  1. Don't worry about that, you did bloody well for a first timer. There's a few familiar names on that list, run some of them through this site and you'll see they have form... https://www.ewrc-results.com/search/ https://www.ewrc-results.com/profile/16495-tom-hynd/
  2. I was aware of this rally but was on a night out on Saturday so couldn't attend. A friend of mine is an ex driver/navigator so we plan on taking part at some point this year. I used to do this in the late 90s and can agree how much of a buzz you get. Yes, the event is planned around an average speed of 30 mph but if you have 10 miles to do in 20 minutes that's all well and good. If you spend 15 minutes working out the clues then progress has to be made 👀 Weapons of choice back in the day were a MK2 Golf, my 205 1.9 GTi and my mates Puma. All absolutely perfect for the task of hustling down country lanes. I was a much better driver than navigator but I was a very average driver at best. The Kangoo would be perfect for this but I'd probably do the first event in the Focus with some driver aids to give myself a chance 👀🫣
  3. These are decent cars, I was surprised how good the one I had was. I'd not be too worried about the thermostat until you've done a decent drive in it, modrin diesels taking a while to heat up and all that
  4. I'd get the plugas/MAPP gas out and see if you can free off things yourself before throwing cash at it. I've no idea of the setup on the rear of these and the chances of shearing off something expensive but the tierods are worth a try.
  5. Smoll update. 911s engine has been built so it was time to ship the car down to them for installation and fettling. I paid a man to do it, it was actually cheaper than it would have cost me by the time I'd rented a trailer, paid for fuel for the Jeep and Tebay pies I'm kind of a big deal, only personalised trailers for my shite. The Manta is coming on too. @GingerNuttzis busy getting the body ready for the 400 kit. And I decided to sack off the Corsa VXR seats I'd bought for it-they were heavy and were going to be awkward to fit. It's getting more like a rally car so might as well have some proper buckets. I ordered up weld in seat rails which were of course the wrong size. I've got that sorted now so next up is seat fitting. We're moving house in May. Here's what you need to know about the new house. I can't wait to be able to fettle shite indoors
  6. 100% agree. Here's my Kangoo Genuine Momo from an Integrale apparently 😳 It now has the correct Momo horn push.
  7. My Kangoo is with him just now, hope your Clio doesn't give it a dose👀 Top work on the w(s)124, I do love them.
  8. Nah, they're not that bad. I used to tow an auto test car around behind one. Slowly, but capably.
  9. For those of you who don't get the above reference this man is truly a hero of our times. https://www.facebook.com/share/r/X2Wo22bsbrtC3Gp5/
  10. Some cars can just be a cunt to bleed. The steep slope thing is a good idea. You live on a farm, you have an E36. You're practically Donkey262. Get the front o the hoor lifted right up tae fuck wi the loader and rev the tits clean aff it. Other opinions are available
  11. I've had success before with bleeding things by just fucking driving them and extending them gently through the rev range. But only for a short drive and only as a last resort. I'd try 320tourings ideas first though

    A Quick Hello

    How very dare you! Clio indeed, pfft. Welcome @Alan G That Volvo is right up my street! I did think about doing something silly/sillier with the Kangoo and a turbo but I love it just the way it is.
