Ed, Yer that is a pain, its not as bad living on the south coast but it is a minimum 1.5-2 hour drive to any other track other than Goodwood which is 7 miles from home but is probably to most expensive track to do a track day on, although I might have an in through a mates old man to get shakedown time in the car park and possiby some free track time which would be frickin awesome if it comes off.

I do aim to get myself up to Scotland at some point (with the car in tow), I will give you a shout nearer the time, maybe aim to get to one of the rwdclub shows or meets.



im goint to church farm for ma holidays this summer that cant be far from you?

I am about 4 miles as the crow flies but about 12 by road from Pagham. I take it your probably not going to be driving down in the mini??

I will have more of a look around the rwdclub site once I get a chance, looks like you boys have some fun up there though, gotta love rwd.

Around!

Been bust sorting out lots of odd jobs on the mini. Mainly to do with engine stability and general suspension set up.
Had a few little issues a trackday back in April but getting there. Have a Hillclimb in couple of weeks so busy busy. You drawing to a close yet?

Yer I am getting real close now, although as you surely know just when you think you've finished a whole load of stuff you had forgotten about rears up. it should be up and running within 1 month. I honestly dont think any more could go wrong - famous last words......

lets put it like this I have this week to do a shed load as its going to have the doors hung next week, as all the parts for the doors came in a box with a load of other stuff coupled with the fact that I didnt take them apart I figured that it would take a mini specialist not that long to put them together compared to my weeks of head scratching to work out what went where. from there its just the finishing touches really - I say that lightly but those little touches take the time as well.

Seems like msot people have had to sort out their suspension once they have built the car, I wonder how mines going to handle with the anti rolls? I could do without the hassle of setting up the suspension but from what I have been seeing it looks like a necessary evil.

You should spend more time building that car so we can all see it finished :D .

I'm still around, slowly building a vtec version for another mate but due to change of work haven't done much recently. Will add pictures when something interesting happens.


And that's 3 replies in 2 minutes. How busy do you want it :dontgetit:
