A very interesting read and I like your approach and commitment?

You say "Track Built car" are you looking at a particular area of the track to achieve a record or is it ultimate track fun car?

Thanks. Not really built for any records, just want it to be the ultimate toy really!

Quick update for today: Still stripping various bits of interior. Before the standard GTI seats were sold I thought I'd weigh them out of interest. 74.1kg they come in at so a decent bit of weight saving there. Hoping to replace them with a pair of Recaro Pole Positions:



Also wondered how this thing managed to get itself in there:

75 for the pair lol.
Rs4 / s3 buckets are about half the weight. They eere significantly lighter anyway.

I should have worded that better, 75kg for fronts and backs. Bet you can't wait, where did you get yours from out of interest?

Bought mine through Storm Developments (I sold the owner my RS4 seats). Used their trade account.
Think it goes back through Capital Seating.
http://www.capitalseating.co.uk/productdetail.asp?pid=207&type=s&appgrpid=16&appid=62&rid=

I paid £1800 on the nose delivered. Retail seats are £630(something) + vat each, £133 for side mounts and £85 for mounts (?)
I paid about £520 per seat plus vat and other bits plus shipping
