Looking for a track project!

From my experience I think you would do best initially to prep car for reliability,cambelt,fluids etc.Get some decent road tyres ,upgrade front brakes and get loads of driving instruction wherever you compete.With a good instructor you can knock a few seconds off a lap time.Car mods give far less re...

Puma Promo Video 1997

That promotion is very similar to a cinema advert back in the '60s for the Mk3 Ford Zodiac.The theme for that being the first 100 mph Ford .Was filmed on dusty desert road slightly blurred as if the camera was struggling to keep up with the distant car.

Puma replacement..harder than you think.

359823 Reading this thread, I am a little confused as to whether it is about replacing the Puma with something cheap, or with something modern. If it is about something of a similar cost, then I agree that nothing has come close to the Puma for fun and driveability. I think the only thing missing f...
