That's very true. I got in the passenger seat for the first little bit, the guy put his foot up it and shit, did it take off!! He slowed down after getting into 5th, looked over and said "So...that was 12 pounds!!" :blink:

I just got home, and hadn't even put it in the garage yet when Llama came riding down the drive :lol:

yar, KP61 sprint with headwork, cam, extractors, exhaust, webber, lightened flywheel, 4.1:1 diff, kyb's, 30mm lower with stiffer springs, 175/70/13 on 6" wide turbo's, fully gutted interior and a mitsi pajero bonnet scoop....

good balance of grip, handling and power. dial up 4K rpm and dump the clutch and it would just hook up and go.


STUNTCAR!

As ordered :)
I did a few calculations last night, and figured out that at 12lb boost, it's got roughly the same power to weight ratio (in kW/tonne) as a 2011 WRX STI. That's based on the pervious owner's weight claim of around 800kg. At 18lb boost, it's got 225kW/tonne. :blink:

Looks good. Just noticed the shot from the rear, my advice just do your homework around Schedule A from the Motorsport Manual before you go chopping out the boot tray. You will need a sealed firewall between it and the passenger compartment (and the battery) if you want to run a fuel cell in there, unless you run a filler tube up and out to exit one of the rear guards. Does it come with a logbook and homologated cage?

PBR, yes it's completely different to the Lynx, will take some getting used to!

Dents, yes it does have a homologated cage and log book. Seats and harnesses are FIA approved too.
I'll read up about the fuel cell thing, thanks for that. My neighbour suggested that fuel cell idea, he's done it to his, but reading your post I realised that his is a sedan, not a hatch.
