    Cooling mods done, pic is of the transmission thermostat arrangement. Other than fitting a seat and belt that's about it, do have a big rear brake kit on order so I'm just hoping that the big brakes do not mess up the ABS. Present plan is to run with stability control switched off but apparently that does not delete the function completely.There are several ways to do that but it involves the ABS too so we'll see. Pic is looking down from the top R front side, see radiator.

      Id be surprised if the DSC/ESC doesn’t fully off in a low
      CoG pseudo sports car. It only stays on for roll mitigation on SUVs. Any of the late model sports cars I’ve driven will allow full shutdown and big drifts. And they all have at least 3 levels of it too- key on condition (no yaw), sports mode (a dangerously small amount of yaw), and off (cut sick).

      what’s the theory with changing the rear brakes? What have you changed that changes the F-R weight transfer?

        If replacing the seat with a fixed/raceseat, why not chuck in some eye bolts and strap a harness in? As long as you have the stock belt still in place, you can drive on the road, and then clip the harness in for track sessions....

          Nothing changed as far as weight distribution goes but the front/rear brake ratio has. Anyway I've decided to do what seems best for braking and see what all the dash lights say later.

            Problem is there is nothing obvious behind the seat to hook belts too. Guess I better start pulling plastic to have a look back there.

              Im not too familiar with the structure in an SLK, but would have thought there would be something - but then how accessible it would be to drill holes and mount a backing plate etc could be an issue.....
