    had this little beast for a while now :) after a road trip to essex, got it for a good deal with hard top car is in good shape as is engine and box this is my first drift car and i intend to use it on track as much as possible ( hence me having shite wheels still cant afford them as iv been to lydden hill 3 times now felt iv got a little bit better along the way, i started off a little too excited but learning the car and makeing it better where possible

    have added the following to the car since owning it

    4 puk clutch
    stainless steel 4 - 2 -1 manifold
    dw x2 rack spacers per side ;)
    hydro hand brake ( no im not interested to here your views on weather i need one or not :) )
    coilovers
    mig spec diff

    im currently in the process of collecting parts for a low budget turbo build which im pretty looking forward to ( not to make me drive better im aware that wont help me) but it will allow me to enter quicker ;)

    at the moment im just enjoying using it lydden hill is a rather large track to learn on but am loving it!

    will post up track day pics soon


    will be adding a detailed write up of the turbo setup when i get all the bits together and start builing

    ,,,,,, next track days silverstone the 22nd of aprill then 12th may lydden hill :smokin:


    few piccys
