Finally pulled out some of the footage from nearly FOUR years ago and processed it, because it was massively over-exposed, which is why it looks a bit odd:

Nice lap, although you didn't have your infamous left hand turn down force aid with you on this one.  :grin:

Needs stitch-welded control arms replaced and new front dampers, as well as a replacement headlight fitted and a few other bits and bobs, but it's right and good, just haven't had the budget/time for any track action in 2013.

£70 well spent on a set of good condition Team Dynamics 1.2 (I think) rims for this tonight, so I still have two sets after the upset at the end of 2012.

May get some more attention tomorrow, as well...

Hooked tyres off two of them and checked the weights - they're 7kg each, on the nail, so only .5kg heavier than the 5-spoke ones I already have, which is nice.

No, I'd say that's 1.9kg lighter than Sebrings, which weigh in at 9.9kg when last I checked.
