    Icon3 206 GTI 180 Track Specs

    so being young i have a lot of energy and im feeling that i want to release some energy on the track and off the streets. So i thought i would attempt to pioneer a thread dedicated to 206 gti's and gti 180's in terms of tyre pressure, brakes, tyres, wheel sizes, gear changes, esp and asr, air intake, exhausts etc. i want to avoid things such as turbo's and other major engine work, keeping it more practical to the daily driver who enjoys a petrol fueled thrill on the occasional weekend. hopefully through the exchanged knowledge drivers can learn and adapt to maximize smiles on the track, and possible track days can be organised to put various theories up against each other head to head.

    my 2004 206 gti 180 at present

    85000km on the clock

    wheels: standard 17inch

    tyres: falkens 205/40/r17

    tyres pressure: 32psi

    brakes: unknown

    discs: factory

    air intake: factory considering K&N filter

    exhaust: factory

    esp and asr: prefer off unless in the wet, noticeably easier gear changes when off as well as quicker
    take off.

    gear changes: take off at 3000rpm then all at approximately 7000rpm

    Do you have one of these on the driver's door (it's entirely possible you don't):

    Okay,

    Where do we start.

    1) Make sure all fluids are to level.

    2) Do a few driving courses such as Ian luff's stage 1, 2 and 3. On course 3 you hit the track and you get answers for most of the things you are asking like tyre pressures, gear changing and wether your brake setup is sufficent. The driving courses will teach you heaps about driving technique, lines etc. Far more benefit/satisfaction will be attained going to a few training courses before you hit the track on your own.

    You will then learn what mods will bring most benefits too.

    Cheers

    The pioneers have been and gone a long time ago -- these days they're distinguishable from the tourists by the arrows in their backs. They left behind something like what you describe that's been around for as long as the 206 has, namely http://206gti.net

    Dormant these days, but still (justifiably, IMHO) an internationally recognized source of collected wisdom on the machine.

    gear changes: take off at 3000rpm then all at approximately 7000rpm
    ... and I think I'm beginning to see how my clutch came to last more than 200,000 km ...

    Haha, yeah I almost spat out a mouthful of coffee in relation to that "all at approximately 7000rpm" comment.
