Did a quick and easy job as well and stuck some proper roll cage padding in ala blue book requirements.

Well done, old old trick that one, shortens up the throw but you will find it a little stiffer to change gear. 
All the best Clive

Had fun at Llandow...  Unusually for me I also had a man with a camera.

Looks great  :)

Did any issues crop up, and how did she feel on track?

I'm sorry to hear that, hope nothing serious and I look forward to getting together later in the year.

As an aside Clive, which EFR turbo model is it you are listing on the RB shop at the moment?  7670 0.92 AR Twin Scroll IWG and Boost Control Solenoid?

And here is a short video of me getting it a little wrong!  I thought if I start with the bad I can build myself back up!  Sorry about the rear view, the front as you can see had misted up!

Nice vid sounds just like mine!  Have not been back to llandow for years...

I cancelled Abingdon as waiting on another op and currently signed off for 2 weeks with kidney infection. gutted.

I've tuned out all the flames on over-run, not so much fun but less fluffy when you get back on the power.  There are some small blue flames between gear changes every now and then and some little flashed on over run (there is a small one in the clip along the straight).  I might actually put a little more fuel in on the over run to help with cooling.

I wish you a speedy recovery!

I think the red on the exhaust is the reflection from the side of the tub rather than heat...  Now you have me looking again, but I would expect the manifold to glow before the can.

Nice little clip, seems to handle and accelerate well, plus it sounds great  :)
