4. buy a * Rev Guage, Oil Preasure, Water Temp Guage

thats old oil lordy .. Wink can tell your vision has perished with your age :L as the oil clearly doesnt look fresh ...

main objective this season is to get it handling properly and behind the scenes build a decent engine Smile

Hey Josh whats with the age'st jibes , ok i'll let yer have the old oil thing and I can see that you've got the Krypton factor shocks..fully adjustable damping .. here is a way of stealing the length of the straight .....you say attention to detail,look at the discs can you see the edge that's rusty and unused this can be machined off the disc about 1/8"-1/4" can be machined off the diam.then have the discs scimmed and cross drilled, this will save some of the un-sprung weight ... helping with 0-60 times braking and cornering...you might think this is to much work but this might make you a 1/10 sec per corner difference x 4 per lap x 12 laps in a race thats 4.8 seconds per race thats almost the length of the straight-away at 50 mph....!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks are not needed, all part of "Team Lordy" racing secrets!
