      Really enjoying watching the development of some of the cars here, very motivating!

      I haven't done anything with the Vento as I'm still mulling over various options. This thing about going to...

      Yes agree re 1.8Ts for trackdays as they're cheap, light and can produce good power reliably.

      Re chassis I would class a B5 A4 slightly separately to the Haldex based cars. However one of the key...

      Well that didn't quite go to plan. After 5 or so years and 20+ track days, some drag days and heaps of road miles the car finally had an issue that caused me to not complete the full event. Basically...

      ^ This has me super excited! I'm back to our local track this week (02/04) for an evening session so will drop the sway bar link and see how it goes on the dirty old Mk3. :P

      OK, apologies - I misread it and thought it was after the oil change. So the code doesn't clear even after you clear it from the Engine Control module in VCDS? It might be the adjuster that is faulty...

      I had a similar issue with the camshaft over-retarded after an oil change on my 07 Polo GTI (BJX engine). I found the code could not be cleared when it came up within the Auto Scan function in VCDS,...

      Thanks guys, good info.

      I will look at moving my EGT probe to the collector pre turbo. Sounds like the excuse I need t change to a low mount manifold rather than the high mount currently on there....

      Another question if I may - what sort of oil temps and EGTs are acceptable and/or ideal?

      I'm typically at ~230F (110C) oil temp creeping to ~240F (115C) if the day is hot (ambient air temp over...

      Yes I'm running an OEM VR6 front swaybar. Thanks for the advice, I'll try with the front swaybar detached next time and see how that feels.

      My static camber is just under 3 degrees which from...

      I got along to a couple o track days in Feb including last Sunday. The Mk4 R32 brakes and Hawk 9012s have sorted out most of the braking issues and I can now do a full session with no fading, though...
    11. Is there a risk with that kind of setup someone...

      Is there a risk with that kind of setup someone gives it a good yank at some stage and it pulls the frame rails together?
    12. I realise this is primarily an engine forum so...

      I realise this is primarily an engine forum so hope this is OK - I'm looking for some pictures and descriptions of brake ducting setups, ideally for Mk3 Golf/Jetta platform, but anything would be...

      Absolutely. Especially for people in small countries like where I'm from where you can probably count the number of regular VW track cars on the fingers of one hand.

      Also thought adding wheel/tyre...
