Looks good

Thanks for the kind words everyone! It really is !Removed! mint. Always wanted a classic but rot, running costs of a 16+ year old car and worrying about it being stolen has always put me off. But just decided to go for one now, especially after driving a mates and seeing just how much of a different beast these feel to newages. Plus just look at it, !Removed! gorgeous!! Feels like a go kart and so much more nimble even with less power it feels faster.

Not been able to cane it yet though, had some engine work done, exhaust (Blitz, my god it sounds good!), fuel lines etc so needs mapping and keeping it off boost till then. Got a SC36 turbo ready to put on too.

Got big plans for her :).

Is that tomorrow Stants or next month? And too right I couldn't wait, was more for excited about this than holiday, by far!!

Thanks Tidgy, nice little fact sheet there. Will have a better look when I have time :)

I'm noticing that already!! Not even blasting it and the tail end has felt like it's slipping out a bit... I thought it was the tyres in the wet though. Guess not, must be the setup of them?

there 30/70 power split (so very different to any of the others which are 60/40) when the diff is wound all the way back so they are a tad more tail happy. i gave mine the beans coming up a slip road onto the bypass over the weekend and even going in a straight line the back decided it wanted to try to go first hahaha admittedly was damp and greasy. Just take it easy till your used to it.

Thanks for that Tidgy. Learn something new everyday, think I'll be keeping the DCCD more forward for a while at least. Or until i find a open space to have a play and learn it better ;)

o also don't wind it forward too much unless you have too, diff lock is for snow and loose gravel and doesn't like tarmac.

Yea I know about that part, had DCCD in my last widetrack but it wasn't as extreme as this one, feels about right on 3rd one up in wet, 2nd one in dry :).

Thanks Aucky :)
