    Nice car, good to see some bare carbon. New wing doesnt look as effective as the old one.

    hey edi , thanks for posting the link .ACA are doing a great job on road safety these days . it encourages the new nsw govt to change things away from revenue cameras

    the carbon doors will be fitted in next month . friday i dropped her at the lotus soecilist simply sports cars at artarmon [ great guys ] to sort out some wiring . did the 6 hour regularity at phillip island in august and had a blast .

    am entered for the temora 1000 late october - i kilometre drag at the airfield . will take off the wing and the new doors have much smaller mirrors so there'll be less drag . hope to smoke some big capacity euro stuff :]

    the car will be weighed once doors are done = keen to find out the final weight . the honds motor , front IC , SC and all the stuff adds weight hopefully a bit is saved with full carbon body

    have a 'no carbon tax ' sticker on the windscreen which got a few laughs at the all british day recently and a shot in the ACA story .

    have put the big wing back on and added a splitter . the aero now really works on high speed turns like T1 at eastern creek

    have had the suspension reset by Simply Sports Cars at Artarmon and its awesome - rebuilt the 2 way shocks , stiffer springs , got proper droop out of it , camber , corner weighted .... it grips and grips now . beat PB at EC and WP without any sweat

    next is power - have ordered different pulleys and +40 thou head gasket thence a retune for more PSI .

    btw got a 23.32 0-1000 mtr at temora against a gallardo at 23.78 [ was 12th fastest that run out of 120 cars ] - with uprade will be even quicker

    have sold the Evo
