Good to see this lockdown is producing some results and anabling you to get both cars in order :sign0098:. Was always a pleasure to see you at track days. Keep up the good work and hopefully you will get some track time toward the end of the year. :icon_thumleft:
Finance dictated it had to go 13 months ago,  after 14 years in an RX8 regretted ever since.

Well with the lock down I've had a bit of time to work on my car's. With my black rx7 up and running waiting for a tune. I've had chance to have a look at my rx7 race car, after a year or so and a lot of hassle with the ECU I finally got it started, so after finishing off a few bits I can get it in for tune, it's been so much grief and hassle I am made up.

 :bravo_2: Good to hear from you, keep in touch  :great:.
All the best Clive

Well my car has come on a bit, it now drives lovely thanks to pip, although I fear he was right and it needs more power, my fault as it only has a mild tune. But I will probably get it booked back in with him when I get it back from the paint shop, I got a delivery from Japan of  new window seals, front and back and doors and new wiper arms this week. So hopefully I'll be able to post up a few shinny photos soon.

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

I know what a wuss I am, but I was thinking that I had the track car for big power, it makes you smile when the boost kicks in but it doesn't make you giggle likes school girl, so needs more :13:
