Nice work there like.

Probably been mentioned but is that a custom manifold or reflanged jobby and what management you on?

Last week, in preparation for the Forge Action Day at Castle Combe, my good friend Paul fitted some new wheel bearings,

VX wanted 140 quid for FAG ones, luckily I got the exact same bearings from AutoVaux for 65 quid delivered








Then - the weekend arrived, the car performed faultlessly, and didnt miss a beat on both track sessions (well, engine-wise - sadly the throttle cable snapped on the second session... Luckily Mr WG Motorsoworks fixed it so i could drive home




This is the only picture I took of the car...


And of course, a video
