I finally got around to adding a video to the datalogger; many people have asked what the T350's like to compete in, the answer is of course that it's huge fun once it's set-up right! biggrin

looks great paul, nice to be able to watch the speedo pick up. Many thanks for the hot laps last year at Oulton with Graham, you and the car were fantastic!

that sounds really good, also fast reactions from the gas, does it have also lightweight flywheel?

rofl a 'reset' button would be nice though!

Crimbo - glad you enjoyed it, was fun to have you along.

GTRene - well spotted, lightweight flywheel and lighter forged rods and pistons. Altogether the reciprocating mass was reduced enough to be quite noticeably quicker going up through the gears, by losing engine speed very fast off the throttle. The smoothest gearchanges are as fast as you can move the gearlever.

Really enjoyed that Paul! thumbup

What a sound, what a performance and what a great car. A few choice mods, and you can have a much better performing car with better looks for the price of a 'cheap' Sagaris... wink Probably helps having Mr Tail slide behind the wheel though! hehe

Very glad you've found a long term solution for that with the Str8six 4.2. Even if you seem to have forgotten the engine size in the topic title!! GTRene - having spent time in that car, I can best describe the engine as having the revviness of the 3.6 (peach of an engine to begin with) - but with the grunt of a nicely fettled 4.5AJP. evil

ah, a 4.2, is it much different then the 4.3 option form the other builder?
the way you describe the feelings about that engine and how it performs, sounds good to me biggrin
