Fancied a cheap track toy and always wanted this car when a mate of mine had it but lost out, when it came up for sale again I didn't think twice and snapped it up. The previous owner had a 'Honda specialist' try and fit and map the car on itb's on a chipped ecu... it did run but ran like **** so I fitted an Emerald standalone ecu, mot next week :)

Not much progress on this except I tidied up the battery fixing which is now mounted in the boot and made this little bracket, I've mounted this under the mechanical clutch and enables me to flat shift :)

Decided to upgrade the radiator, the metro one was ok but the fan came on after pushing it on the road so may not be good enough for the track, also I wanted better access and room for the turbo if I go that route.
