Yes, the adjustment to rear wheel drive had a steep learning curve. Still a bit dizzy! Had a few clenching 100+ moments around Debtors and several more at the hairpin too, my head obviously doesn't think with the rear wheels lol.

Really enjoyed it though, full props to Ted for the co-driver invite!

How did the Fonda hold up to the abuse? I couldn't believe how the MR2 enjoyed being rallied.

Hard to find good tyres at a decent price in 15s, looks like you could get 14s over the brakes ok and that would help with gearing and tyres. If you need stuff for the windows give me a shout Spud, back home in a week.

Looks like there was some proper tasty stuff there, I always miss the good ones lol.

lol always the way of it the time u dont do stuff is the time u should. just got an other lude there tonite for spares got coilovers on her but they are only sleeve ones that go over ur shocks. do u know if there any good. it has a header on it too, sounds well. it had been crashed and we only noticed it was leeking oil so we topped her rite up started it and the engine sounds sweet as a nut, but there is a constent drip hopefuly just a leak round the sump somewere have to get her up on the ramp yet. also u start it with a button and stop it with a kill switch. maybe swap that over to our tracker. yes john that would be great if u can get the perspex stuff cheap as we looked it up and its not the cheapest.

Car looks good, that header is bound to make a difference at the top end so worth a go. The slicks are a good price as well, what size of sheet do you need, thickness and overall size?
