Hi guys, I thought you might be interested in the development of my evo build; project eXcalibur.

Many of you know me from way back and know I've always had evos, but I've been hankering for something a little special so thought I'd do my own build, and here it is for you all to see, and maybe get inspired by? I'm going to go into a lot of detail in this blog and leave nothing out.

"Keep to the left, threshold brake, turn, back on the throttle, trail brake and dig in, double apex but hold a single line, brake, feather the throttle and constant speed through these bends..." That's about 15 seconds worth of instructions you'll be processing when you're on a CAT Driver Training Day such as the one recently organised by the MLR's driver training co-ordinator. The previous days looked like great fun so I didn't have any hesitation in signing up for the latest one....
