Hello from Atlanta

Post by BIGSILK » Tue Sep 15, 2020 5:55 pm

Hey there, I've got a 2016 Abarth that I've been driving for about a year. Slowly done a few installs that I thought were needed before warranty was up and the real mods began. So far it's just proclip/schsche phone mount, thinkware U1000 dash cam, and some maybe useless stainless brake lines (stay away from that mod if you're not ready to deal with replacing hard lines that might be damaged)

I work as a racecar tech so I'm excited to slowly turn my abarth into a fun track day toy that I can drive home in.

Welcome to the group!

Yeah the brake lines can be a pain, I hear lots of stories about it being hard to remove from either the hardlines or the calipers. I'd recommend the MPx brake cylinder support as an easy brake modifcation that provides a nice improvement in the pedal feeling.

Hello!

Welcome to the forum!

Need to update my build threads, I was supposed to be turning my Abarth into a once in a while track day car, but had issues with the car, so now have gone too far with the 500T also ...
