Roland Rat's 2nd supercharged China GTI-6
#61
So as my China needed a few little this I did the only wise thing and bought another car! Hopefully my man maths will work out on this decision lol

Car in question is Jamie_uk2000's old car (306gti6.com member) which I know quiet well as i sold Jamie the car 8 years ago after putting a low mileage xsara engine into it and then selling him some of the modifications. Jamie had converted the car into a track day car but had lost the bug and it sat for 18 months outside his house.Sadly he lost the love and we agreed a price for me to have it once again.

The car has many goodies such as Ash's 330mm 406 V6 Brembo set up,Full Jetex exhaust system,Rich W roller bearing bottom arms and a Jord rebuilt beam with 21mm torsion bars.

Sadly the old girl is past saving so i'll be taking the bits i want and selling the rest hopefully to cover the purchase cost if my man maths works out right :thumbsup

Here's a few pics of all the goodies I had

Most of the bits are up for grabs bar the rear beam and bottom arms as I want them for my own car.

Wheels.on the car are the 15 inch cyclones.to fit the brakes you need at least 16 inch alloys and if not 17's for the 330mm set up!

My 310s with RS calipers and brembo discs and pads are mental really. Ive never really pushed them hard on a track day for example so dont know how they would fare after half hour of constant abuse but christ do you end up stuck to the windscreen. As fooby found out when he didnt realise how quickly he was approaching a stationary car when i was trying to convince him to boost his 6 lol

I haven't had the chance to fit all the goodies taken off the Diablo yet (rose jointed gear linkages/rebuilt rear beam with 21mm tb's/roller bearing bottom arms/Jetex system/lower strut brace) due to weather so it turned my attention to the inside and bought these beauties

Niall has managed to fit these to his own GTI6 so I'm planning on doing the same but unlike Niall's mine are full leather and have power motors fitted that I need to figure out how to power,doh!!!

You will need to sack off the seat belt plugs and use the 306 pre tensioner which also will need a bolt spacer making up Wink

So it's HAPPY CAR DAY!!! Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

As it's the first day i've been back in the China i've noticed a few things that I forgotten about 6 ownership.
The main one being the fact that the clutches can get so heavy over time on them so a quick pop on GSF's website and this was bought

Also bought a new cable a few weeks back and will get new gearbox bushes from Pug to make sure it's nice and light!



Also just a small update from today.I can't stand the orange bulbs in the side repeaters so bought some silvertec bulbs for them to clear them up.

Hello Roley.

Why do you need motors to adjust your seats?

Have you broken your arms? Smile

So like the massive ball bag ive been toying with the idea of selling/breaking the car as I do like to chop and change quite often.

Got to the point where I had a buyer for it but I've had a change of heart and the China s**tbox is staying!

This arrived at work friday which has got me very excited

Yesterday started with a 5am wake up call to meet Chris Joy aka darkgti6.

Sadly just after Christmas Chris' car was involved in an accident and was written off. His loss was my gain as I managed to buy loads of goodies for the China at a great price.

No its just the small matter of fitting them all Big Grin

Really? I knew the engine was taken out and fitted to a 205 but I thought the shell was scrapped?
