    I think it was closed and possibly deleted not 100% though.

    iirc he had it closed/deleted due to all the nit picking that goes on when armchair experts start criticising someone who's actually having a go.

    I could be wrong though.

    That's a shame. Did it ever run in RWD?

    last i remember it needed something doing to the brakes, but yeah the RWD conversion was completed successfully. Hoping to catch it at the shows next yeah, should be an awesome car.

    Might be an idea to have it line up on the strip against RC's RWD Astra at PV if that's started/finished in time.

    At the end of the pics the engine is mounted normally instead of the rwd way earlier on in the pics? me confused lmao.
    When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.
