  GDI Demo 182, Rsi Spider
172 ITB car is in fast road trim.. 204bhp, AST coilovers, R888's.. so should be a good session
 
Just a big vote of thanks from me for the guys and gals from K-Tec and GDi for having the cars available for us. Never been so scared or impressed with a drive as I had today. Thought the GDi Supercharger is an amazing piece of kit and just so fast. Even impressed with the K-Tec Twingo which ferried us to the pits.
 
  ITB'd 182...
Big thanks to all the guys and girls!

Loved my little blast in the K-Tec's Ultimate 172

Was awesome!!
 
Thanks for this.

Got thee most awesome ride in a chaps 172cup that he uses for sprinting. f**king awesome driver. Smiles all round.


:)
 
  Renaultsport Clio 172 Cup
Many thanks to all at K Tec and GDi for a great day. Really enjoyed the chance to give some of you a few quick laps. I'll now try and get my head out of the front door :D. Hope to see more of you all on track soon.
 
Big thanks for this.

The GDI supercharger was awesome. Now to acquire some funds to get me one :rasp:

EDIT: What suspension did the Supercharged one's have? I have the standard cup suspension at the mo, any upgrade you recommend before increasing power?

the black sc car was on ast's and had r888's, the silver sc 172 just had some one off test shocks on it and was on toyo proxy road tyres. (which are now ruined by the way. lol)

which one did you go out in? :)
 
I went out in the 172, thought the tyres might suffer being standard road tyres lol Although was suprised that there wasn't huge wheel spin out of every bend. I prosume with r888's its even easier to get the power down?

yes tbh i didn't really struggle with getting the power down, it was more just lack of grip through the corners.

but as long as you enjoyed it then its all good :)
 
  Nothing at the mo :(
i wasnt impressed at all tbh

I was there at the ktec stand at 10 and booked myself in for the last time of the day so i could watch the cars on the track and i booked myself in for the low boost turbo because hopefully after xmas i was going to book my car in for the conversation if i liked it enough for my 182

But even though i was there at 4:35 they was apparantly to backed up. so looks like im not getting the turbo now..

Its a shame mate, it wasnt well organised but they were helpful if you were looking to tweek the engine.

sorry to hear this :( not really sure what happened there as we where all a little out of touch with who was coming down to us for what cars. also didn't help that there was a little misunderstanding with the organizers about track access first thing in the morning which led to us being around an hour behind on pre-booked test drives.
we where trying our hardest to get all the people out who wanted to, even ended up using the second supercharged car that was ment to sit up on the stand. but insted i was out solidly in it for 5 hours to ease the pressure on the other car.
it is a shame that you didnt get a ride, i realy thought we had taken out everyone that was down to go out. but on another note. if after christmas you are serious about aturbo kit then just go and test drive it at k-tec. will be a more realistic test drive in the real world anyway rather than flat out round a race track.

I thought it was really WELL orginised!
It was very popular that's all lol

I got the last passenger ride!
And I second that yes the tyres were
Loosing grip!

At one point I glanced over to the look at the
Speedo and it read between 120-125!
On the bend after the straight!
Awsome bit of driving!

The reason i booked mine in last was so i could watch the turbo clio on track and see how it did... but like it said it dont matter now. might get throttle bodies instead now
