soak impacting the power. So far I have not seen or felt any issues with the power delivery etc.

    Traction on the other hand can be tricky off the line but once rolling things get pretty fast pretty quick!
