Does any body know what happened to this? The guy obviously spent some serious money on it,had a few issues (don't we all) and by the looks of it that same year (2011) the tax and mot ran out never to be re done.... scratch

I am sure these were the guys that were doing it as a business company demo car. So many issues, time, and money along the way. The project stopped, came to a hault and sold up everything.

^ what you call issues and others call issues is night & day lol .
had a few on here with big power goals and build up a car from shell with dubious used parts and either have bad engine, turbo, box or parts badly matched to goals, poor tuner mapping experience etc then loose enthusiasm/budget and strip it .

Fearbox! I like it, I presume that guy broke the car for parts to which you bought them all.
And bad driver! Ha, we will have to settle this on track at some point Smile

Usually you just bail saying you need to fuel up but really you just cant take track action.

Haha thats the god honest truth, you came off from rockingham in the R as it scared you so you made out it had low fuel and it was surging so needed to fill up. You only go around in the Honda as its none turbo and slow

yes i know what happened to it, exactly what i said would happen

Car was owned by around 3 people but lets just say they all got carried away with the big power thing and eventually the stroker built engine which they had built by scottish big engineering company blew up and left them thousands upon thousands out of pocket then the rest that was any good was sold off

Shame actually as they were nice lads but just made some very bad decisions along the way which cost them dearly as would not listen.

Maybe this Is this the one I seen broke down at the side of the road. Lad was not happy as in the build thread had just had engine done. I nearly posted then thought maybe not as it wa scotland I seen it but bob adding the above makes me think it might of been. If not the guys I turned around and went to see if they needed help were not happy with that same engineering company
