Re: 23/03 at the plex

Might come down as a spec again , would love to test my mods and stealth
(base tune)on the track (BA XR8), but I lack the confidence.
But good on you guys for doing the hard yards while we sit back and take notes, Ive learnt alot from you guys and the forums.

Re: 23/03 at the plex

35- that mean you probably wont be running matt?

would love to go myself, just not too confident in the noise the new motor is producing- they fixed it and now it's back, which i don't like......

anyway, will see, would really love too though (have to get a helmet too)

Re: 23/03 at the plex

seriously debating spending the extra to get it done locally rather than let ford "have a good ol go" at her yet again.

had enough- send it to the professionals and pay them to do it- what good is warranty when they can't fix anything? just repair it to last long enough that warranty won't see it again. sorry guys, just at my wits end......
