I bought this from Phil and it has been a great wee car so far. Itís not done too many road miles since I bought it as Iím mainly using it for track. Itís been on 5 or 6 visits to Knockhill and a trip down to Croft for the Durham & Derbyshire RSOC day. Only had 1 issue in that whole time when a driveshaft let go on the final session of the day up at Knockhill.

Since I purchased the car Iíve fitted an S1 rallye gearbox with gripper plated diff, changed the brake fluid to Castrol SRF and DS2500 brake pads. Also fitted R888r tyres.

The car has been great on track, I mainly only run it at 11 psi (223bhp) to keep the gearbox in one piece. Tried upping the boost to 15psi for a couple of sessions but thatís when the driveshaft let go. It has certainly surprised a few much more powerful cars up at Knockhill though and gets a fair bit of attention when in the paddock from people wanting to know why itís so quick.

Iíve a few upgrades planned such as, adjustable top mounts, more track focused front suspension, thicker torsion bars etc. Toying with the idea of doing a gearbox upgrade, not sure what yet but will wait until the gearbox lets go before that happens. No plans for any power upgrades as yet as reliability is more my priority.

Hats off to you Phil, you built a great wee car which I know I'm lucky to be getting the benefit from all of your hard work that you put into it. Iíve booked on for Croft again on 7th July next year. So if you want to see how the car goes Iíll take you out on track with it.
