Hi there guys thought i would start my project thread, first of all names Richard (Obviously :p) but i just get called Dick suit yourself i'm nae bothered.

I got my car about a month ago unfortunately i was still waiting for DVLA to pull there finger out and finish registering her. Finally on the 2nd of this month i got it through so i ordered plates to be made & got them on the 3rd, so after work as excited as i was rushed over to get them on and take her out for a blast. So i drove her on the night of the 3rd, 4th, 5th & then on the 6th took her to Knockhill race circuit :D What a time i had ! First time ever on the track very impressed with the performance & handling, i was expecting her to be more tail happy but no stuck to the track very well. After the track day i had a huge smile on my face and came to the conclusion i am more than happy with my purchase.

I am planning to do a few things, still early days though. I will be doing alot of things that will help me on the track and also things to tweek the car to make it look how i want even if it isn't very practical for the track.

Things to sort (HOPEFULLY) before next track day.

-brake ducting
-track pads (carbotech xp10's on order)
-torque splitter (on order)
-wheels re-furbed & powder coated (color unsure)
-rear windows tinted

Will do, i have had them recommended by a few of my mates that use them on there evo's for track, need all the stopping power i can get out of the small brembos hence trying to get brake ducting sorted as well.

Yeah man I love the regamasters, I wasn't too sure to begin with but now i love them but not the colour :( they get to dirty to quickly especially on the track with all the brake dust. Not sure what colour to go with yet prop end of black, also depending on how much track days I manage I might need to sell them and up to 18" to use bigger brakes but that won't be for a long time so for now I'll enjoy them :D

Richy mate, i saw your gtr at Japfest and didnt even realise it was you lol.
Aaaa Will so you where the other R32 there, I didn't think it was you cause I thought you were still running the stock wheels but just checked your thread to see you have changed them, looks great though ! very clean unlike mine on the day unfortunately didn't have time to clean the car before I took her down to Knockhill as you saw she was very dirty, shameful really :/ haha !

Quick update i have these to fit hopefully over the weekend & before my next track day at Knockhill on the 25th :D Oh & Will the leather interior is really flakey unfortunately. Will get 2 new bucket seats for the front and the rest of the unwanted interior taken out.

Torque splitter


Something to get started on brake ducting


Track brake pads (CARBOTEC XP10's)


& just the one spacer to see how it fits before buying the other 3, looks like a good thickness wall thickness between the O.D & hole just what im after

I can't make my mind up to keep the stickers on or not, don't see them lasting anyways. can't wait to get them on the car see how they look though.
