    we should hire out curborough sprint track. £500 for the day and is locked off to us all day. Would be great.
    10 people should be easy to get together. Only £50 for it all day. Would be great fun. You can fly Drones there aswell (@Addicted) :smile:

    @Wellbs following from the rolling road thread.
    Mine has a ktec/janspeed exhaust on. Decat no center and 1 backbox. It was 88db in feb and 95db yesturday, depends on the noise limit on the day but i would think if you still have the 2 backboxes you should be ok

    How you doing buddy? She has done 76miles this year she has been sat at my mom and dads house for nearly two years now not being used with no interior in her at all! ....... But I'm at the start of getting her back on the road for full use! She is still very clean but needing a re spray on the front bumper and bonnet which will be happening around April time! Really have the love back for her now! Still got your beautie mate?

    Ive got launch control and flat shift on it now so its pretty damn noisey lol! And ive changed the exhaust as when i came off track at ford fair the paint on the back bumper was being ruined so i imagine it was throwing flames out lol. Ive had a complete new system with custom angled tailpipe which can change if needs be

    @Cerrone I would recommend @MicKPM and Diamond Motors, I thought I had a decent 182, but when I got the cambelt done, it turned out some C-unit had attacked the innards with a screwdriver, some crappy putty and generally I was lucky it lasted as long as it did. Mick did the rectification work and it now runs like a dream.

    He is over towards Nottingham, so you can drop the car off and get the train to Notts and chill out for a bit and pick her up and have a nice drive home!
