I'm probably similar to you Ed (and many others here I expect) whereby I won't give a car too many revs (or too much loud pedal) until components, oil, fluids, etc. are up to operating temperature. It's during that time I tend to just get a feel for how the brakes are performing that day, and...
Ed, sorry to hear about the woes with 407. I've asked Mick to take extra good care! :) He loves a Trophy on display beside his Biffa bin!
As for brakes... I have always used Brembo HC plain discs (track and fast road) and never had an issue. I don't think the Trophy really needs the drilled /...
I had to have secondhand clocks when #165 was being rebuilt due to the originals being discarded! A specialist had to be brought in to ensure they displayed the correct mileage. I think it was around 70 quid or thereabouts from memory.
Haha, thanks Tim! I just wish it were easier / quicker to find and maintain the data and that more 'unknown' Trophys presented themselves.
No problem, you're welcome.
Thanks both for the kind words of encouragement / support! :)
TrophyTracker updated to v1.6.5
This version improves the MOT data presentation (added in v1.6.4) and also adds a standalone MOT Check page. This means that you can directly view a Trophy's MOT data from the search page, or you can use the standalone MOT Check page to pull up information about...
I can't see myself getting a GR Yaris in truth; the FK8 is incredible and offers practicality (something I don't really have with the Trophy and Porsche). My money would be on the Type-R. SMJ will provide a comparison I am sure! I daresay the GR Yaris will absolutely leave the Trophy in its dust...
A friend of mine has got his (in red) but he's working alongside a performance company he knows that are developing performance mods for the car, hence he doesn't get much opportunity to use it! Not that he can at the moment anyway...
The FK8 Civic Type-Rs are incredible. It's an option that my missus and I are looking at when we sell the Abarth in the coming weeks. I think they are one of the best performance cars out at the moment, the only downside being that they are quite large.
I'm still awaiting a test drive, but yet to be convinced. A few people I know (who's views I respect) have driven it and haven't been blown away. I'll reserve judgment until I've had a go myself though. One thing I do know... GR Yaris owners get pi$$y when an Abarth pulls away from them...
TrophyTracker updated to v1.6.3
This version adds extra information (if available) to events on the timeline - namely the vehicle mileage and value. This may be useful, for example, to see how much a car was advertised for at a given time along with the mileage at that time.
TrophyTracker updated to v1.6.2
(If you use the application and notice any issues, have suggestions, questions, etc. then please do let me know).
This version adds a few new search features (search via URL endpoints) and the ability to copy the URL of the currently viewed vehicle to the...
Hey Trophy Community!
I hope you don't mind but I've decided to create a separate post for TrophyTracker related updates and information. The project has reached a fair size now (and represents a significant time investment) hence it helps if I can keep all TrophyTracker related 'stuff' in one...
Welcome to the forum. It is only a very small community and only a few posts get created / updated each day. However, the people here are generally friendly and very helpful! All the best and keep yourself safe, too. :)
No problem mate, cheers! :)
Thanks for your help in trying to get to the bottom of the Timeline display issue. Sadly I had to drop the fancy-looking version as a result but I'd rather it work across more devices than look a bit better on fewer of those devices! Thanks for the kind words, too.
TrophyTracker Updated (v1.6.1)
Renamed the 'Find' page to 'Search'.
Renamed the 'Metrics' page to 'Stats'.
Removed MOT information from Timeline data (no longer needed following the introduction of the MOT History section).
Refactored the Timeline section on the Search page as it sadly had...
Ah, go on then - put me down for a carbon one please. Might as well replace the 'aged' carbon item with a new one for her homecoming!

TrophyTracker has a New Feature (v1.6.0)
Good news. I think. I've finally been approved and accepted by the DVSA as a registered developer. What does that mean? It means I have access to their live online MOT Trade History database. As a result of this I made a few changes to the Tracker and...
