    Looking good.

    I was looking at paddle shift stuff myself this week. I’m on a Life ECU, which you can run as a GCU. The kit Life do is supposed to be excellent.

    ?3200 + VAT, which probably isn’t too bad. I’ve not got as far as looking beyond that (Geartronics etc), as ?3.20 + VAT would be too much right now.

    Yeah I'll be honest, I can't see me ever going for paddles, I love the lever!!

    But the geartronics unit comes in at ?3,200.

    That's a pneumatic system which would need a compressor in the car, and then all the other mounting issues, paddles, actuators, it's a lot of work.

    Engine loom complete









    Onto the home straight now, although there's still a fair lump to do, bulkhead to ECU, wire the ADU and PMU. It's all contained inside the car and James is confident of completion for collection 20/8.

    Which gives me the weekend to fit the new windows, re-fit the brake ducts and some other bits and bobs before Brands on the 23rd.

    I've also got to learn how all the data logging works and is exported to file so I can overlay it on some videos!! Aswell as what the hell all the keypad buttons do.
