Cossi theme... My mates 560BHP monster! Full slicks, AP's as big as yer head! 1000000bar of boost! Silly silly quick! Taken just after it went pop at Cadwell summer last year. Due back with near 600BHP. FORD... fix on race day!


absolutly love that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hard as fook and the best colour


I'm a quick driver, driven a good mix of circuits and a vast number of quick cars! This frightened the shit out of me! We are good family friends with Antony Reid and he did his best to scare me some 15yrs ago around donni in a super quick TWR jag! This wipes the floor with everything! At Cadwell we where on the back of one of those crazy quick Radicals. The drivers face was a picture! It's truely bonkers! But after it popped I was told he'd already put over £10k in to the bay! Super cool :D oh it's RWD! Sideways at warp speed 10!!!

i've had a few offers on the rsoc but i'm not in a hurry to part with it :wink: i was looking for a mint "cough" capri shell to drop it into :D

i ran the engine for just under a year but it done 3 turbos (t4's) droped a valve at crail , ground 5 teeth of a cam pully so the timing belt jumped off and bent 10 valves @ 10 of the best .

so after that i went back to a standard engine . it made 465bhp @ the rear wheels on ava's rollers holding 30psi :D i got into debt cause of that car :lol: :lol: :lol:

my brother in law has his own racing team, done quite well in the john cooper mini challenge over the years but this year they are lucky enough to be running 2 BMWs in the 2010 BTCC championshp.

keep an eye on them folks.

Talking of reasonably priced race cars- a mate has just bought a 2007 spec Ford Falcon straight out of the Aussie V8 Supercar series. Its a pukka ex-works car and is beautifully built. Heavy but super quick*.

*Although that wasn't us driving it along a certain major road in Northumberland a few weeks back officer. :twisted:

My beloved Alfa Giulia has taken another step neerer the paint booth this week. Its also costing a small fortune in goodies from Alfaholics again- next stage, full race brake set up with six pot calipers up front, billet CNC rear calipers and bias adjustable pedalbox. Will replace the piss poor set up that it wears in the pic 8)
