    Because Driftworks is full of people who like to think they know and can do everything despite reality being totally the opposite, hence why so few UK builds get posted on here anymore.

    It's not like this is a hashed together load of junk, the car is an immaculate full Volvo service history car with electric leather etc, and the conversion is mint, looks almost factory now done.

    And Volvos are awesome cars, unless you're a blinkered JDM or whatever bummer, as good as anything else n better than a lot.

    It's pretty awesome, for what it is (cheap and simple). Sounds immense, bet it does like stink and puts a smile on your face!

    But it doesnt take away from the fact that you could have used that money and week's time to get something done on your rx-7...that's where people are coming from, I think. Anyways... its your life, not ours :)

    probably jealousy mate. Stav builds a big loud bus in a week for no money whilst the rest of driftworks spends 6 months trying to work out which direction theyre driftworks offset spacers should be pointing :rolleyes:

    Kev-340s are ace, good comp!

    It's literally taken no time and money from the FC to be honest. Maybe a bit of money, but none I need yet at least, and defo no time.

    That's the trouble with here, everyone assumes they know things.

    Megalolz at this thread..

    Iv got one of these Volvo's as my daily driver.. With the 2.3t manual.. It's caused me nothing but hag and I constantly wonder if it's going to complete its next journey... BUT I kinda still like it and I'm reluctant to get rid of it... The engine is good, it's just the electrical gremlins that are causing ballache..

    I'd have liked to seen you put a mental turbo on the original Volvo lump, but this is still cool.. You get a thumbs up from me:thumbs:

    You say it is fine for MOT but I am not sure about emissions tough, and cops will still pull you over because of the sound. Brakes look pretty shitty as well. Keep that piece of shit off the roads!

    Emissions aren't an issue.
    Never been pulled yet.
    Brakes are good and there was no hard braking on any video so you're talking out you bumhole again. In fact the current engine is barely any heavier than what was removed, lol.

    This car is far better built and better condition than 90% of the cars on here.

    This thread is awesome for summing this places average mentality up lately lol.

    That's exactly why I haven't put my stagea build thread up here. Too many people will tell me it wouldnt work because the Internet or there best friends mates cousins moms Tuesday shag said it wouldn't


    I love this, much like all your build threads. They built to do something and not just to cater for the masses !

    This fucking thread. Jesus.
    Cool car Stav, love seeing shit like this, and as has been said its a Shame proper builds don't get put up here any more. Full of people who can fit parts to cars as opposed to people willing to engineer things to make it work the way they want it to.

    Skid pics coming soon I hope? Sounds like the devil

    Megalulz.

    I was entertained by this project. Looks cool as fuck, would be a sleeper if it weren't for being so loud :wack:

    And I quoted this one sheerley on the fact stav said bumhole, a term i've not heard in a longtime, a very 'soft' swearword to use hahaha
