I hope the Silver MK1 in the picture is not my old one - nooo


Don't worry, it's not your old one Daniel. The owner was paid out & in another 996.1 CS within a few weeks. He's retained the salvage on the old girl but in truth it's not much more than the engine, box & interior. The story ended as well as it could in the circumstances Smile

That's good to hear Nick, what colour is the new beast? Pretty quick resolution and payout Thumb

Zanzibar. Right up your alley, Mike. On throttle bodies with a Motec M600 ECU. Intake noise is mental as it revs to 9200 Mr. Green

Sounds perfect, Nick!! Happy days, where on earth did he find that so quickly? Open throttle bodies will probably give a 'steppy' power curve, but who cares when they sound that good Grin

Top work by the owner, he is certainly well connected.... thumbsup

He did say it gets to 5K and a fraction of a second later it's on the limiter in the lower gears; a real rev monster!

It's a UK car, actually been for sale under the radar for over a year. He called me about it when the money hit his account & we agreed he should at least go see it. Bought it after a test drive. HUGE bills for the build & the previous owner & engine builder are well known as good guys who know their stuff.

That's just cheating.

Will need to add serious lead ballast to that car to make things fair.

You could lead ballast the car all you want, he'd still be faster... Mr. Green
If you want to to slow him down, you'd need to lead ballast his shoes and take him for a swim in a very deep river .... Very Happy
