Seat Cupra Type R

Brief explanation about what this car is to you. Will do the first 3 videos.

New roll cage

After discovering that my previous rollcage was unsafe over a year ago, I knew I had to take it somewhere reputable to get a new one put it. I got put on to Jamie at Must Weld Motorsport by a load of guys on some track pages and gave him a ring to book in the Cupra for a new cage. We decided to throw some extras on there and change the cage up a little from last time, besides actually being welded properly. Anyway, stoked the car is home and safe now, and I'm super happy with how the cage came out and how well it's been done.

Front mount intercooler

After driving the Cupra R for a while at 260bhp, I decided I wanted more power. Among a few things needed to map it and cope with higher power, a bigger front mount intercooler is needed, so I crack on and get one fitted.


Adding some serious breaks

After experiencing some brake fade on the current brembo disc setup last time I did a track day with my Cupra R, I spoke to my friends at Tarox and we sorted out a much better braking package.With F2000 discs and Corsa pads, tarox race fluid and braided lines, the brakes are going to stay a lot cooler during track/spirited driving.
