I did 160mph on the track the other day and that was the speed shown on my GPS, my speedo read nearly 175mph! The Car was still going too!! :D At a guess I would imagine top speed would be nearly 170mph if I had really pushed it further?

Cheers for the reply's.

Your defecting back Stormy, good choice with the spec. C, just make sure you get down to Power Station to sort out the bump steer etc!

Your right, it was quite weird maxing out!

Cheers Moses, it is defo. the best 8.........after I've spent 1000's to upgrade the engine, brakes, suspension and interior :D :D

First timed lap was 53 sec, best was 49 sec! Tyres were a bit scrubbed at the end to say the least!!

The MR RS like mine doesn't come with the Bilstein MR suspension, I have fitted some eibach progressive springs to the standard shocks and am more than happy with the results. I have heard that the AST suspension doesn't work very well with the 05 scoobys including the type 25, although it works very well with the 03/04 models.......just something I've heard.

Power Station might not admit to these alledged problems, have a look on Scooby Net.

Let me know about Brunters later in the year.

No, the RA went end of last year! I am running the EVO, a Noble GTO3, a M3 convertible(SMG) and the 20V quattro at the moment.

The M3 is my latest addition, a 99 SMG individual which is a real cracker and great when the suns shining :D :D :D


I am a lucky boy!!!!

Hi mate.. The Bilstein setup was only an option on the RS version. :p

I was considering the Eibach setup too. Fairly cheap and the results have been good on other Evo's. :)
