Nice to see it's not all about power and handling and the trim is getting some attention too, fair play Stefan.

Do your paddles work?
Yeah the interior needs to look the part too Doc, it's been on the cards for a while but only just got round to sorting it.

Yes the paddles work perfectly, I need to alter the position though as I'm not happy with how the sit at the minute.

Ther fabrication on this is superb, something i always wanted to make more time to try and learn. Nothing in this level obviously. Do you still use it as a day to day or the more you go, the less its road friendly?

It gets used daily and is really usable, the ride quality is nice and it drives better than most modified road cars Iv'e been in. The only slight inconvenient thing is having to lift your leg over the door bars when getting in & out but they're not that high so it's still pretty easy.

As long as its still usable, that's the main thing id always look for. Ive build full track cars before and went straight from the road version and taken it off the road, full track and only enjoyed it on the track. But that's what it was built for i suppose.

Yeah I already have a full on track car that isn't really that road friendly so when we were building it I made sure it was more for the road but will be good / safe on the track.

Always good to drive to the track, race and drive home again without loading a trailer etc.

The Caddy is away having the 4wd rear end sorted at Slide Motorsport in West Yorkshire so while it's there we thought we may as well get some parts ready for it's return.

We chose to powdercoat the parts in the same colours as out logo which I think has turned out really well.

Rear end parts to follow....

are these the 17z/18z callipers? they s3 alloy hubs? they without needing crazy offset wheels? ive been sat looking at a set of these for my touran but fitting those hubs and from what i have read they can cause issues due to the alloy hubs having wider ears for the carrier bolts
