  1. It's very difficult to clean & to remove all the scuffs in the aluminium. I had two large pieces of Armourfend fitted where the heels go. But, I wish I had covered the whole floor pan area though, including the central tunnel cover near the clutch pedal.
  2. I've only been on track 3 times & I've not had any spins in gravel or accidents, but I've noticed that the tops of both of my front wings have multiple hairline cracks which has broken through the paintwork. One side has an area the size of a CD, whilst the other is the size of a 50p piece. It's obvious that it is from bits thrown up from the wheels. Surely we don't have to put up with this? Why didn't they put in front wheel arch liners or protection? It's a track day car & they've put protection in other areas. Has anyone else had this damage...The car has only been driven for 110
  3. Here is a letter taken from the VX220 Forum regarding Track day tyre pressures for R888's... It's very useful! ................................................................................ ................................................................................. ...................................................... My name is Alan Meaker, I am the Motorsport Manager for Toyo Tyres (UK) Ltd. I was at Rockingham on the Saturday 1ST March at the LOT trackday and worked with a couple of cars using our R888 tyre regarding pressures and tread temperatures. What I wou
  4. As I said it was my first time at Oulton Park & only the second time I
  5. Cheers, I have already strengthened it with some Fibreglass applied to the rear head area...
  6. My second proper track day in my 2-11 & first time at Oulton Park on 2nd June was just fabulous. The weather was perfect if a little hot. I also met another 2-11 owner there in their Orange Bobcat. BOT (Back on Track) in Guildford had setup the car for me & re done my Geo. Well, the track is fabulous & utterly engaging. There were around 65 cars on the day, 4 Radicals, an Ultima, GT3 RS
  7. I've just had a pair of CF seats fitted with fixed Aluminium runners & have mounted the seats perfectly where I want them & much, much lower. The runners fitted perfectly into the standard seat anchor locations & it has also saved over 19kgs in weight too!
  8. Scotty...After speaking with Jim @ 2ubular, I understand you had an exhaust system from him? I think... was it getting noisy? He is adding a new internal configuration on the rear silencer with a down turned exhaust tip for me...He's not yet willing to do a re packable rear box!....Maybe another engine swap would be a more logical option in a 2-11...perhaps my Vauxhall engine from my VX220...lol! JonnyW....Your X-bow looks great! It will be interesting to find out your how you find the 2-11 compared to the x-bow... Please post up your thoughts once you've had a good thrash... Max
  9. That's probably true; I have 10 cars at the moment. I don't usually keep my road going main car for more than 7-9 months. But I was hoping to keep my 2-eleven for at least two summers. I've just given the go ahead to get my Orange Vauxhall VX220 (Yes, I know it looks like an old chamfered brick, but, I love it as much as my 2-11, No bull! & it's more of a challenge to drive, more involving & sounds better too...!) It will be upgraded from its current 250hp to around 380+ with a new Harrop S/C and will be stripped to around 730kg. Also, my 2ubular 3" system for my 2-11 is arrives
  10. Well guys, I must be the only person who actually likes the x-bow. I guess it must be the architect in me. Anyway, I did test drive the x-box at Silverstone some time back & would have bought one if prices were the same as a 2-11. For a minimal outlay you can vastly increase the power of the Audi engine & drop & improve the suspension no end. I did buy a 2-11, but the x-bow is a fabulous, but expensive car. It is beautifully built, way better than a 2-11, and to my eye at least is more cutting edge. As for on track abilities, I guess it would be mostly down to the driver...
  11. Yes, It's a full wrap..Gloss black all over, then the green, then 3M to front, air intakes, door tops etc. The original paint scheme is fully protected & the vinyl will remove to hopefully leave a blemish free car again once i've finished with it. I was astonished how much it would cost to repaint just the front clam back to the original paint scheme. This was cheaper & makes it a little more individual.
  12. Ok, it's Finally finished! They couldn't get a good green match for the wheels, so they'll stay black now. Just the seats to be swapped with some CF ones, a new Aero kit & tow eyes.
