    Well if you come to the rolling road day and its dry i will take you out in mine,hopefully that will give you some more inspiration They do get on yer nerves,i nearly sold mine about 6 or 7 times now when i was building it. But once your out and about in it,it makes it worthwhile

    Good stuff
    I think you will find that gearbox's first gear is very long
    They go on forever in 1st and with a T4 waiting to come in
    Good for long burnouts in 1st
