I weighed mine at 1860kg. That was with 1/3 tank, no sunroof, full interior, no spare tyre, but with lighter weight wheels. The total weight of the wheels I have now is 27.4kg lighter than OEM. So the weight should've read approximately 1887kg.
My seats (non-dynamic, non-vented/cooled) weighed...
Still out here. First time back since October. Still haven't cracked 10s yet, but getting closer.
11.1s at 127.3mph
Ambient Temp 19°C
DA was +600ft
Starting IAT 8°C
Finishing IAT 52°C
Very busy at the track, only managed 2 runs and struggling to launch on this track so early in the...
Thanks Alex. I ran it October last year. Was a little frustrating because I hit the rev limiter on the 2-3 shift.
I'd also gone another day with many kilos taken out, nice cold temps and strong tailwind at Santa Pod (which is quite rare), but it rained out. But hoping to go this Saturday if...
Sorry, I've barely been on here recently.
The work done to modify your headers looks little better than mine.

Good luck with the fuel filter. Not really a serviceable item in these cars. Officially, you need to buy an entire sending unit which is over £400, and a bit of a pain in the ass to change. You can just change the filter alone (which is very cheap), but you'll need to open the sending unit which...
To also add, not only did he track race this car, it was also twin charged. As in he turbo charged and supercharged this engine. The amount of stress he put through his engine is unlike anything any other M113K engine will have experienced.
Very disappointed this weekend.
Went to Santa Pod for the final track day of the year, and was rained out. Mostly disappointed as when it wasn't raining, the conditions were utterly perfect for a record setting run.
It was very sunny (when it wasn't raining) and heating the track surface for...
ESP in my E55 is pretty good at stopping this to be honest. I've only really had 1 or 2 moments like this, and I drive almost year round with semi-slick R888R's or Nankang AR1s, even in December/Jan.
But ESP kicked and saved it long before I even got sideways.
