Is there any reason why you have stuck with A series? I mean the 100% dedication to weight saving, but then keeping that heavy old tech when compared to modern engines with much higher bhp per kilo available?

No offence intended.


None taken.

I’ve been tempted by a few conversions. I only really see a bike engine getting the weight down considerably more. Always felt they don’t lend themselves well to a car though, I like torque. Did look at D series Honda, even bought a head but just couldn’t do it.

Something about still having the A series and it being turbo that I really like. I guess it’s not ‘cheating’! It surprises a lot of people. Not had many reliability issues either considering the use it gets.

A couple of in car videos. I know people have been asking to see a few for a while!
 
Goodwood

 

 
Castle Combe 

 
Car has been running really good lately, although the turbo fell apart at Combe. All back and running again, back out on the 14th at brands for a trackday.
 
Am planning to go for it next year and enter the fastest mini race. First ever race, no pressure!! Have order a load of kit that i have no idea what i am doing with, slicks, fire extinguisher, racewear etc.

Another GoPro video from brands hatch, with lots of overtaking!

Worked out I am doing low 58s regularly round here, but i should be able to drop that easy enough.

Brill! Makes a fab sound. I love watching the door frames chatter as you go hard into a corner.
