(Curious as to where the exhaust tip is now)

Guys, We all have opinions, but can we keep it friendly. I've been asked to remove thread, but for now it can stay, however I will keep an eye on it. Lee

Still cooking passing pedestrians by the look of it, although there is also something tailpipe like to the left of the rear diffuser.

Reason why he wants to do world time attack is because he wants perfect conditions and no rain. :/

 

Yeah I was reading a thread last night and he mentions not being able to turn the tyres on in the UK.... bit weird as you'd think all that aero would help! 

 

 

Link please!

Looks to me like someone dropped a truck on an Exige and that's whats left!

Did he get styling cues from Nev?

It was on his personal Facebook page in the comments section to the just giving page, seem to have been deleted now... It basically just said that he'd been talking to the tyre supplier about the operating temperatures of the semi slick tyres he's using, can't remember the exact conversation now. 

 

Quite an interesting photo of the bay!

Oh my, turbotoaster, or as we called him on the rx7 forum, turbo to&&er, infamous on the net.

 

He joined the rx7 forum and proceeded to tell everyone he was going to build an rx7 and hit 200mph for under 10k, when the rotary specialists (along with everyone else) told him it just wasnt feasible he told them they had no clue what they were talking about and had no clue about rotary engines, he also ripped a few traders and members off , oh and he subsequently crashed said rx7 before he even started his project.

 

For those that "defend" his actions, perhaps you should dig a little deeper and speak to people who have actually had dealings with him, he is well known on many forums, overclockers, pistonheads, fd.org etc etc

Is that the aero all designed on a fag packet, by the magic of "theory"

Struggling to get heat into a Trofeo R or a semi slick seems very strange on that car. Even stranger is going to another country to find hot weather when you're not making your car work at home.

 

I've heard alot about this guy from alot of people but the main thing I've noticed is he blames alot of stuff on other people. I think someone needs to remind him that if everyone hates you you're most likely the arse hole.

Fair enough, I don't know anything about him personally just the project. 

 

I was defending the concept not the bloke. :) 

 

Should be interesting to see how things turn out anyway!
