    even though my micra powers the wrong wheels (:euge:) after fettling the engine and adding bike carbs. a 8.5 - 9k rev limit is fucking awsome.

    Ah excellente'!
    This should be a bumpin' car when it's done, it's going to be far more serious than first expected! Haha

    Don't forget I'll be having a set of the Grid-V's in Bornze too :D

    Stevo is the man , his engineering skills are second to none , its just slightly worrying how aroused he gets when doing it! (engineering that is)

    This is how it went:

    Phil: I want to paint it a different colour but not too different

    Steveo: CREAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

    Phil: Like an off-white or something

    Steveo: CREAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

    Phil: Not something thats too far from its original colour

    Steveo: CREAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

    Phil: What do you think Steveo?

    Steveo: Well, I think you should paint it black

    Phil: You're a bellend, I'm going to paint it cream.

    Less heat put in to it so theres less chance of warping the metal.
