I won't be using it that often but as I'm having problems with a 'juddery' clutch, Andy 'suggested' a launch MIGHT help the clutch bed in.

Unfortunately it's still the same

Here's an in car video of the earlier one. Can you tell I'm happy?

LOL at video! That person on the right in red on launch didnt look impressed and I bet the guy you were right next to when it popped and banged shat himself!! (I wonder if the novelty of the pops and bangs will wear off after a few weeks???) Sounds awesome though, need to get mine done!!!!

Thanks, I think it sounds great My new phrase is... "You NEED it in your life!" Andy IS god

Thing is, the pops 'n bangs are only on hard acceleration then lift off throttle (over-run). You don't drive like that all the time do you, so it won't get boring

I hit a traffic jam on the A55 just outside Alltami (Mold) & decided to take a detour via the Mold - Denbigh rd. Very nice, quick & twisty road. Loads of pops 'n bangs as I was up & down the gears, sounded like a proper rally car

Really good to meet you yesterday Bri.
Good to see that you're enjoying it. Just imagine what it'll be like when you get a boost controller and we map it properly with a bit more ooomph to it

As for the comments about my weekend attire then I'll just leave those for now as I'm afraid I might chip a nail if I respond to them properly and I've got a big weekend ahead

Andy

Andy

You never told me you wore womens clothes , I wondered why you kept trying to feel my leg

Once I've sorted the fuel filler pipe & got something done about the clutch, the boost controller & pump are next & of course, your services will be required

I only really launched the car to try it out & to see if it'd help the clutch 'bed in' but it's no better. The whole car is still shaking like an earthquake As you saw yesterday Andy, it's pretty horrible trying to drive it around town

I've spoken to Stevie at Unit 8 & he's been in touch with competition clutches (thanks Stevie ). They've suggested giving it some hard use & a couple more launches to see if it's any better. If not, it'll need investigating.

Dan, have you got any more info on that rally? Stage times, maps?

If I need to give the car a good spin, going to watch the rally might be just the thing
