Hi from a Scottish newbie

Post by Neil A » Sat Nov 19, 2016 6:07 pm

Hi
Just signed up on here as im considering buying a S1 exige next year .
Just now I run a modified 996 turbo as a weekend / fun car but after selling my clio track/race car late last year i'm missing a track toy.
Plan is to sell the turbo ,bank some cash and get a Lotus for road/track , so would more than likely go for a audi or honda converted car than something fully original.

My 996
600 bhp , 380mm 6 pots front and rear , Moton coilovers ,rear cage, GT2 bumpers.....

Old track clio

230bhp high comp engine on Jenveys, fg doors,tailgate,bonnet,gripper diff , AST suspension , roll center correction kit....

Welcome!!

Love the 996TT, they really are quite a performance bargain as an all weather supercar. Gotta tick the Pork box one day.

Get yourself a Lotus and join the Scottish lads on their trip down for our annual event and have a change from Knockhill :grin:

Thanks for the welcome :D
The clio was a 3 year gradual build from a almost standard road car to full race spec, it use to hold its own on track against a lot bigger cars.
I recognize a few names on here from my old cosworth owning days.

Yeah a well sorted Clio in the right hands can really hold its own on circuit, great little cars. One of the ex-Exige/Cossies lads (Porkie) has one of the full-fat contemporary Cup cars with the SADEV and that's like a mini touring car :cool:

I know Lee (Porkie) and James that originally bought Sean's Exige , they both moved on from similar cars to my clio to the 197/200 cup cars which look to go very well.

Yeah those guys were away with us in Eastern Europe, James (aka Big Dinner) used it as his Stag! The Clios were going great.
