Craig,

About 340 bhp? seemed to drive nicely when I saw Stew drive it, but a bit of a handful on track? Should be good to watch, FUN at a wet Loton :w

I can't wait to see you out in that Craig. That's a lot of horses per tonne :lol: :D 8) :shock:

I assume its going on full slicks, and may go on a mild diet to remove some of the road going luxuries.

Let me know if you fancy swapping that crappy emerald for my Horesham S2 chip. I'll do you a good deal................. :lol:

361hp iirc Nick, and im guessing about 960-980 inc big 17" wheels tyres and cage, full interior etc

im not looking to worry about championship, points, handicap etc, purely times and as motivation to get mine built :D

Batty was 352bhp/tonne iirc so will be about the same im guessing.

No, will run as is, I want a car to use on the road and do the odd event in, if I start fitting slicks etc etc, it needs springs, dampers, blah blah blah, it becomes the project that I don't want.

If its undrivable (which I don't think it will be) then I will revisit tyres, but its for a bit of fun not to win, that's the new builds job ;-)
it has switchable maps, so easy to run a soft map and lop 100hp off, if its hard work

probably gonna do the odd trackday with Claire in it (shes looking forward to it as sprintings not really her bag, but like test days) and have a charity run and summat else planned for it, so don't want to bastardise it. Its a credit to Stew that its so mild mannered 90% of the time, which is what appeals. That and 360hp of course :mrgreen:

as ive said before, theres little point in going aftermarket ecu over live mapping the stock DET ecu, Stew had Emeralds long before me so he had one kicking around anyway.

Well, having come incredibly close to buying it myself, I can most certainly see the attraction. It wasn't quite right for what I wanted it for (pure sprinting and hill climbing, it would've been a travesty to make it competitive on handicap), but it sounds absolutely spot on for what you want it for. I am genuinely looking forward to seeing what times you can get from it. 400BHP per tonne :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
