    Car is looking ace Adam! My one gripe with the time I had my Clio is that I never put a spoiler on it. Get up to Donny 31/10!! :thumb:

    You can be one of the first to see my new toy! :tongueout:

    In all seriousness, there’s a fair few going, will be a good day out. I’m just up there for the social and a few passenger laps, things to sort before I’m happy taking my car out on track for the first time...

    What caused the melting on the exhaust side? Lean mixture?

    Possibly ? I'm unsure . All the valves look fine so it's a weird one
