Only smokes when its building boost then clears up, no smoke on idle and revving

Awful day at Crail yesterday, Made a late decision to go so still had all the seats in boot full of rubbish and normal tyres plus there was a 35mph head wind. Times were way down for everyone but i was disappointed with how it performed just ether too much power at the launch and not enough traction.

pretty much down in my stage 1 times

Finally got the Vibra Technics Solid engine and gearbox mounts fitted.

Was worrying about the vibrations but i feel theres actually less than with the standard mounts and a hell of a lot less than with the standard mounts and powerflex dogbone mount. Gearchanges are also alot smoother and direct and taking your foot of the clutch is alot better and smoother now too.

2 years today. Up’s and down but I’d like to think I’ve helped make one of the best Monte Carlo’s around.

Verging on 5 figures has been spent on it, nothing’s ever been repaired always replaced or upgraded.

40,000 miles too

Also loads of great people involved along the way. As soon as the car was bought it was driven straight to Ryan from Funk Motorsport house who worked on it at night in the rain and ever since then has put up with daft questions and advise which has helped out greatly.

Then Awesome which it went to next with the car involved in a slight incident on the way through to them and having an extremely busy stay stuck it on a ramp, checked it over and cleaned it up.

George for suspension help and when I first took it on track

Biggest thanks to Richard from Modified Lights UK for building an epic engine and talking me into making it what it is today.

Marc from Autobeam for giving me discounts 😂

Ecotune for the amazing stage 1 map and help and advice to at the beginning of the slippery slope.

Marty from MVR Scotland for the upgrades and last minute fixes before and after Crail and Santa Pod and Knockhill 😂🙈

Darkside Developments for the Range and quality of products they made and making me extremely poor at the same time.

ADE Tuning for the work and mapping work and special thanks to Rachael for putting up with the phone calls and questions but not so much for when I get the bill 😂

Squid Ink Design Ltd for the stickers and fitting them usually at short notice aswell.

Debbie from Perfectly Clean making it shiny and clean and also for arranging the shows and events.

Lucas for the club he made aswell.

It’s when you start looking these things up you realise just how many are involved and also the quality of what they know and what they do to the point the only ever issue has been a map sensor.

Few plans before the years out, interesting to see what the next 2 years brings.

Only regret, started this too late for Alex to see it.
