Just spotted your location Nick, not too far away from me.
My daughter and wife have a stable in Gedney (Piinstock Stables) so without knowing I probably go past where you live...

Poppy, that name rings a bell.
Out of curiosity does she sell/modify saddles?
Like you say small world, glad to see someone close is also taking the plunge...

It's not the hp, it's the torque.


Ask any woman.




Although the light-weight nature of the car will help.

johno - poppy Is the saddley person. she stuffs them. bends them and sows bits on.

ashg - 2.5 years thats good enough for me. did u you use the omega box prop and diff? does the r28 need any modifications to the book chassis? widening bits moving etc?

did you use the ford front/rear end? hubs etc.

seems the more I read about your car the more similarities I see in what I want.

I see you went for the 2ltr saab? was that availability over the 2.3? or are the water pipes oil pic up different between the engines?
