That's a shame, when are you aiming to have the car ready?

I'm not, itll be done when it's done. I was chatting with Brian I my garage the other night and it sort of became clear I want the car to be right, or at least the issues and compromises sorted with it before it gets used properly. It has loads of power but the handling is lacking, the weights wrong, the wiring needs ripping out and doing again etc and my current interest, the front end, re-doing, then I'd be happier

Glad to hear it 👍 it’s got the potential to be batmobile beating.

Thats the problem, Batty was far more effective than I ever realised, even with 100hp more most venues I cant get near Batmobiles times

maybe you should move this one on and build another bat?

Hi Craig,
So glad to hear you’ve not thrown the towel in on the Sabre and sticking around the Scimitar scene! :D
Catch up at Curbs and in the meantime, ponder your next move in sorting the car out to your satisfaction.
(If I was a little closer, I’d offer some motivational help in the form of holding a few spanners for you, making the coffee and polishing stuff, but nearly 3 hours is just a little too far away....)
Good luck matey!
Kev O

No interest from anyone when I looked to sell the car Darryl, so will stick with it for now :-)

Presumably being inspired by how long it's taking me to build!

Haha, no. Generally others have nicked my ideas, so nice to have your car to pinch ideas off :mrgreen: although mine will always have more tywraps and tank tape than yours :lol: couldn't be arsed to spend as much time and effort asbyouve done making lovely little brackets, I'd go mad! Mine is more the 'Scrapheap Challenge' version :lol: :lol:

Thanks to Ben Gough and Brian Crouch I've been doing a little tinkering on the Sabre

Also removed boot floor, mocked up some front suspension mods and stripped another gearbox with a view to rebuilding.

Also got some new rear trailing arms off Darryl to convert to rosejoints for toe adjustments like Batmobile

Good to read you’re not letting cobwebs form again :wink:

With BG and BC I suspect there’s enough urine extraction going on but if you need more abuse, just shout :mrgreen:

Bless you Phil, but you have the fluid extraction flow theory the wrong way around... :wink: :mrgreen:

Happy to take the pi55 out of you anytime you require, just holla :D

The brake bias box is a really nice looking bit of kit!

I'm glad you're getting back on with the car.
