Typhoon Number Two

I had to drop the Grey Ghost at the dealers again today because the clutch was getting a little tight in 1st and reverse and the new FIX one is due very very soon, so I'm back in the courtesy Vixen GT.
Anyway my business partner in Qld has been hassling me about getting an FPV done up for him, he wanted a GT until he went in the pre edit version of the Ghost. So when the clutch is done by FPV the injectors and edit will go back in and off it goes to Qld .
I got an itchy signing hand for another car and I was going to go the series 2 GT, but the realisable potential of an edited Typhoon has killed that idea so I am ready to grab Typhoon number 2
Velocity
Brembos
Factory Roof
FPV Wheel
A smidgin over 70k on the road, at last one I want, not just off the shelf. I think with the capability these cars have with a few tweaks BREMBO'S are a must have, now I just have to wait for the clutch on the ghost to be fixed and things will get real interesting

Good colour choice Doc. My girl is velocity and she looks even better in the flesh than the colour pic. I have so far been spared the "clutch" problems ... so far..... but boy from what you have been saying, once she gets the permanent fix I think I will be knocking on Simon's door.

I now have 12k on her and have really noticed an improvment in her acceleration (measured by the bum-o-meter) I am not too sure if its because she is starting to loosen up or I am starting to learn how to drive her.... in stock form I have found there is not much to be gained in waiting for the chimes before up shifting..... more like around 5,000 then kick her up..... so much torque from low down in the range she just keeps pulling.

She puts a smile on me dial everytime.... bloody hell after Simon's tune ....it'll probably make me crack a fat everytime I give her a burst

good choice these typhoons do have potential

cheers
