hi all ,
Am dave , am member on RTOC "renault turbo owners club" i love turbo cars, I have a renault 5 gtt and my mam owns a the esprit turbo.
For the last year or more i have had my project runing every day to a good reliable standard.
have tuned it to run as a gtt race cup car did in the 80's and 90's
Have learnt massive amounts done things i never would of managed without my halfords socket set and and jack handle.
and mick from time to time for some sound advise and for the help relapping my valves and showing me the ropes of stripping and building an engine,
my little pushrod 1400cc t2 turbo 15 psi boost, 150bhp / 870kg power to weight is great and cheap to tax, have classic car insurence. and is pretty good on fuel
my love for the esprit or dream should i say, started in the mid to late 90's when was about 15 ! i use to look in autotrader and top maques and dream and tell my mam how she should get one!
years later 2007 she had a windfall and treated her self to a different car , I showed her the car she has today rather than a crapy bmw m3 lol, She ended up in another car i showed her a cavalier 4x4 turbo, 2 owners ,low miles , it had a fault and burnt out .
The lotus she has now was still up for sale after the cavalier died, so went and had look at it and she got it straigt away.
my writing and spelling isnt always the best, but i do try. Hope you all can understand me and help me along my way.
cheers all, dave j
