got a few pics of my car sunday at world series renault, i was parked on the collectors area. also have to say the car performed faultless on a 200 mile round trip and it was driven rather spirited at times and showed quite a few cars that the gtt is still very much alive haha, got alot of respect off other drivers giving me thumbs up etc





also bought new air filter to replace the pipercross viper which is now for sale

Hi could you tell me is the gt motorsport the one near Newark? I want to get mine in to get it set up and I need it to be relatively close. Prima sport is not too far from me but if this is Newark that's not far either.

Hi Blunty

Would of like to have caught up with you at WSR but as you have probably seen i didnt quite make it lol.

How do you find the .63 rear on the t28? also what is your vernier set at.

I have a .47 on mine at the mo but also have a .48 and a .63 rear which i could try but need machining out.

Hi mate i havent seen why you didnt make it? Hope all is well.
The. 63 rear works very well it pulls hard all the way to 7k even with the little t2 turbine wheel still in there they are actually very similar in size to a. 49 t25 housing . What turbo are you using then a t25/t2?.
Am not sure what the cam is set to but ill find out asap for you.

Remember to give me a shout if you want any turbo work doing.

Ive got a T28 with the T25 size turbine wheel, it originally had a .35 rear which was restrictive as hell!!

Have a look on "Your cars" for my post, managed to melt a piston on the way back from WSR

little update

turbo is now removed from my car and off to have the new turbine wheel machined into the .63 t2 housing and its not a t25 tomcat turbine im going for, decided to go for a pulsar turbine ;)

also a bloody brand new wheel bearing gave up on me after only 225-230 miles so mike (gt turbo spares) is sorting me one for half price which is a great gesture by him

oh and last but not least iv invested in a 2nd set of wheels, 15" oz superturismos complete with tyres for 150, yes they are a bit tatty but thats no bother as they will be powdercoated in black :)
