Looks like great fun. Good Job!

Just a thought....the aux guages...get some PVC pipe and cut them on an angle to remount the guages so they face you, instead of the rear......just a thought.....and position them so the needles are straight up ( at operating RPM or temps, etc), so at a quick glance, all up, all good.

indeed, my boost gauge is flat and sometimes have to have a second glance, would piss me off majorly if it was under race conditions

this is awesome. shame the kit was badly damaged.

i have always wanted a saloon car.. maybe after the lane gets boost ill look into it some more.

i could have missed it, but whats inside the motor apart from the pistons? what cam is it running and will you add boost later on?

Be interesting to hear what power you have out of it...

At least being a spool it'll be predictable when you corner and flatten it... You'll be able to hang some nice sideways action on the way out of the corners and please the crowd... But only when your leading and have a safe gap to be showing off... ;)

Flash brakes, did they end up costing over 2k, one day I might like some big ones for my car but I may just never have the money too... Do they retain e series offset, or are you running au offset wheels?

Goodluck with the racing...
