    FAST FORWARD to 2017 and the start of the comeback.. so i thought...

    I went to see Craig at Violent d for a new livery in my chosen colours...

    And then disaster struck...! overheating dramas all year. Headgasket on the 1jz...

    So time to upgrade to a 2jz.. well 1.5jz!!

    I managed one more round at the NEC with more issues with overheating clutch fluid, + temps etc etc

    And this was the end of my 2017 with a unexpected holiday and too much work on the car i called it a day on the championship and fixed the car up for some off season testing.

    Thumbs up

    Sooo on to 2018!

    Car was all good to go and with very little to do before round 1. so i just decided to have a slightly new look with the wheels and got them refurbed in new colours.

    Didnt drive particulary well to start the season, mixed with misfires and some horrendous map on the car that melted my superspark coilpacks.

    Luckily i found MB automotive who is a absolute genius, the car now runs a Audi coilpack conversion and the engine runs so smooth, quiet and rips like never before.

    Headed to Driftland scotland feeling good! I just about qualified but got knocked out by NO1 qualifer.

    We then had a open practice in the evening which was probably the most fun i have ever had in the car...
    but ended by blowing up my gearbox.... which pretty much ended my season. - new gearset took 5 weeks to arrive, (and then with wrong parts) dont ask.....

    My Good friend Benny has done a few videos of some of the rounds

    sooo on to where we are up to now!!

    I have decided to rebuild and improve the car further.

    Tube frame the rear end, with a fibreglass Clam shell rear.
    DMAC fuel cell to simplfy the system and a larger radiator.
