      I literally have no words for how much awesomeness is exuding from this car.

      Video updates on this?

      Oh, what fun I've had lately with electrical issues! I've been plagued by a few niggling issues since I first fired up the car and all pointed to the TPS.

      I've had TPS issues with high-rpm ITB'd 16vs before with the adjustable sensors losing alignment and throwing the mixture and causing misfires etc.

      So, to cut a long story short, I've been playing around with different TPS configurations to sort the issue and have had to remap the car (at 4am up the freeway because it's so loud!) on several occasions.

      After months of frigging about, I decided to replace the ECU voltage relay (I have the Digi 3.2 ABF ECU piggypacked and still use many of its functions). Sure enough, all the issues seem to be gone... Who'd believe it? One f**king $30 relay!!

      I'll get a vid in the next few days

      Mag feature is also coming up too - photoshoot at the end of the month

      Just had a vid/interview done for the car (finally!), so I'll get it up in the next week if all goes to plan with the editing

      Otherwise, all's well

      So how well does it do on the track?

      Quite well with the 15x6.5s and Avon CR500s. No, it isn't a show car if that's what you're asking. It's already cleaned up one hillclimb and has a 3rd place in over 2000cc supersprint, against some pretty stiff competition. I actually think I could have picked up another place in this one if I were to have a shorter FD

      And yes, I will provide track videos when I get a GoPro HD

      Very nice I love dual purpose cars that actually get used for the intended build.
      Yes get that gopro up and running. I and it seem's others would like to see and hear her at full tilt.

      Excellent job job on the car and the video. Did I hear correctly that your running 13:1 compression. If so woohoo bet that little sucker moves.
