Wakey wakey

I managed to kill the T5 in my Chimaera with only 280bhp so they are most definitely not bullet proof, we are currently fitting a 5 speed RX8 box to an Essex powered SE6, I can provide more information if anyone is interested.

I also managed to get the glass out without breaking it which if you know me is impressive, I tend to break things just by looking at them and sometimes without. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/900/26649650877_865366c5a0_b.jpg IMG_20180417_133338 by Darryl Crosby , on Flickr https://farm1.staticflick...

In response to the earlier questions, we are just going to move the arches back roughly 7 inches. I kept the doors and all four wheel arches from the donor SE5 so I will see what I can do with those when it comes to the glass work.

that being said I had these same Toyo Proxies on my TVR and they were very good, quite compliant on the edge of grip and good for drifting.

And in response to the engine comments it will be fully stripped and inspected before we start using it, we have a full rebuild kit so whatever it needs it will get so when we do start burning rubber there will be no hiccups. should be abit of a monster with around 450-500bhp :twisted:
