nothing better than ford blue imo, unfortunately I didn't have a choice of colors, but....
Yet another reason to hate Europeans!

took it along to a PH RR day at wallace where the car made a healthy looking 221bhp (213bhp standard)


m3 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

then i got into the polished bliss way of life and gave it a detail!


m4 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


m5 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

by this point it was on about 20k , thought it would be rude not to show off my "practically" concourse car ,so i did a few car shows with it!


m6 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

was also up a alford for the SIDC day just to show the car again , but i heard track was on so i went on just for fun! was a good laugh! (leaning over makes you go faster!)


m7 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

a wee vid!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8jmu5R7LpY



another show


m8 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

now by now i had got a few things done to the RS's engine , decat full system , remap and a KN


m9 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

Much to my surprise she made 300bhp !

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YgX7EgbumI



back on track at another SIDC day


m10 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LChIj3socco


Then came a big deal for me ! , after i had done them little sprints if you want to call it that , i wanted to go faster , rather than sit down and think about maby going to KH or that , i decided to go to the RING! lol

i spent about 2000 just on bits for the car to make sure it made it back , a heap of little bits that were bothering me and also some coilovers as i found on track i was moving a bout to much under braking ! not what you need at high speeds at the ring!

had a ace trip and made it back in one peice which is always a bonus!


m11 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

lapping in the rain!


m12 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


ace photo!


m13 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


little vid ! , i think this was my 6th lap, 9:45 i think was the time

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=682m0vrbzX8



, and that was it ! i was hooked on track days and speed!

so as soon as i got back , guess what! , SIDC day again! lol


m14 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

followed swiftly by a KH day!


m15 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

then because the car had been well behaved , and not cost me anything , i had a few coin sitting so bought a set of TD pro race 1.2's!


m16 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


m17 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


m18 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

and now i had a spaire set of rims i bought 2 slicks and fitted them for feutre track days!


m19 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

didnt have to wait long!


m20 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


m21 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


then got a hybrid turbo and 4-1 manifold on


main2122 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


m22 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfyONOj_exI

glowing mani!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4hvTm7vOK8

then i started to think more track!


m23 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

365mm AP racing disks and calipers were fitted! aka fooking big stoppers!

along with a pro200 seat and SD 6 point harness!


m24 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



one final clean as i knew it was going to go down hill from here!


m25 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

bnt by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr


bnt2 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

cfradio by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

then got my other seat and fitted that! matching pair !



seats1 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr



next been toying with the idea for the rear diffuser , got two options top is like off a RX7 bottom is off a S2 lotus ,


diff by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

got a bit carryed away in photoshop! haha


IMG_8870 by Jack Strathdee, on Flickr

think the lotus one is what im going to do!
