    My S40 T4 Track car

    Hello,ive just joined and thought i would put a project thread up about my latest car.Its a T4 that has been stripped out bar dash and front seats as a track car.Its got Gaz coilovers,17 inch OZ VIPS refurbed in anthracite,side exit exhaust,Kalmar union Dump valve,Rear strut Brace,has also been on a weight saving diet,having had all the front bumper gutted,and every non essential bit of weight shaved.My further plans are to fit the Bucket seats and harnesses im collecting tomorrow,having a rollcage fitted tomorrow,and then getting more power!The pic is of me at Bedford autodrome on Friday on my first track session in it

    Yes we have some track passes left. (Like gold dust apparently and very much in high demand............but there are enough non Volvos running so sod them).

    If you can come see us at the stand early morning ish we can supply you one at 30. Unfortunately we can't have your car on the stand, which looking at the picture is a real shame :-(
