Be great to see you there, but have faith young man :victory:, I'm sure it will be fine. I'm more worried about setting the brakes up.

At Brands in December messing around with the ABS fuse cost me a pair of tyres I bought quite recently that cost me getting on for £600!
This was after finding that if you pull the ABS fuse the rear brakes don't work,  125-130 into Padock I had only front brakes and flat spotted the front Yokohama's so bad they are now just bin fodder!

Excellent news, I need a good timing man to see if the changes have worked  ;)

Timing, who said timing, I will now go and write 100 lines of /

Track days do not allow timing

Sorry bored already ;D

No worry's  Jon,
If you would be kind enough to pop them in a box and give us the dimensions then let us know the day before you will be there for UPS to collect that would be great.

Weathers  slowed things up at this end, sorted out the engine bay but haven't been able to get the car out to get it over to my mates workshop to get the brakes etc sorted. Should  still  have time to get every thing sorted though before the 15th .     
All the best Clive

Will do mate. Yes I'm supposed to be doing the 7 but ain't worth the risk moving it to garage on the semi slicks...
Have you been running it all Good?

Cool, you remembered to check the IC piping I removed? Put it on your way? I'll be happy when you've done a track day.
