Umm, I was, a lot :D

But thanks for info. :) I have to figure out what to do, and how I want to do it. My car has basically full track setup, its too stiff. So I quess Ill have to go back, towards stock setup...
Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Good to hear both cars seem to be sorted, for now at least  :13:

Hoping to get my RX-8 back from Aston at Essex Rotary next week after a huge amount of work; bridgeported engine plus loads of other stuff whilst that was being done. Been missing her lots, but have taken KIMI 2 out for a few runs recently on the sunnier days to get my rotary fix  ;D

Full bridgeport  :icon_thumleft:

Aston is hoping to put a few miles on it before I get it back, but I'll still have some running in to complete.

Yep, I'll be at JDM Combe, but currently planning to bring KIMI 2 again, so no track time for me. Having said that, I have been asked to sit in as a passenger to help out some drivers new to the track  :)

Slowed down a little as I cut my finger off with a chop saw...  don't ask...  have been patched back up though and have started making progress again.  A long way behind with everything but hope to have first start in about a month.
