  1. Sorry, I thought you said there was a newly released sportscar that doesnt cost £976,000? Will be taking a closer look at this for sure, nice to see theres still a V6 option as well, good work Lotus
  2. I dont have a power socket near the cars so use one of these: https://www.optimate.co.uk/products/optimate-solar, genuinely impressed at how quickly it can charge a low/dead battery, £109 Need another one for another car but they are sold out though, dammit.
  3. Rather OT but did I see your vert on track with Andy Forrests new ........ "thing" at Knockhill last week? If so, how much faster than an actual F1 car is it?
  4. I considered it but didnt bother turboing mine as to make the most if the gains you would need to be forged, SC doesnt do as much power to start with so I didnt really consider that was worth it for the outlay either. If youre going to do it then Id use whatever Horsham are happy with, if you can stretch to getting the engine forged at the same time its probably worth it IMO
  5. The road etiquette was one of the best things for me, so liberating to be able to drive quick. Round here people deliberately move into the middle of the road if they see you hussing up behind but up there people were pulling over wherever they could, I got RSI from thanking them Following pushbikes up Applecross pass was somewhat painful though, particularly for the 450hp Escos with the 2 position clutch
  6. Try again ............ FFS, no idea whats going on but its a very nice picture of an F355 on a hill and google maps Inverness to Cambridge
  7. Did it last year, doing it again this year. Well worth the drive - that was all in one day, the section from Perth to Cambridge was 422 miles in just under 5 1/2 hours with 2 fuel stops.
  8. More grown up than an MX5 but nearly as much fun. Has anyone ever been disappointed with buying a Z33, I know I wasnt?
  9. I bought a BTC when they were about £10K and a couple of Ethereum when they were around £700 just as a punt, obviously done quite nicely but the problem is recovering what Ive made as Im fairly sure Ill regret taking it out as it will continue to increase. I think its like stocks, you need to be in it long term to see the best returns (although Ive just doubled my XRP and XLM in the last month or so), Ive already said I wont touch the BTC until it goes to £100K - on balance Id rather lose what I didnt have than sell and watch it inevitably go to the moon BTC has a value as y
  10. No known issues but coilovers will fail over time - when Apex in the UK would replace an individual damper having to send a set off to Japan to be looked at was a bit of a pain to say the least Of what youve listed Id go with HKS but thats experience from a good few years ago, theres nothing wrong with Cusco, Bilstein or S-Tunes, I do seem to remember S-Tunes being £££ in the UK though
  11. HKS used to have to be sent back to Japan to be fixed, dont know if thats still the case? Teins werent ever really that good and Ive heard havent improved, cant speak for the other but I had HSDs on mine and they were really impressive for the money. Ive got Meister GT1 on my BMW and really rate them, CRDs are available for about £800 for the 350Z - might be worth a look? The difficulty with coilovers is very few people have used more than one type on a given chassis so comparison isnt easy
  12. No way to tell from those pictures, the diff is inside the casing but by the sound of it its a 1.5 or 2 way plate diff, probably Kaaz if you can feel it clunking. If you dont drift or track the car then you might as well swap it out for something a bit more user friendly, you should recover a few hundred quid out of it too if it is a plate type ETA that diff oil cooler is pretty pointless unless youre drifting too, probably some more money there if you sell on
  13. Can confirm its not just oil, hes a tight arse in general Good to see youre still about Tone, Richie was asking me about Project Pheonix the other day as it happens, how you getting on?
  14. TBH I think the big problem is emissions, my 9K revving 2.0 wouldnt get past the regs these days or would have to be so strangled it wouldnt be worth it, they havent fitted it to anything since 2011 FI gets round these very neatly and gives a load more oomph as well, crazy NA cars are probably gone for good. I have remembered it is actually a 1.8 though so the previous point about not moving on stands up even more
