This track prepared (and more importantly track used) Astra H VXR came in for mapping to give it a performance improvement in the short term to compliment the other modifications which have been specifically aimed at making a good useable trackday car.
Lightweight Team Dynamics 18″ alloy wheels help with unsprung weight and improve acceleration and turn in and also allow the 356mm 8 pot K Sport brake kit to sit neatly behind. DAP springs and a Whiteline rear anti-roll bar are the current chassis upgrades. A full exhaust system has also been fitted to help with improving flow and compliment the ecu remap.
Turning to the interior, a rear half cage has been bolted in to enhance the structural rigidity of the body, which also improves the handling and offer the obvious safety benefits, the interior has been partially stripped to reduce weight, the heavy factory front seats have been replaced with Recaro Pole Positions, a massive weight saving and also allowing the use of front seat harnesses.
