I'm going slightly more radical Jarno.
On the look out for a FC turbo as a donor vehicle................if anyone got one fit for only the scrappers but with a V5 or even just a V5 they'd be willing to part with as I've probably got enough parts I could fudge the paperwork then give me a shout...............it's got to be cheap though.
Regards Kevin

Today I thought that I would share a "story" for you, not a picture, if you dont mind  :)

Yesterday I was talking to UK friend in facebook and I started to "teach" him some finnish language and/or mentality in motorsports. Because we are petrolheads, we do have some names/phrases for moments even. Or it could just be that we are weird  ;)

https://www.facebook.com/Bathurst12Hour/videos/2129266007110671/
So, when you are racing and things are getting out of your hands...:

-We have a word for those kinds of situations. Its called jännä kakka hetki. For english it means scary shit moment. Basically it is that moment when you are unable to control things, but you realize that you are in deep shit, and some poo is starting to come out without you unable to control your bowl. For some reason jännä kakka is very common language/vocabulary in our motorsports...

-Other situation usually linked to jännä kakka moment is called hartia lukko. It means shoulder lock. Basically it means that you becoming a passenger in the car that you are driving, just because your skill level ends and your car plunges into forrest doing 170kmh. So hartia lukko is that moment/thing that happens just before jännä kakka, you realize that there is no way to survive that corner, theres nothing you can or could do, car is rapidly going for its destruction

-Then offcourse becomes legendary perä tielle moment. For that we Finns are very proud of... That is more difficult to explain, but it means "rear to the road". When cars were rwd, they needed to get grip so that they could glimb from deeps of the forest. Hope you understand  ;)
So, perä tielle moment is when car is plunging to forest, rolling over, some parts still in the air. Some spectator dude shouts perä tielle, it means that all spectators starts running towards still rolling car. They are running for it to help it to continue racing as soon as possible, even though car might be unable to race, ever again

Hope you enjoy this little lesson  :))

 jännä kakka hetki  ( just for fun I may get this made up as a small sticker for the race car  ;D)

Does this picture qualify  ;)

Yes, exactly. That really is that moment, photographer got it spot on!   :13:
