Cheers. Rears are standard UT and the fronts are PGT1's all with standard pads. I can't fault them to be honest, she stops fast with good pedal feel. Also has new MC. I had to drop the Brembos due to the 13'' Comps.

I have two other options that I might change to over the winter. One option is to use the brakes off my PGT3 that I have (bigger discs and pots) or a set of Impreza radial mount Brembos that I have been given by a friend.

I've got PGT1 on mine but with uprated disc and pads and I've never had an issue with them.

I did think about drilled/grooved discs and race pads but with hillclimb you don't really need them. Its all about initial bite and soft standard pads are best.

Cheers Rich, yeah they are lovely but they do poke out a little. Mega springs were needed on the front to stop them catching the outer arch. Got mega traction with the 215/50/13 Kumho V70A super softs. Need to accusump it now with the g's its pulling! Smile

Cool, i hope to do some sprints next year,

I did an Autotest in the Uno a few weeks back, real good fun, lots of handbrake turns and drifting about on grass courses! and i met a guy who runs some sprints down this way, who said my Uno would be ideal for them.

I'm guessing you run in a modified class?

I've not actually done any sprints yet just the hillclimbs. I'm hoping to enter the HSA championship this year (funds permitting). I actually enter under roadgoing series production cars class, Its a fairly free class that allows modification. In this class the car has to be road legal and have all trim fitted. Its definitely good fun and quite addictive.

Ok cool, thats what some of the cars on this autotest did, virtually standard road cars used in sprints, my Uno would be in a modified class, but as the engine is under 1.4 engine it helps.

The guy i bought my Mk2 off was going to do the same as you as he bought the door cards, but it had no rear seats! i've got some now as a spare!, but not sure they'd fit now with the roll bar in there!

If you're serious about doing some Sprints/Hillclimb then best you get hold of a MSA year book - you can then tailor your car to suit the class. You will need a Non Race National B licence from the MSA to enter (you will receive a ''Blue Book'' with your licence).

Epynt Hillclimb 14 June 2015.
MY class is Road Going 1400cc to 2000cc.
My best time was 64.99secs, making me the current record holder for this class on this hill, and smashing the old record by 2.5 seconds.
Super happy chappy!

Thanks.

What do you want to know?

Turbo is TT S190 (Punto GT). Straight through exhaust with small backbox. Mk2 management running 6bar fuel pressure and 1.3bar boost. Cosworth front mount. CAD (I think) Carbon air box with cold air feed. Wrapped intake pipes. Oil catch tank. Punto gt flywheel and clutch. Gearbox has LSD, Coupe internals and FD.

Sounds good, When its noise tested how many Db? mine is about 98

Quite a similar set up to mine, I'll be doing the GT management and fitting a reconditioned Mk2 stage 2 standard turbo, its currently got a larger hybrid - Mk1 turbo which is a little laggy for my liking.

Best upgrade i've bought for it is a Innovate SCG1 combined boost controller and Air fuel monitor, easy to adjust loads of parameters , boost curves etc

Db is about the same.

Yeah this turbo is mega laggy! Everything happens 3750-6250rpm. Same here on the Gt management.

Yeah I want some electronic boost control and data logger for mine. Manual boost control just seems a bit archaic.

I tried 2 different manual devices, and the electronic one made a huge difference, i think the boost curve ramps up the pressure nicely, it can even cut boost if leans out etc. Seems to hold boost better too!

I bought an old laptop for £50 with the old serial port thats needed so have been logging stuff, another thing to fiddle with Very Happy

Electronic controllers are quite expensive though...

I couldnt get on with any electronic boost controller I have had in the past, could never get them to work properly, I use a ball and spring valve now,
