reading your comments about the seats and thinking about changing the seats in my S70, what seats do you have fitted to the peril ?
i can fab my own subframes but am ideally looking for something strong comfy and light weight :)

Hi Torch

The seats i have fitted are D2 sport seats which are a jap company for lots of jap cars,i went for these as they are very light (easy to pick up with one hand) and fit me like a glove :0
My mate has them in his Evo 6 which he runs in time attack he gave me a death ride around knockhill last year and i was really impressed :)

Maybe it might create a bit of a stir and they may feature it on the tv program! ;) If not it might take Jeremy back to when he had his 855R :)

In any case it will be interesting to see what lap time you manage to pull off, S60R managed a 1.35 and I should imagine you should be a good 10 ish seconds better :)

If you can figure out an "angle", I can contact the director... he was a business contact in a previous life. (Though you might have to stick an "Alfa" badge on it to get it past Clarkson these days :(
