    ] A few months back now I bought a msa logbooked clio rolling shell.
    The plan was to buy a donar car for the engine and brakes and make one car out of the two.

    I ended up buying this 172 cup off eBay, it had bucket seats, coilovers and sabelt wheel.

    But I got offered to much profit on the rolling shell and it was sold with in a week of owning it. IMG_3951.PNG I

    One of my road car IMG_1332.PNG IMG_1333.PNG IMG_1331.PNG IMG_1329.PNG First up was to get the belts done, new battery and new alternator.

    Then took it to three sisters in Wigan in the rain.

    Found out a few things. One being the vmaxx coilovers are shocking

    Manged to get an ex clio cup racer cage. I'm going to be adding an X door bar to the drivers side to match.

    I'm new to the track, why did you spin right there? I was expecting it at a tight corner.
    Car sounds great BTW.

    Thank you. And it was a number of things, I let off just going over the brow, and I put the right front wheel on the grass. My mate races in the Porsche Carreras cup and he did the exact same spin.

    After that spin I came in and found the power steering sensor leaking fluid. So that might of had something to do with it too

    Wasn't expecting the spin there tbh, thought it was going to be at Old Hall.

    Finished stripping the rest of the interior out today. Ready for the cage fitting this week.

    Also fitted my pop off steering wheel boss and ordered some PBS front and rear pads and some brembo HC discs IMG_1460.JPG IMG_1466.JPG IMG_1465.JPG IMG_1461.JPG IMG_1462.JPG

    Small update.

    The roll cage is getting fitted and sprayed at the minute. I should get the car back early next week.

    I've ordered the PBS front and rear pads, bargain at £120 for the both. Supposedly compared to RC6 but half the price.
    Hopefully they've be better than the yelllow stuff I'm running at the minute.

    I've also bought 2 new seats.

    So my omp seats will be for sale soon.

    I've also booked Donington for the 9th of August.
