Youll be fine mate, triple check everything and get that tune spot on...

Dammit Jamie

I reckon we can spot apexes flying out at light speed

Well, I have good confidense to my tuners. It will be fine I quess. Everything can happen tho...

Thats why desided to choose Adaptronic, I can use lots of features to keep engine relativly safe

Glad you have a sense of humour Jarno.....

I dont think anyone can question the masculinity of a Viking God! pink clutch or not

Some Viking Gods are female if not very feminine, don't know of one that likes either pink or lilac though. :dontknow: :))
Finance dictated it had to go 13 months ago,  after 14 years in an RX8 regretted ever since.

So...... had another hissy fit Saturday

Had some advice from Jon to have a break, ignored him (Sorry Jon), and cracked on and the second rear wing come out better than the first side.

The arches on the back have been bugging me for a while in terms of what car they remind me of.

I know theyre a one-off secret b***ard love child of an Elan but they def remind me of another car.........then it dawned on me.....

Can ya guess what it is?
