    bit of a update

    as you can see in the last photos , I had the RS bonnet vents , they did not do to well , melted with in weeks of fitting , made some more vents myself and fitted , so far they are fine ,

    [​IMG]


    then I fitted the Maxton front splitter , not the best fit on the VXR , but will do for now


    then I enter the show and shine at PVS , did not get anything but was worth a go


    [​IMG]


    then I manger to get my hand on some very rare parts from a well know VXD ,

    rear diffuser and mirrors

    this year I got a place in the VXR Thunder road advent , its held at a airfield and you get 5 run from a standing start to 1 mile , to see what speed you can get up to in that distance , I managed 148.02 MPH

    Well just a small up date , I went back to the Nurburgring at the beginning of the month ,
    Got on track , but as you will see from the video the weather was not very good , lot of water on the track and then a lot of mist on the second part of the track , but I got pass some cars and had a lot of fun on the track
