    Hey Everyone


    I was debating whether to put up a new project thread as there is not much going on, but i guess there's a few changes this year :)


    Here is last years thread when i made a lot of changes - Team Manfoot 2012 - Project Reliable Part Deux - driftireland.com


    Last season went well enough, with a 9th place finish in Semi Pro. The car itself was a lot more unreliable than the previous year, although running and driving pretty well, the solidness and heavy clutch has broken some bits and loosened a lot :)


    Currently the car sits with the diff out as im changing the shaft seals and while i had it out a noticed the weld in the diff has cracked. So hopefully a drop of snot weld will sort her out!! :) I must also change one of the rear caliper carriers as it sheered clean off at the last Mondello practice day! Ive finally plumbed in my Prosport gauges, was waiting on a sensor but got it sorted, thanks to Mick Barry at Barry's Motorsport.


    The biggest change this year will be a full repair and respray going to be carried out by a new sponsor, AJ's Works, in Ballincollig, here in Cork. As well as restoration, body work, painting etc, he is now taking on reupholstering, i will give more details on Philly and the lads asap. Thanks as well to my buddy Eoin for hooking me up with this great deal :eek:


    Another big change is the Alpha N chips ive ordered to give me some more power, higher rev limit, cheekier vanos and get rid of all that stupid air box, afm etc.....and il also be running some open itbs so she should sound hott!


    Apart from that, its pretty much fixing any problems, general tidy etc and off to the IDC. Not much pics at the moment but here's a few shite one's and il update asap!! Thanks for looking!

    Hey Everyone

    Again, another slack update. I fitted the Alpha-N chips last night, easy enough but seriously flimsy cunt of things. Started and ran the car today and it sounds sweeeeeeeeeeeeet and runs 100%, better than it ever did! So win win really, well unless it drives like a bag o bottles :) Car currently sits in the painters still getting prep work, should be in primer by the weekend :)

    Thanks as always to Phil and crew at Aj's Works - AJ's Works - Cork, Ireland - Auto body shop | Facebook

    Also, I am delighted to announce my New Tyre Sponsorship for the 2013 IDC Season!! AJ's Tyres in Blackrock, here in Cork will be keeping me stocked up on Rubber for the year. One of the nicest guys you will meet and his prices are awesome. Specializing in serious Part Worns and the Best Brand of New Tyres, he is looking to break into the Drift World, so give him a call about the brands you need :) Thanks to Eoin & Chris for the hook up!!!!

    Hey Everyone

    BIG Update......She's done. And i love it. Few small bits to do and im ready for the IDC Round 1 this Saturday.

    I Just want to say a MASSIVE thanks to Philly & Crew at AJ's Works here in Cork. I basically left the car in their hands, told them to do what they like and i must say its blown me away compared to the other seasons M3.
