    Default Corsa Vxr Arctic #400

    Well today myself and craig (limevxr)i went and picked up the new motor. Left scotland about 3am and arrived about 7 eegerly awaiting its arrival. Had butterflys from moment i work up to weather i was makeing the rite desision or not. Some may see this as a downgrade from my astra vxr nurburgring but i cetrainly dont. Its a corsa vxr arctic edition number 400. Iv had a corsa before and have wanted one again for ages so decided to go on hint and cane across it. So after about a few hours of barter i came to a deal. So a date was set to pick up car... today obvcourse so i starterd ordering a few bits and bobs for it last week nothing major just arp head bolts and athena thermal head gasket and a set of dap r lowering springs. With possibly blistine shocks

    The 1 things its missing i will be adding are AFL's as they really set it off. Well enough with the boreing stuff heres the good bit

    Brakes are next looking at ksport 330mm or veccy vxr as im down sizeing wheels to 17" thinking about gloss black gsi snowflakes. Not to everybodys taste i now.

    Was at rnd motorsport today literly 30 minuites after picking it up and was talking to dan about droping to a .64 houseing along with meth , adding a screamer pipe and a map from him. All after christmas is out the road

    The car is a pleasure to drive and a real animal. And i'm pleased to say i dont regret letting the burg go. Not got many pics as now but will be plenty come my next day off work









    My end game for the car isnt to achive big power its all about no lag! So im not fussed in anywae about the numbers. Its also a weekend car that the kids wont get to destroy so it wont be caged or anything like that. Thanks for reading hopefull lots off updates next week

    Great pocket rocket. Mine will be the same specs, but high comp pistons with .57 housing and screamer pipe. I hope that I will reach the same power. Lovely car.
    I thinking about water meth too.
