Thats an impressive weight saving considering you have probley added 10+ KG,s of SC & CC plus all the extra water thumbsup The only weight figure ive seen for the NA is 875 KG,s but i dont know if thats a wet or dry figure ?

WOWIE, awsomely huge project to tackle Jimmy. I had no idea that you were upto all this in the last 2 months. It makes my lazy project seem ridiculously slow and I am about to go off and self-flagilate myself with shame ! I can only imagine a SC car is way better on the smaller to mid sized tracks. How do you compare to a GT3 ? Nev.

AND the Hardtop weighed 8kg!! Couldn't believe it!! Was hoping it would be less though, but as you say the SC, CC, spoiler, extra water all adds up + the Tullet system is quite heavy!!! She IS nimble though!!!!

The SC car is quick on track!! Still to fine tune my handling, but she's getting there!!

As for the GT3..... I've gone my whatever GT3's it's seen on track, but that might be down to the drivers...? Here's a vid, see for yourself :)

Lisa's away on her Hen Weekend so I got some 'me time' in today :lol:

Had some clam vents that I've been meaning to start for ages so thought I'd make a start while I had the time.

Really time consuming job this, and you've really got to concentrate!!!! Dusty as hell too!!

I don't think the price is bad at all to be fair!! OK the product is the top of the price scale; Nitron often are, but you never read any 'my Nitron's have fallen apart' threads like you do with Gaz, Spitfire etc.... The full Spitfire kit came in over £500 if I remember correctly, and that was made up of cheap joints that caused untold grief to a good many of our members!! Every Spitfire owner I know who pushed HARD on track had issues! MAXR told me it'd cost him over a grand in geo's alone as he went through around 3 sets of links! All well and good for Spitfire to replace the links, but do they then pay for your geo to be re-done...? NO. Chris Randall has been running the Hofmann's Europa on this kit all season with no bother so it's tried and tested in my eyes!!!

Yeah, I just like the sound of the Ti bits more :P Have you seen the way they've threaded the main bar...? 2 right hand threads with differing pitch instead of 1 right and one left hand thread. So precise with the adjustment!!!! Very clever!

So they do a specific version for the VX ..?? because it's not only the difference of the "conical/cylindric" shape at the outer junction but also the fact that a specific stainless bracket to attach to the chassis is needed.

Yes they had my car for the two months developing the kit for a specific fit to the VX220. It really is a lovely bit of kit!
