So I thought it's about time I started a thread.....

Going back a few months I did a deal with GK Group to supply me 2 mk4's that will be turned into race cars. Some of you will have seen my race car with GK livery on it....

Fast forward a few months and yesterday I got a call from Mazda UK saying our cars along with many others will not get here til late October....bummer!!

So as I've got build slots in place for exhaust/suspension/roll cage etc this now presents me a problem!!

Answer
GK or Perrys as it's known (takeover was today) are now supplying me their demo car.
So I will have my hands on a soul red 2.0 sport nav the first week on sept

Watch this space for updates...

Paul

Everyone gets like that when they have a new toy to play with!

So now that you're getting a red one, you could do a livery like the cup concept.

Awesome Paul - would've been gutted for you if they couldn't provide the demo either.

 

Very curious to see whether the acceleration is closer to the manufacturer's official 0-60 of 7.2 or the US magazine average of 5.9-6.2...No-one seems able so far to pick up on different gear ratios etc that could account for a regional difference. I know acceleration isn't everything...but it helps!

This is going to be an epic project.......
Orded the lightweight battery and the seats

Lee my mistake when I built the first mk3 was rushing it, for that reason it will not be entered into a race until I'm happy with it.
We will be doing lots of testing though.....

I know what you mean, it needs to be competitive. Plum pudding would be a good first outing.

I noticed this difference too.be interesting to see.

Sam posted a few videos of the acceleration of the 1.5 and 2.0 on Facebook and neither looked slow.

The 1.5 is far more fun, the 2.0 runs out of Revs far to easily..... The 1.5 revs to 7,500 vs the 6,500 of the 2.0, however mine will have a raised limit with in a few days haha

However in the 1.5 I didn't struggle to keep up with the 2.0's
