    How did your strip run go?
    Have you managed to tidy up your launch yet?

    Best run of the day was a 12.6. I just about gaffed every run, with either hitting the limiter, wheel spin, not getting into gear, not warming tyres enough, boost hose blowing off. I still need more practice, but seem to be improving. I’m quite positive that I would’ve got an 11 if I kept at it... but 5.30pm came and it finished. Slim did really well... apart from destroying things on his machine.

    Excellent work mate! You should be very pleased. I dont think them giant fans will keep your engine cool spinning that slowly! Whys the bonnet up towards the windscreen?

    For cooling, it gets flipping hot under that bonnet.

    So the turbo doesn't foul the bonnet without the lifters? I always assumed it was a clearance issue

    Not at all, there’s loads of room. It is purely for cooling

    Fantastic Elroy. Great filming. Felt the suspense and a some of the addrenno rush! Going to be a good season for you as you gain more and more experience. Wishing you well. James.
