VEHICLE STORY

When I was searching around for my first car, I didn't know 6 cylinder GTI existed, much less know what it sounded like uncorked. After driving around for a year my dad successfully convinced me to go to a track day in which I learned first hand that front wheel drive car can perform really well on a racetrack. Since then I have been modifying the car to make it more reliable at the limit with lots of brake modification and dialing out the understeer. Currently dropping 4 seconds from my lap time every time I visit my local track. 1:47 Shenandoah circuit on PSS tires.
