    Default VXR on track......

    Nice. On Track the added bonus of a LSD will be more apparent, it’s a good ‘Diff.

    Get a Thread up 👍🏻

    Sadly it looks like the Snetterton track day won't go ahead, as the guy organising it has had a serious accident. So we're now booked in for Donington on 25th February. Anyone else up for that? Details here - http://www.javelintrackdays.co.uk/tr...product_id=698

    The 'Burg has had a proper clean up and is now tucked up in the garage for a month or two.

    Believe it or not, I've not actually driven it on the road yet as I've still got the insurance on the old VXR until it goes, so the 'Burg will stay in the garage for a bit longer! A bit frustrating, but at least it won't get covered in winter ****!

    Taxed the 'Burg last week and done a few miles since. Very impressed, particularly with the diff, which works really well with no snatching.

    Change of plan for track-days - keeping the silver VXR, going halves with a mate - keeping the 'Burg as a road car. We're upgrading the VXR a bit, just bought a Nurburgring gearbox. I think that will make a big difference on track. Probably won't have it fitted for the first event at Donington on the 25th, but hope to get it sorted soon after that. Also got some Nankang semi-slicks, but will keep them for later in the year when it's a bit warmer & drier!

    Good news! Booked in with WG to fit the Drexler diff before Donington on the 25th. Also picked up a complete set of Nurburgring suspension this morning which will be fitted too. Really looking forward to the first thrash of the year! What's anyone else got planned for track days?
