    I know little about the cost of building a race car but that does seem like a fair price, no?

    Geoff is a perfectionist - it'll be a great car but where to race it here in that spec ?

    Ken's car, I could have bought from Dave for £9500 but didn't have the dosh.

    Any car from Stefan will be quick !

    Good for you Sean, that's a cracking car for the money. Those custom cages are excellent, a stiff shell is the best way to start out for a race car.
    Do you have any specs on the motor you can share with us? What is your final drive in the R180?

    Hi Matt.

    It's currently wearing a 4.6 but I'll have a 4.44 and 4.11 too and I think probably the 4.44 will be just about right but I must check once run in, dyno-ed and we know how the engine behaves, what's the red-line etc.

    When I was racing with the HSCC we all ran 4.375's witch was the secret ratio at the time.
    I believe a certain Mr B who we both know has moved to a 4.6. All depends on which tracks your running at of course.
    I'd be very interested to watch your progress.

    Mr B has retired despite now having 2x racing Zs !

    Don't hold your breath for me - I'll need some coaching (fancy coming over for a track day or two ?), car sorted, papers sorted, my papers sorted...health sorted....! The journey there will also be good fun and therapy.

    Dean was due to race at leMans next month, and his Spa Race in June was cancelled of course.
