    This old thread keeps getting brought up. Very kind of you guys.
    I’ve been using the car for a few years now and had a few ups and downs.
    Still got an off idle issue that’s fighting me, sometimes too rich, sometimes too lean, but still working on it.
    Ran it at the strip, but hot weather and fuel pump issue meant a 14.5 was the best time I could get.
    Gear box took a dump on me. Those really expensive straight cut gears peeled open and exited through the bottom of the case. Still, it was a lovely place to break down.

    Since that happened, I have now rebuilt the chassis for a T5z. I’ll try not to break it.
    Pete.
