Hi everyone thought id get a thread going on my Evo as believe or not a been getting emails for while asking if the car is still about or been wrote off etc for some reason just so if anyone is interested they can see one VII RS Sprint is still about and try get myself motivated to getting it on road again. Any way quick bit of info ive owned Evo's and been here since 2007 others being a IX FQ320 and a IX GT. I have had the RS since 2009 (i think) but its been off the road for 5 years now, not for any faults with the car just the normal life stuff really having 2 children, moving 3 times since buying it and since passing my ARD's test been building a MG ZR for racing but since the ZR is about done and things are nice and chilled at home now i want to get the RS ready for summer. I brought the car from MLR so some may remember it with the plan just to track it so first thing i did was to strip it bear and had a few years track action with no faults to report in that time before it got put away and forgot about. I know a few people will wonder why i bothered doing a ZR when and leaving the RS sitting around for 5 years or so but reasons are i only want to do club level stuff for cost so 4wd and turbos dont really fit in many classes there and the other being if i binned it that would be a large financial hit for someone like me. Any way enough of that and onto today, finally got it back home and started putting interior parts back in to see what is missing and what needs replacing etc so i will get paid up again and be posted in wanted sections soon i bet :rolleyes:











Oh and a few of the ZR planning on running in 750 MC hot hatch series :smthumbup

This year just going to....

Get bumper painted
Mapping at EPS
Do full service

Then I will use it in summer and decide if I'm going to keep it or not to be honest I think
Cool, looks like really nice car. Still remember test driving one at extreme long time ago
