Alloy plate made and stuck onto my nearside rear quarter Lexan window at the point I fill up ....any spills with VMAX petrol tend to melt the Lexan and mark it ....learned this from the race cars I helped out the last couple of years LOL

I needed to push it today to find out any issues...Prescott hill climb will be brutal on it ......so once I bedded the brakes in ..:and had Brakes lol it was let’s see what’s what ...I had a few times I couldn’t engage 5th which was Satchel shift adjustment ,...so just a few small things to iron out Thank god LOL

Why NOT ?
It’s was coming along well ????

Mine now is better at speed Pete ...horrible slow LOL

I’ll probably do Pugfest and then think about a few independent days depending on how it handles ?
It’s really set up for Tracks now and not just Combe LOL

I have a few things to Tweek and change and that’s me happy until my Sequencial in 2-3 years which WILL happen Thumbs up

Thank you Steve Thumbs up

Yes totally agree ....Monday was a shake down and I did abuse it badly ....even doing 1/2/3 wheel spin silly starts to test the drive shafts Thumbs up
I was over the moon ....with how it went ...just need two new inner CVs SKF I’ve ordered....

I did the silly thing of not checking my tyre temps before first going out ...Totally Stupid !!!!

I need my front black art design front dampers revalved and Tender springs rather than progressive lower springs with higher poundage Ibachs with have been ordered Thumbs up

I need to make a cork like plug for my Brake ducts as it’s cooling them to much and as it was a cold day I couldn’t bed them in 100% and no servo now meant no brakes really as the 360mm rotors cool enough LOL

I’m really over the moon and the car was so planted at high speed ...

Mike Bland came along and I’m sure he will tell you how pleased I was Thumbs up

I will buy two new go pros ...one for the front and one for the rear or better still a 360 one Crazy

Can’t you hurry up the sequential as I’m thinking of going to 6 speed lol.

You where certainly a happy boy like a kid at Christmas but well deserved. Again like you’ve said to me a few times it’s just good to see the car out there being used for what it was built for

I've been thinking about this a bit recently. Have you thought about mounting a cable operated butterfly (like a throttle body) in your ducting route, that way you can tweak the butterfly opening on the fly if you decide the brakes arent getting enough cool air or are getting too much?
It's something i might consider when i start work on goldie2.0 Laugh
