    It emnates from you rdyno, threads you associate with absorb it osmotically and since when are you Brolly?

    And yeh, physics would vaguely disagree with your first statement and logic with your need to add the latter bit.

    And keen to see this madness too at some point.

    Coupla blokes in Brisbane have completed this conversion. Have also chipped (Power?) it so are in for fasts. I expect they will see at least 170mph, given the power to weight ratio n that.

    donor arrives end of month due to seller being retarded.

    So, having paid for the donor, i decided to remove the bumper to measure up. Sandy helped...



    "get on with it dad!!"
    2hrs later i finished... all thats left is the 13mm on the linkage, the driveshafts, and 3 engine mount bolts.




    tomorrow, interior, and weight removal.....


    time for a cider.

    Now make the other end lighter.
    Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

    I've got a couple of Supercheap Auto spec bonnet pins I think. If I can find them you can have them for a couple of longnecks or something.

    Hi sloth I am from belfast. I have build some redtops in the past that have easily done 158mph. These are not heavy cars so the power to weight ratio is better. I will upload a picture of my engine bay of my C20XET corsa i build myself it was dyno'd when the charge cooler was fitted at 286.3 bhp.

    Hey sloth, where's the heater fan on these fuckin things? Thrown yours out yet?
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."
