That just looks like a way of spending a lot of money.

Don't really see how it's a track car?
Just because you're offended doesn't make you right.

Errr, yes.  You have to spend money.  On proper safety, rather than shiny stuff like brakes or carbon tat.

Tracked my Mk7 GTI twice last year first at Blyton park and suffered from brake fade . Second one was at Anglesey but this i upgraded the discs to vagmabremtec J hook vented .And the pads to EBC red stuff and it did make a difference managed to get a few more laps done before I had to in (still on road tyres)

Hope the pic works
