Hmm I had breakfast there while mine was being done too!!
 
Car looks awesome, I\'d thought about this before and wondered if anyone would have done it. Hopefully will see it at rotorstock next year ;)

Just a little update.
After running a 13.4 at the jap finals and fighting with a miss fire all day we took it home and drew up a list of "to do" jobs.
I got an invite by another of my sponsors to go to shakespeare on 31st of october for a photoshoot and obviosly the obligatory thrash down the strip.
At this stage I said yes but also said I wouldnt be there until after lunch as even though its a bit of a detour for me I got the car booked in for a roller session at WGT. After setting off from castle kiwimazda at 5am I made good time and and we had the car set up and ready to go for 9am. After trying lots of differing combos on jets,timing fuel pressure etc etc we had 140bhp at the wheels. I was hoping for more than this but we are now working on it to get it sorted out and where it should be. But the decission was taken to miss giving it a thrash and also the photo shoot was now missed also. Thats very dissapointing. So I set off home for another 4hr drive.
many things were learnt the most important being
Take some one(preferably good looking lady friend(if you dont have one borrow one) for the journey to keep you company
Remember to stop at the services for a pee when you need it and not think that you can make it to the next one. It does not matter if you do not like the slip road going in, just go and have a pee or you will get soaked standing in the pouring rain between the tow car and trailer trying not to loose you dignity.
Eat food. I finally ate on the way home at about 4.30pm. when I was finished so were burger king for the day.
After the trailer was taken back to its home and I got back in doors I tried to drink a whiskey at home about 8pm but nodded off and made my trousers look like I had missed the services on the motorway. What a waste of whiskey

I showed a pistonheaded friend of mine these pictures, his reply was "oh great, a coffin shaped car with the cremating bit in the middle!"

I\'d love a go in that though :D

It will be a lot of fun. I am going to use it for sprints and the odd hillclimb.
I finished 1st in class and 3 o/all in the ACSMC sprint championship with my old FB circuit car in 2006. So once I get to grips with this hope fully ANOTHER championship will come our way

I had a rare moment of enthusiasim today and have been pottering on a couple of little projects.
I started to replace the short inlet manifold on the race car with a longer one, picked up a 12a motor from Mad Kiwi who I must say thanks for the bodacious skids in my old 323. There were nearly skids in my shorts after the car tryed to go through the wall of the warehouse next door.
And puchased 2 series 1 shape rxs. More than likely one for spares and one is a real gem by the looks and this will be a keeper I think.
Then it was situ back to normall and I couldnt be arsed again.
Some of you know things are not quite right at the mo and I am off to the quack tomorrow to see if I can get something sorted. I am sick of iboprofeen. LOL cant even spell it

Let me know what sprints you will be going to, maybe we can compare notes (although an RX8 build hasn\'t got alot in common). I haven\'t started building yet, still planning, info is a www.elworth.info
 
I expect to be at a few ACSMC sprints, Goodwood is always a blast, sadly Longcross is off the schedule for 2010, I\'m told Abingdon is a great event, Eelmoor is just a riot watching the 4WD offroad boys.
