Looks like I'm going to be out for more than just this month, as my engine let go at Cadwell this weekend. Car is at Rotary Revs where I'll be discussing next steps with Ben on Friday.

Ah well, onwards and upwards!

That's my rex with the bonnet up, thanks Nick for the compression test (not good news as such with low compression, but on the plus side have about 10 months warranty left)time to see how good the news is when I take it to the engine builders

Good meet nice to see everyone !
Bridgeport was starting to make ground on the racecar on the way back. Abit more time up in the higher end if the range and it should be able to take it comfortably :D few more things I can change and the map on top too. Extremely happy with it after that.
