Good work there Nas, between this and dismantling your own car, helping with/doing Arshad's E3, when do you go to work!

Im gonna try to make essex meet depending on my family commitments atm...i some times look at this forum like wish that car was mine and im still do..but at least i have one of my own now and so im totally happy with it. There always more room for improving it too as the driver seat do nt feel too comfy even on short journeys. Them springs are about to break through the seat. I can feel it. e_surprised

:) you need to take the seat out - and stick some more foam in there - or get a nice cushion!

Have you floored it yet?

Cromaman - the rad is a custom made and wont work on other engines as the ports are in different places. This rad cost £350 inc SPAL fan.

Took the car out yesterday to get the tyres sorted..it had slow flat and got them all balanced and tracked...made it very nice to drive again.

Nas80 i tried putting the foot down and Over took some cars yesterday it was epic, it just roared and pulled the road back.
Lol

Today its time to fit on front zender spoiler and loosen hinges and do a few test runs again .. there is some occassional knocking sound i need to look into.

He managed to swap my M10 in the same period too, which was a trial on it's own!

Also, nice car Raseeda!I got to take a good look whilst at Nas's doing the above. He did an awesome job. Good to hear you're enjoying it. It's bloody quick. :launch
