    Default Krzys' 2002 Nighthawk Black Track EP3 Type R - Dave

    Right, so a couple of months ago I was getting moaned at for tracking Bob and people were worried about me wrecking or crashing the car.


    So my brother and I bought another EP3 to use purely as a track slut.


    Pictures from the sale advert:















    This was an M2 unsilenced cat-back, this came straight off before we even fetched the car! Far too loud and no good for noise restrictions!












    The day we picked it up.






    First comedy fault, not worth dealing with!



    Show plate for on the track!



    So we got the car back to my brothers house where it has sat for a couple of months doing sod all. Until last weekend when we got all the servicing items together plus a sump baffle to drop in to get the car ready for it's first track day, which is in December!





    Fluids, filters, sump baffle, plugs etc etc



    Bob was supervising.






    Bob's old airbox and S2000 filter.



    Not bad for 137k, chain is tight, cams look decent!



    These looked original!



    So did the fuel filter, not good!



    Back together and all is well!



    What we did find was that we need new front brakes before the session rather than after, so I'm hopefully ordering a big brake kit today, we have fluid ready to change and braided lines on the way too! Radiator looks like it's ready for the scrap too so going to get one ordered ready!


    Track day is on Sunday December 13th at Donington Park should anyone fancy watching us kill or bin the car!

    Nice work!

    Are you going to do the opposite of you're other ep3 then and strip the sound deadening and interior out?

    Stoptech kit is fitted! Along with a brand new set of Uniroyal tyres, which are proving to be really good this time of year! Bedded the brakes in using the method that Stoptech recommends and my god they are bloody good! Made me feel sick by the end of it




























































    There's a couple more jobs to do before the first track day but the big jobs are now done!

    Small update, dry tyres are sorted and a set of wheels painted so they look a bit less **** lol! Also some stickers have gone on!

    First track day in this on Sunday at Donington Park, should be good fun!
