I think that's one Fiesta that would own my ass.

What's the spec on it dude, looks like a fair bit of money has been spent from the engine bay pic :)

Interesting. Love to take it out for a play :drool:

SPEC:-- 2 litre zetec ( silver top) with Twin 45 Delortos, Stage 2 ported and polished head with stage 2 kent Cams and vernier pulleys. weber Alpha 3D engine management with 36 degrees ignition adavnce on full throttle and 7300 RPM limiter, 10 row oil cooler with remote filter, Bailey Breather , 4 branch maniflod and 2 1/2 inch exhaust system ( manifold is knackered , looking for new one hence finding the site)
It made 194 bhp and 176 Ibs ft torque at 7300 RPM

Also has IB5 gearbox with Series 2 LSD fitted and 4.2:1 final drive

Koni Adjustables with AVO springs, polybushed throughout, strut braces front and back

RS2000 front brakes with EBC grooved discs with yellow stuff pads , braided brake lines all round and DOT 5.1 fluid, In car biasing valve for RS1800 back brakes ( didnt like the rear discs fittd)

Fully caged, stripped out, buckets , harnesses, polycarbonate windows with sliders fitted

i use AVON slicks on Hockenheim alloys for the dry, and TOYOR888 with Mk6 RS2000 alloys for the damp/wet

probably plenty ive missed out, but its a wee tool of a thing , and does go well, and tends to embarass alleged quicker cars

Emlyn


Thanks for the warm welcome everyone

Emlyn, no I just do it for fun mate and although the car would be quite competitive in some events and classes I just prefer doing the track days and fun events, less hassle and a bit less expensive too :lol:

its been in both magazines quite a lot this year, Distinct advantage of having a track Fiesta is that Dave Moore ( PF editor) and Neil Davies ( FF article writer) both have track day Fiestas, and Neil has been in my car up at Crail raceway on the handling circuit, and I know both Steve McCann and Ade Brannan who are feature writers for both mags in Scotland

I beleive the cars in the Fast Ford again this month on a feature about track cars 8-)
