bottom arms are such a minefield, buy proper arms for the car, the area 6 bottom arms i have on the car were a great purchase really helped the cars handling , get some negative camber on the front end, especialy with the torque youll be running, it will lift the front of the car no problem

I run a cambelt cover on the car, as i cant risk going into a gravel trap and jumping the belt , its day over if that happens. I just took thge picture to show the vernier puleys off

Hope to see this car in the metal one day, may try and get to FITP this year if it deosnt clash with other events

Never got round to listening to that.

Pure, unadulterated porn.

You better come along with a Shell V-Power fuel tanker to FITP and Ford Fair, because EVERYONE will want to hear this.

Can you tell me how you polished these wheels. I polished the hell out of my set and although they came up quite shiney they are not this good.

You can see where the weld was cleaned back and it looks like a little too much was taken off around the bottom of that side.
