probably about time i did an update:

orange 5: managed to kill it hard about a month ago, so its coming back bigger and better, for 2011 its now got new engine scheme, piper 285cam, vernier and springs, adjusted timing and methanol injection, kevlar 215mm clutch and larger lightened flywheel, port matched head and manifolds, should see around 240bhp which is double standard power, oh and the latest addition.... 325mm hispecs ;)

clio: just a bit of camber, full 172 half leather and that about it

grey gtt: well its now on the road and legal, enjoying blasting about in a turbocharged gokart exactly as it was meant to be :)

r11: the latest addition... watch this space :)

and finally, the ka: well its also on the road and finished, going in for exhaust next week then its just a case of connecting up the gas and away we go :)

hey bud, i run a mix of 70% water 30% methanol in mine, to be honest it actually makes less power with the system on, but it does lower the temp of the intake charge, which reduces det, which makes it safer on big boost if that makes sense.
mine only switches on at 18psi so i dont use it for day to day running

i've got a DDS3 controller as well which is an amazing bit of kit, and if you get an aquamist definately get that to go with it :)

mark is that bronze the factory colour of your 5 ?
looks very similar to mine but mines been painted every colour under the sun in its lifetime.
from what i can see in the beginning it was a tungy!
just wondering if you had the colour code for the bronze as ill be needing paint very soon  8)

no its a custom colour, metallic orange with copper and gold pearl

cheers dude :)

raider is proving to be awesome... been driving it since 1st sept with no real issues or problems, just keeps taking the abuse that i give it.... lol

its not even that bad on fuel! i may have to sell it soon tho as i'm considering changing careers and there will be more travelling involved, hopefully not but i'll have to see how it goes  :?

not going to do much to the raider, its a bit of a work beater so dont want to end up painting it nicely or i'll be in the same boat as my orange one (eg. weekend toy) and i'd have to buy yet another car! lol
