    Thanks for the comments, im well happy with the vid its such a cool thing to have. cheers for your input on the setup, I have since sorted the steering which I was hoping was going to make a massive difference but it felt minimal slightly better though, It looks extra bad in that picture because I had just adjusted the tracking by eye and was toeing in by about a foot when I checked it.
    I think in reality I was making so many drastic changes every time I drove it it was gonna be pot luck if I got it anywhere near decent,
    I drove the car 5 or 6 times last year so expecting to have it sussed was probably unrealistic.
    Il keep plugging for now, cheers

    The steering angle on the car is incredible, props to an amazing build!

    Made a little vid of the build, I know you can see it all on here anyway but its always easier to watch a vid.
    Im making some big changes to it for this year which will include: longer wheelbase, re design the front suspension, bigger turbo and a new look.
    I will slap a video up when its all done.
    Cheers then

    Got the rebuild done and it all came out good. the car is now 10 inches longer with a new front end with all new suspension arms and strut tops, new rear end, new turbo and some bigger injectors.
    I took the car out for the forge action day demos and its a definite improvement. I think with some decent track time I should be able to get where I want it now. Im taking it to drift matsuri so that will be ideal for setting it up.
    im not sure on power but the chap who did the remap said it should be making around 340hp, I do know its proper fast though.

    Im working on another video so that will show all the new bits on the car and hopefully some good action shots of it. that should be out by the end of the year. Cheers for looking Matt
