    First track day at Sandown went off without a hitch. Car was perfect and didn't have any dramas apart from the weather and the wiper motor crapping itself. Otherwise the car is fucking amazing and is just a beast

    A few little things to sort out like better chair position and mirrors

    Here's the pics and vids - Id love some feedback

    Cheers

    Matt









    Lots of brake dust...



    Vids





    Sorry for the angle









    Safely back on the trailer



    Thanks for looking

    Looks great, sounds great.

    Have you stopped grinning yet?

    Given how wet it was here Tuesday, that was one hell of a day for a shake down.

    Good to see it back on the trailer in one piece.

    Do you know why the wiper motor died? I'm sure you've already got it sorted but if not I have one you can have.

    Shaun.

    Yep, still grinning....

    Not 100% why it died. We had wired it up direct to the motor with 12v and just the high speed setting. I'll take you up on that offer mate as a spare would be great. I'll be in touch

    Cheers

    Hi Mate, We got 135hp atw but this was on a very conservative tune and we didn't rev it too much


    We had it dyno'd at 189hp at the flywheel

    Cheers

    Hi Matt
    First off, good job on the build, really good looking car and sounds great
    I was wondering where you bought your kit and did you have choices?
    Sorry if it's in the thread, I haven't read it all and I'm a little late to the party
    Cheers

    Last Sunday was Small Ford Sunday for my Car Club. The largest small ford show in the southern hemisphere with 286 small fords braving the 40 degree heat to put on the show

    I was lucky enough to win best competition vehicle which was a surprise as I wasn't going to enter

    Keep an eye out for an article in Classic Ford as there will be lots of pics on the show in there

    Anyways here are a few pics

    Car looked really good sitting there in the sun. Those hours of taping and masking for the paint job really paid off.

    The overall standard/finish of the competition cars this year was way higher than the usual tattered rally cars.

    Your win was well deserved, you should be very proud.

    Shaun.

    Thanks Mate

    Shame we couldn't catch upon the day!

    Yes, the quality of the cars was great this year in the competition section with a number of news cars which is great to see rather than the same ones each year.

    I was very happy to win to say the least

    Cheers

    Matt

    Racing 1/4 mile oval...in the old cosworth..gave me a chance to play with roll centre settings (moving it left to right to see if i can go round corners faster ect) and try different geometry settings.. to see if i really know what im doing...ha ha. Had a blast...the track has now closed...and the other tracks are only racing on saturday...and of course i have to work...
    Will be back on the escort...going to change a few things ive already done...as we say 1 step forward 2 steps back...but as you are aware for me its the building i enjoy the most.... Your car looks stunning... Im looking at a capri....to make a Zakspeed retro mod..but i dont no when on earth i would have time to build it...ha ha ..
