Its got FK Konigsport coilovers and no not at all. It could maybe do with a little bit of stiffening on the front end but with track rubber on the grip is immense so I had no problems chucking it in the corners. It was really good on track, massive difference compared to my last car with no frame.

I might drive this one for more than a lap before giving you the keys back then  ;)

Looks sweet on track- deffo getting mine ready for a few months time and some Blyton/Donnington action, CG40 trackday?

Engine is stock
Ported GT inlet
51mm throttle (although need to sort out the top elbow as that is stock at the moment)
Turbo with front mount
Helix friction plate with lightened flywheel

I've wound the boost up to just under 20psi at the moment and its pretty quick at that. I need to sort the cam timing out on the vernier properly but its running pretty nicely at the moment. I'm not sure I'll bother going for a BVH or anything if I'm honest unless I run into problems with this engine, its plenty quick enough for now.

Yoof - yeah its a different animal to what you drove last year! CG40 trackday at Donnington would be awesome. I'm game.

I'll put this in here. I was looking at the vids from September to spur me on to sort the car out for this year. Looking forward to getting back out on track again.

Gearbox has been changed today, and the old one looks pretty fooked. Two holes in it, I've not had chance to open if up yet, I can't see anything being salvageable though.

Hellfire that's impressive! Was that just being used as a daily? Or hard driving?

That was on track so driving fairly hard.  ;) It had been hard to get into gear sometimes but otherwise ok. Quaife has gone in now though so all is good.
