Sounds like an awesome rover!! I had a tom cat with minimal tweaks... pushing 220bhp at the fly so nothing major... Was great tho!

Its Paul (Poxy) you want teaching you Phill...Very good track driver and has come a long way since I first meet him.. I would not have a hope in hell of staying with him even with a 100 bhp more.....
After coming round camp it does not take a good driver to hold the peddle to the metal and get very high speeds at avonsrise.. Mind you slowing the thing down for quarry is another mater...
