    til last night i've done most of this by myself.....our Matt's been out of action due to an operation on his nose last Thursday (had his nose drilled out to improve his breathing)

    he has managed to to do the mod's on my cylinder head while he's been recovering though Very Happy

    i have'nt had much time for eating, shopping or washing though........living off sandwiches from the petrol station near the unit.......got no food or bog roll at home.......& onto my last pair of pants n socks lol!

    took part in the Practical Performance Car Magazine 999 Challenge at York Raceway today

    ran 28.663 on the slalom......rubbish Embarassed

    did far better on the quarter mile....... 16.410 (best i've run in this car) Very Happy

    0-60mph was 8.42 (best i've run in this car) Very Happy

    ran the quarter against a Pug 106 XSi & wasted it Laughing

    also did 3 runs against an Uno Turbo.......beat him twice, all 3 runs we were right along side each other as we pasted the finish line Cool

    don't know what place i came.....deffo not top 10
