most of you know the story to nearly how it stands

i built my vts


loved it and after doing all the subs and leather rear seat stuff i decided i wanted it as a bit of track use and stripped it out

started looking at cages and bits and took it on my first trackday
where the car came to its end when i spun it into the gravel and it rolled

so i bought a new bodyshell and a mark 1 front end planning to reshell the car


but the dvla said i couldnt use that shell as it had dropped off the register and id need to buy a registration then swap everything across at a huge cost

also i bought a 1.1 as a runabout whilst i was working on my vts (and i tweaked it a little with a spax kit exhaust and an open filter)

then i bumped it and it went under the back of the car in front

so that was broken
but i thought ill put my vts stuff on the 1.1 so it got a bit messy

but since then its had a few more vts parts fitted (basically all of them including whats in the picture below)



and its now a work in progress (but its not running yet)
itll be getting a rather large track spec for it and should hopefully be quite a good little car

plan on taking it on a fair few trackdays around the country and maybe across to the ring and maybe assen if possible

    it's gonna be slow progress
    but wi basically be a race car minus a few bhp and some numbers when I'm finished

    and I might go for a bit more power when I've done a few trackdays

    yea its cammed
    when i had it mapped at chipwizards it was 152
    m trying to get a shorter box for it aswell (s1 rallye with a quaife)
    so itll hopefully pull quite well

    plan is keep it like that for a while then probably end of next year drop a set of bodies on add a bit of headwork maybe a lairier cam and some forged ineternals but that wont be for a while
