I've got a few things planned for my VXT so thought I would start a sort of photo journal.

 

Here is the most recent photo, with the new "Robin" splitter:

I'll be watching this with interest as we wondered what our car would look like with all the silver changed to black. More pics needed :D

 

Looking good thumbsup

Thanks for the positive comments.  Actually, that splitter looks massive in the photo, I think it is a bit of an optical illusion.

 

My car is mostly a track day toy, I'm not sure if the splitter will provide down force or if it is a bit of an aesthetic improvement.  In the words of Colin Chapman "if it looks right, it usually is".   He was fairly good at making fast cars so that will do me. :D

I had a great day today at Cadwell, such an amazing circuit.  Here are a few quick pics.

 

 

 

This is the tightest corner I have ever had to negotiate on a track.  You can see all of the flab from the right side of my face pooling in the left:

This is a good one of the VX flying up "the mountain":

This last one is from a nice angle:

I have more photos and videos, I'll put them up when I get a chance.

I love Cadwell too! Looking good...some hard cornering!!!

 

I still think the NA headlights look better on a Moonland.

The weather couldn't have been better.  The track............was incredible!!!!!!!!!  I spent the first hour or so making a right arse of it then slowly but surely it seemed to come together.  Very, VERY difficult circuit to get to grips with.  Luckily didn't need the towing eye LOL (shame as I have 2 now :) )

John, I'm so glad I bought the VX, it just amazes me more and more.  I'm not sure I did it justice this time round, Cadwell is very technical.........oh well.........I'll have to go back and try again then!

I had fun, don't think my instructor did.  I'm not sure if he let a little bit of sick out through the gooseneck. :(

Nice pics Tomo. I did my second race there when I had my MGB GT. Brilliant circuit and quite easy to get wrong and make a mess of things.
