Yeah, I’ve seen all the pics of the engine carnage. All looking good now and he’s now just “finessing” the fuel and ignition maps. Think he’s just ordered a taller gearbox too?

Amazing build, just read the whole thread and took lots of ideas and inspiration for my 205.

Superb update OP - this is just perfect. I think i remember reading about why you swept the tailpipes down and i'f see it on big power turbo cars to reduce the likelyhood of torching a close following car behind. Is this for noise?

And sorry to derail but the buggy sounds interesting. Any links?

Lovely to see an update, and so pleased it has met your aims of a usable, drivable car instead of a one trick pony hot rod...

Is the plate just for show, or have you got it IVAd and road legal?
