  • Help! I want to buy a VXR 220!

    Hi all,
    I'm new to this board and am in the market for a VXR220. I see there are a few for sale right now.
    Unsurprisingly (seeing as only 65 of them were ever made) there ain't too many people posting on here....but anyone with any experience of them I'd like some help:
    - Do you know if it's possible to fit a larger roll hoop to the VXR? Last time I sat in an Exige, with my helmet on, it was about half way up the roll hoop on the rear - I guess the height of the roll hoop on the VXR is the same...? See here:
    This isn't actually me but is a mate of mine, who is about 3" shorter than me.

    - The AP's which come as standard with the car - I intend to use the car as a track car only - has anyone felt the need tp upgrade the brakes?

          Cant say if you can fit a larger roll bar, but if you want to use the car for some serious track work , then the AP 4 pot upgrades would be a big advantage. For fast road use, standard brakes , even with standard brake pads are fine.
