Haha cheers.

Yes they’ve got centre caps but I wasn’t happy with the finish of them so they’re being re-done. I should have them back this week with a bit of luck.

Track prep day for next weekend.
Visited a mate in Ashford who knows a thing or two about Renaults!
Engine oil change. DS1.11’s fitted. General inspection and some brake cooling ducts fitted in place of the front fog lights. Thanks to @trackspec197 for supplying them.

Nice to see @Micah and his lush 220.
Get that BGW mate:thumb:

Ready to go for Snetterton on Saturday.

Ducts look great.

You should get a full spec-sheet up; to remind me, everyone - and possibly even you; of all you've done to this car (If you've not done so already). I'd bet you couldn't even remember everything without a bit of thought......

Have fun Sat.

Snetterton Update:
Very eventful day! Weather was perfect.
Started off by dropping a screwdriver in the engine bay just before sighting laps! Could not find it let alone get to it. Managed to shake that loose though by jumping the bridge that goes over the track on the road out! Not ideal
Was running used Dirrezas for the first time so first few laps took a bit of getting used to but once I got pressures and setup right they were another level.
Split a driveshaft boot just before lunch. Grease and shit everywhere. Blue Peter fix with some surgical gloves and insulation tape meant I could carry on in the afternoon thankfully. Will fix this ASAP.

Engine performed flawlessly and coupled with the direzzas has elevated the old girls performance more than I could’ve hoped for. Was passing some expensive kit!

@Beany came down and was great to see how his car is taking shape. Nice to catch up with a few other forum members as well who blagged some passenger laps!

Managed hardly any pics as I was to busy having fun/panicking! Hopefully Javelin will have a few nice ones.

Good stuff ! Driveshaft boot is what it is: but you must have been bricking it ref the ‘missing screwdriver’. What a nightmare.

Sounds like you and the car just get better and better together....
