That looks fun, nearly as fast as my Striker!!!


You better change your signature, I doubt that is only 640Bhp \ ton.





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

a worthy successor to the awesome Phoenix,...

I think the Phoenix needs a tribute gallery

1.7 bar of boost

It's amazing that they can use Suzuki head and cylinders.

I,m sure you will enjoy, may be a bit tricky if it falls off boost I guess.

Don't know yet but paddleshift and clutchless changes will sort that out pretty quickly.

My RS4 was well over 2Bar of boost.

Some photos from the weekend. Won the class at Snetterton 100 (FTD by some margin as well) and won at a very dampy Cadwell on the last run of the day. Not without its issues but the car is better now than it was on Saturday morning and I didn't damage it.

Even on low boost it is mental fast.

Damp track, 7.5K rpm and slicks
