So about a month ago I saw a company named Prodigy Werks looking for someone to sponsor/test out their new BBK for the MK7 MQB platform. After applying and talking to their rep I sent them my info hoping to get the chance at testing out their new kit. I was lucky enough to be giving the opportunity to do so. Fast forward to today and this showed up. Here are a quick couple pics but I will have a full video and review on these soon.

Everything seems to be very high quality and the packaging alone is fantastic. They included a set of their race pads which I'll put up against my G-loc R16 to compare. They are a true 6 pot caliper that are incredibly light. The rotors are also very light and also a 2 piece with aluminum hats. They also included all brackets and mounting hardware with new stainless steel lines.

I can't wait to get out the the track Saturday and test these out!

Full review to come.

2017-09-25.

Been a while since my last update and it's safe to say alot has happened in between then.

First up. I had my last time attack race last weekend and managed to take 1st place! I didn't even have a good lap and ran 1 second off my PB but it was enough. I'll take it! I won't a new set of tires, some oil, another Pirelli hat and a big trophy! Sweet.

I also finished third overall in the series even after missing a race. Great first season and can't wait for 2018. I decided to move up to street class which allows more aggressive builds and aero. So I'm in talks with APR and having a GT250 rear wing mounted with custom brackets to the chassis over the winter. Along with a front splitter and some fender vents. Let the hate commence..haha


A few pics from last weekend.

Now for some build updates.

The car is in the shop right now having the LSD installed along with poly lower control arm bushings. Should be back in a few days.

The oil pan is going to go on this Thursday. I just got the new gasket and sealant.

APR GT250 rear airfoil /wing is on order. Pic below.

Front splitter being made over the winter. Custom with diffusers and fender vents.

I grabbed a DSG breather box from VW. It is supposed to help catch oil and relieve the DSG of pressure build up instead of having it vent into the atmosphere like it is doing now. Which creates a huge mess.

Out of nowhere I found a good deal on a R400 kit...i just wanted the front bumper since it's lighter and has no for a so I can make brake vents. So I may sell the remainder of the kit but for now I'm just using the front bumper.

I also have a 3 inch aluminum straight pipe being made. Car needs to loose weight.

Everything from the b pillars back is being stripped out as well.

That's going to be taking place over the next 5 or 6 months. Going to be a long winter.
