    Cool The White ph1 172 track car. Epic content!

    Well as many of you will know i was nearing completion on my 172 cup track car, but there was still a list of jobs as long as my arm to do. So after seeing this car on here many times when RS Tuning owned it, when DannyR broke it and when Richardo re built it i loved it and with my ITB's on it would be complete So as soon as Rich put the add up and asking for px for a 172 cup i was on the phone, but wanting to keep my ITB's it worked out to much hassle to swap, so i left it.

    Then a few weeks ago i saw Rich put his cup up for sale as the ph1 hadn't sold, i got the note pad out and worked out what i could get from breaking my 172 and it worked out i could buy the ph1 and not be to much down on the dollar! So i PM'd Rich a silly offer which he rejected as expected, but we met in a happy middle

    So earlier on today i got the train down to Rayleigh to collect the car, Rich was a top bloke, picked me up from train station, took me to the bank and the post office and by 10:30 i was heading back to Norfolk.

    Rich also said he had a magazine that the car was featured in that he meant to give me, would be good to keep with the car.

    Totally love the car, suspension is set a bit to stiff at the moment so will have a tinker with that at some point, other than that i'm very happy, goes well for a standard engine too.

    So got home around lunch time, had some food then cracked on with stripping down the 172 Cup & the White ph1. Got the majority of the Cup engine bay stripped down ready for breaking and for ITB's and exhaust to go onto the ph1, only got round to getting Inlet Plenum off the ph1 and front bumper, started getting dark after that.

    Got DannyR coming round tomorrow to help with getting the ITB's fitted, Omex spliced into loom, and fitting my Oreca Group N exhaust with 182 manifold.

    Also averaged 53mpg coming home with some occasional spirited driving too

    Well I've said enough now, here are the pictures, looking forward to cleaning the car as it really needs it right now!

    So here's the car upon arriving home.







    Bit of it's history with RS Tuning on the plates



    How my 172 Cup used to look


    What's left of my cup


    Bumper off, inlet plenum off, slam panel removed ready for ITB's


    Camber....




    So it's been a long day, i'm now off for some dinner

    Enjoy my new project, bigger update tomorrow... Hopefully!

    53mpg FTW such a light car with nice breathing mods for that figure.

    Love the negative camber in the pics......

    Believe me when i say it was a struggle knowing it was going, but i know it's gone to a good home and know with the parts Lewis is fitting it will finish the car off spec wise.

    I absolutely loved building it, driving it on the Nurburgring, owning it. I have my reasons for selling.

    Lewis, enjoy it as much as i did

    Was actually getting 56mpg to start with when i was taking it really easy lol was still doing 70mph tho

    I can totally understand, it's actually really hard for me knowing i'll never drive my Cup again as i do love that car.

    Thanks mate i certainly will, plenty of track days and Nurbergring at the end of May
