Arnold, only if you can get the power down ;)
Well, this has the makings of a good national meet next year!

I'm quite confident i'l be able to get the power on the road. Little bandit had the same problem and still managed 11/12 second quarters!

I'll have less power, and more weight - so hopefully that'll help things :) The weight of the engine pushing the tyres down into the road?

I know Speedle is tempted to push his car further if it wasn't for potential gearbox / clutch problems!

apprently as mentioned in another thread today the k11 early 1.0 gearbox may fit the k10 if it does more power will not be a problem :)

had the hover conversion done today :p



seriously though just had 4 new Falken fk512's fitted its amazing the difference new tyres makes feels like it has power sterring now, and grip which now means its quicker if only by a small margin :p

i like em black mate personally i think having them white is ott. keeps it more 80's retro i reckon :)

How's it chavvy? It just looks cleaner than having oil and grease like mine lol. Should you become a chav/pikey in the near future i'll stop talking to you altogether =)

And why can't i call you a boob? Boobs are great, which if anything means i just complimented you =)

And yep, i'm a kid and i love it. nothing wrong with it. My dads 61 and no better than me so it seems to run in the family =)

Nothing wrong with painting calipers, if they're decent! Painting rear drums bright red is a bit sad, but black always looks good.

so you may recall i mentioned i sheard a bolt in the head when fitting the 4-2-1, anyway i decided to get it sorted for piece of mine (even though it wasnt leaking) so new stud fitted now new exhaust manifold gasket (didnt have a new one at the time so reused the old one before)

spot the sheard bolt;


anyway all fixed and sorted properly now :) plus i wrapped the 4-2-1 in silver heat wrap which looks much better and also means the car permorms that little bit better :)

Yours isn't stainless though is it? I've heard wrapping the exhaust like that will corrode it quicker.
