Talking Matt's 'Make it moar better' / 'less sh*t' S1 106 XN Project

So, I had a VTS. It was Blue, it was fun, I put "some bits" on it, I took it apart, put it back together again, and generally had fun in it. Being a last of the line-ish 2003 car, it's obviously completely rotten, so basically, I'm breaking it for any decent parts and scrapping what's left of the comically cheesy shell.

I set out to find ideally, a non-sunroof tidy early 106 shell, as I figured this would be a good base if I wanted to start a proper project. Which brings us to the car. As always, one popped up when I wasn't actually looking, so back in August, I picked this up:





It's a 1994 106 'XN', which appears to be french for "extra poverty specification". The amount of features it doesn't have is frankly staggering. It doesn't even have intermittent wipers, they're either on, or off.

What it does have going for it, is a lack of sunroof, and the correct number of doors. Being devoid of anything even remotely entertaining or useful, it's also supposed to weigh 790kg apparently, which is nice. I'm sure I can add to that. It's also somehow only done 49,000 miles, has all the old MOT's and thus a nice clean shell.

So, I've ran around in it for a couple of months here and there, and yesterday I SORN'ed it to start 'fiddling' over christmas.

The end goal, is going to be a sort of 'fast road' type of affair I guess. I'm wanting a car that I can drive to a track, enjoy on track, and drive home. I really fancy some european tracks and road trips though, so I'll be trying to retain some level of comfort. Having done a good few trips out in MuZiZZle's VTS now, I don't fancy a euro trip in fixed back buckets and no dashboard.

I've been accumulating "stuff", and off the top of my head I've got a handy 16v engine that was fairly well refreshed 5K ago by my fine self, an S2 Rallye Gearbox, a set of Bilstein B8's, a 4-1 manifold, a 2" pugsport, 23mm torsion bars, polybushes, VTS wiring looms, various braces, VTS airbox and all the sets of brakes apart from the ones I think I want now?

I've got a 283mm setup, and Brembo's. I was going to use the Brembo's but I think now I've decided to go with 14" S2 Rallye Steel wheels, which shoots that plan down in flames as they won't go over the brakes. So I'll likely sell them and go for a decent 266mm setup.

So there we go, probably more pics over the next month, picking up over xmas when I have some time off. Progress wise I'm hoping to get the wiring sorted and the engine and box in over xmas, I'd be really happy if it was rolling and running by early January, but we'll see I guess.

I need to make a beam, argh.

Last 2 dull pics for now, squeaky clean boot floor:





Yeahhhh buddy. There's a tiny little hole in one of the front inner wings I've found which I'll attend to over xmas, and I'm toying with the idea of stitch welding the engine bay.

That's enough waffling for now I think, so cheers for reading!

Interesting.

££ for the 266's? Iirc the monaco's are blue so I'll leave those ta, just had a look through your thread and the sebrings have wingback tabs so I wouldn't be able to go on the ring as they've banned them now

What are the Recaro's like, any pics?

I think it's basically not been used tbh dude, it had 49k on it when I got it, and according to the MOT's it had done 10k since the previous MOT, works out about 2,300 miles a year on average before that! Mad.

I should have Rallye steels sorted for it, and it'll be remaining flat arch

Thanks for the comments folks.

Thats a clean solid base!! Should see some solid quick progress with what you have laying around to....

Under 800kg to, could be an impressive track toy!!

Thanks Matt, been keeping an eye on your build on here and PH, nice engine plans

It's under 800kg at the moment, according to the handbook, but by the time I've fitted the heavier VTS engine, and then added bigger wider wheels, larger brakes, front ARB etc, it's all going to mount up so I'll have to look at what I can do with regards to weight reduction to get it back down.

Muz's VTS is around the 820kg mark with fuel in it, and that's very basic inside, so if I can get near 850 as a final figure with some interior, I'll be happy, who knows!

I see anything under 1 ton a bonus, I've gone a bit mad with the bhp per ton lark!!

Hoping to see some 2014 spring/summer track time??

I dunno yet really, definitely summer. The plan is to get over to europe towards the back end of the summer, if I can get a day or so in at Knockhill before then, that would be good.

I think I might keep it SORN'd until I've got it how I want it, I've technically got enough parts as far as I'm aware to get it converted and running over xmas, but I haven't really finalised the spec yet, and I don't "need" it on the road so I think keeping it off will be plan.

Saves it getting filthy off the winter roads anyway!

Started off breaking the VTS this weekend. I didn't get many pictures as I just cracked on with it, and I was using my iPhone for tunes so it was a pain to unplug it lol.

Step 1, grab a handy VTS and assemble required tools, in this case some Fosters, a lumphammer and an axe.



Step 2, hit a bit until things fall off:



Step 3, keep hitting it until the engine has fallen out and put itself neatly against the wall



I also gave the new daily a wash off, regrease and wax since it's being pressed back into daily service. Ah well, it'll work some of the beer off...



Also, I'm on a begging mission.

Does anyone have a buggered loom kicking about, or even part of one. I need this plug for a coil pack, with about 5cm of wire coming out of it. One of mine has pulled out the plug, and I don't really want to change the loom as I'm bollox with electrics, and it's something else to go wrong lol.

So, this is the plug I'm after:





Next job is to start pulling the looms out of the VTS I think, and probably labelling things.
