    Just got home after a 12 hour tow. You start out in the first hour with, "what was that noise", "did it move", "is that tyre flat" and by the 7th hour it's, "meh, I can see the badge in the mirror so it's all good"

    Realised it's got a bolt in front section to the cage so that's good

    Every fucking time lol, half the time I could swear it's moved back/forward lol

    The whole car is a really good setup, bit shit looking on the outside but that's half the fun, its crazy how streetable an almost mid 8 sec car can be

    Ended up getting a Toyota Dyna. So between setting that up and getting this into one of my garages, that's my focus at the moment

    Is it a good sign or a bad sign when the car you buy comes with a spare motor and box???



    Plan is to get this to the track sooner than later. Also want to start setting it up to take to Drag Week next year. Doesn't need to be quicker, just want it simpler and easier to work on. Going to remove the surge tank that's currently under the centre of the car and weld one to the side of the fuel tank. Also relocate the 044's to the side of the tank so they are better protected and easier to get to

    Will the yanks let this run 8s with the current cage? Don't they have tougher regs than ANDRA?

    Unfortunately having spent some time in a Dyna, you won't be playing "what was that noise" because you won't hear a fucking thing over the racket.
