I can’t remember the last time I had a full night’s sleep.
I’m going to start this brief post with an apology; this isn’t the in-depth Project GTI update that you might have been expecting. It is however, a precursor for what’s to come.
Over the last few weeks, we’ve been quietly working away behind the scenes figuring out what direction to take this project in next. As it sits, it’s already a fully sorted car. Everything has been addressed: suspension, brakes and a little bit more power. All have been done without compromising the car as my daily driver; it still remains my one car to do all things. It’s the one objective that has been in place since the beginning, and the one thing that I prioritise above all else.
It was decided though, that there was still room for improvement. The plan? More grip, traction and power.
The next stage actually started two weeks ago at Flipsideauto, before I drove straight through the night to make it to Regal Autosport in southern England this morning for further mechanical enhancement ahead of this weekend’s Players Show in Essex. This afternoon the car was raised high in the air so Regal’s mechanics could start work on a particularly complicated upgrade to the DSG-equipped GTI. It’s a very involving job, but they’ve been making it look a bit too easy.
There is an in-depth story coming soon, but there’s some Speedhunting to be done first…
