Isn't that the guy that had his BMW M2 taken back by BMW for modding it while on the finance?

Channel owner yes, not the exige owner.

From what i get, your work on k-series and pushing the bounderies is highly appreciated.

It was only the safety decisions on your own car that was frowned upon.

Its been an interesting development path, everything that would seem to make sense to try seems to work, and on the other side the components i didnt think would hold the power have been more than up to the job, for example the headgasket and headbolts, I cant lift the head at 42psi of boost.

 

Ive never claimed the issues with whats happened to my car to be anything other that my fault, I built it so I take responsibility, my only gripe is people assume was that failures I have were down to the exhaust placement when they havent been, if they were I would have changed the setup as its only welding up some pipework.

 

New engine is an evolution of the last one

for the moment its road use and quarter mile stuff, maybe have a go at the 1/2 mile events that are popping up, though in its current form im not sure what stability is like at 150mph+ as ive only taken it close to that and it felt pretty stable.

 

I may go back to the circuit at some point, ive kept all my aero components, but i would probably run a lesser aero package thats more streetable, as I do enjoy driving it on the road verses just saving it for circuit as i get alot more seat time and can get used to the power, which when your getting to 1000bhp/ton, its not something you want to just use 3-4times a year as its more scary than fun.
