Chequered flag roof slightly ott imho. Never mind the stickers though, how are you getting on with sorting out the bugs?

Sounds like a rogue trader.

Don't let rogues bully you... although inevitably, rogues are always followed by their cronies.

Sticker it up! Or get it wrapped in a full on race suit Cool

Until you find yourself at the petrol station 50 miles down the road after the full tank has depleted Smile

Simon, you got that thing "tuned" yet ? I think it's fair to say it was using a smidge more fuel than necessary last time I saw it.

Oh, and could you have made a bigger numberplate?

Thanks for the nice complements guys

Today I took out my White tyre marker and started to fill in the make on the tyres to give that old school racer look. Pondering if i should do the tyre model as well

going to get a Porsche and a "Carrera RSR" decal for the back

Personally I think you should. The tyres look a bit lop-sided with only one side in white script.

Weighed it today with a tank full to the brim with petrol it came to 1160kg's. So without out a full tank (93 litres @ .73kgs) that's 1093kgs
the stock widebody car weighs (according to the manual) 1260kg
so a saving of 167kg


I also plan on some further weight reductions but alot depends on where i save it. I don't wish to take any more off the front by loosing the spare wheel or a racing battery. But considering plexy glass windows, a lighter starter motor, no carpets and ceramic disks which could probably shed another 55kg

Any way on the way back home the upper Richmond road was chock-a-block so detoured into Richmond park to take a few snaps

And one more of the boot compartment
