    D shaped Steering wheel

    But then when you steer that room disappears surely? IMO the best thing I did was buy a smaller omp wheel and snap off boss. More enjoyable to drive, better lighter wheel and it comes off if I need Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk

    Sean's Naughty 1.6

    Car is looking better every update! I'd advise to get coilovers instead of just springs mate.. I have coilies and love it on my 1.2, once you lower it a bit, you can keep adjusting, where as on springs your stuck at that height I run TAs, rear spring only and front in the summer I drop...

    Big brakes 1.2 ?

    We literally pulled the full setup off a 182, dropped the beam, fitted new sensors as the sport ones don't work on a non sport, fitted new pads and bolted it on and then connected and bled everything I'm honestly really happy with it, I never planned on the conversion, but circumstances meant I...

    Bens orange 1.2

    because, if you look at the alignment printout, the rear is out by about .3 deg, so i have to correct that, i assume the car the beam came off wasnt perfect. Doesnt drive straight because of the rear thrust angle, so i have to counteract that with the steering wheel atm, since the fronts are...
