We have this car as a competition car for simpler competitions on the track, we are 3 work colleagues who drive this project car and compete.

The car works great on the track but lacks a little engine power so we are thinking about how we can increase the power.

The car hangs on stronger cars in the more curvy sections, but on straight ones we lose the upper hand and have difficulty overtaking others.

The biggest difference we made on the car was to lower it and mount it on R-tires, after that the car became much more fun to drive and
together with the EBC brakes you can handle heavy braking without problems.

The competition we run is an endurance race of 3 hours and during those hours you should run as many laps as possible. We are very impressed
with the QG18DE engine, which stands the test of time for the 3-hour constant full-throttle race at high load every race, and has not yet shown
the slightest hint that it is giving up, despite over 220,000km ...

Will sail around here on the forum and read threads and certainly bring life to many old threads but you have to live with that :) will probably start
some of your own as well but as I read somewhere it seems that the liveliness here on the forum has decreased, maybe due lack of interest in this
car model in the current situation and that facebook has taken over more and more, but I am more "old school" and like the forum model.
