well i have well and truly been enjoying driving the car again.

1: suspension

the cars ride is great, feels firm and well grounded, minimal roll when going round corners or roundabouts.

can feel hard over a bump but when bedded in it will improve. the geometry needs setting up and camber/toe re-checked again, but this will be checked when i goto hethel.

2: cooling

the car never goes above the 90 mark on the temp guage, the fans kick in when they should and even on the hottest day i have taken it out in at standstill it still remained fine.

3: engine

its a killer only being allwed to take it to 3000 revs and no higher, but its for a good reason to bed the pistons in and the other parts. i have finally done the 500 miles needed before its first service , so all i need is to either go down to troy or for him to pop up before gaydon and get the first service done.

4: overall performance

the car runs great no hiccups really, one of the gear linkages came loose but that was an easy fix.

a few things to double check at the service to aliviate any fears i may have and alls well. thats the first 500 miles out of the way, only another 50,000 to go!!

Hi Si,

It's so good to hear you actually enjoying driving and looking after your car after all the misery it was bringing you before. It makes all the lying and skullduggery worth it :lol:


More speed, less haste
