    Ford Fiesta ST150 MK 6

    Car is off for a build. Few pic's of car before she hits garage In my quest for wheels I stumble upon this. Motec MCR2-7017 Ultralight wheels. German brand with TUV, 7x17 et40 only 6.9 kg. Beats Oz Ultraleggera and ATS DTC by half kilo which were my favourites. Price wise also quite cheaper. So win win situation Only question is which colour. Copper mat, grey or black. It really hard decision as all look nice

    Thanks bud. Next on line is cam replacement, FF inlet manifold anst Dreamsience remap On yours, have you manage do adjust rear geometry settings. I have anembo rear axle spacers i think 12mm which leaves me without to many options to give more negative camber.

    It's aliveeeeee! How mot has expired and car is still not completed as far as body job (missing lights bumpers etc ...) I really hadn't have chance to actually try gearbox. We did try bit on parking lot but hard to tell anything from parking lot trial. Luckily a buddy who is working on body and assembly is located outside town with nice country curvy roads around. I rushed there around 16pm before sunset to take advantage of last rays of lights since headlight's are not installed. Gearbox is working fine, no any suspicious noise. Gear change is bit stiff which is related to other problem and is relatively easy diy. Quaife is such a lovely thing. After 350z and RWD I forget a "pulling" feeling of FWD cars and how much fun these hot hatches are on twisty roads. Scorpion manifold and sport cat together with 60mm Throttle upgrade are really noticeable. Car feels much more alive and is pulling stronger through rpm's which is also a benefit from flywheel which was shaved by 1.7 kg. As it is now and with present upgrades car is perfect for daily drive. Small feisty car! I can only imagine once all completed with intake manifold,cams and Dreamsience remap how handful it will be. And i really hope not to go full retard and extreme again as always one upgrade leads to another.

    So.... Got the car from shop. Gearbox looks to be working fine. Installed power steering cooler and Vibra technics torque link. Went to borrow a tow truck, loaded car and left if with another buddy in body shop. Finally bit movement in positive direction

    To be honest things are not going the way I intended. Way too much delays with gearbox which are weak link on ST but hopefully that is sorted now. All new bearings have been installed. This evening I'm towing car back do body shop for assembly. Keeping fingers cross that all will work well with inlet manifold and camshafts. Once you start playing with this things you never know what you will find under the surface.

    From what I've managed to find on-line reviews are that this is closest thing to ITB's and from few video's it sounds really good and loud. Compression ratio is 10.8:1 on ST but I don't wan't to open engine I will try to keep as simple as possible just bolt on mods aside cam's. I realy hope to see 190 bhp figure at the end. So far biggest concer is ECU tune in Croatia. Hopefully all will work well with Dreamscience Awesome looking Almera bud

    Bit of updates after a while.... Buddy who is doing painting had delayed so much. More than a month. Also finally we found reason of gearbox problems. Bearing's from IB5 which we use for repair are different than ones on standard Fiesta ST150 IB5+ gearbox. Sometimes rushing and taking shortcuts takes toll. To avoid any further problems we ordered complete set of new bearings seals etc. New LUK clutch set with slave cylinder. Hopefully by Tuesday car will be back again for final assembly to body shop and MOT. Deposit payed to Fusion Fabrications for inlet manifold which gives huge improvements in torque and mid range.

    I've set my eyes on new Husqvara 710 Supermoto. I hope after this hitch abroad I will be bringing one home in January. After this enduro addiction and motocross I was amazed how easily these bikes are riden. Having spent almost 13 years now on sportsbikes and riden quite a lot of different naked and sport bikes I've was aming for something light, agile and most of all fun to tackle daily activities. Since I was lucky to survive years of all kind of road driving Im not planning to push my luck any more. I will leave my Duke solely for track use, for small daily activities I have scooter and Husqvara will be for all the rest but mainly just for fun and smiles per miles. Original colour scheme is white blue and yellow but a lot of aftermarket graphics is available. Black are my favourites. Single cylinder engine 75 bhp 145 kg of weight, ABS which can be turned off on rear wheel, 3 mappings and so.

    Again lovely weekend behind us. All in all was team of 7. 4 atv's and 3 mx bikes. Terrain has changed drastically since last ride. Mud all the way. Very slippery, very demanding and physical quite challenging but still fun all the way Forest early morning is really soms sight. Bit of fog and slight drizzle. Beautiful scenery.
