and there doesnt appear to be any action shots at the creek. Lots of lean into Turn 2 at WP though. Looking good Jimmy. top time. !

Now do it officially and sign up for a supersprint.

That front bar can't be doing you any favors :shock:

Looks like a hell of a lot of fun, get some video next time!

I'm sure your new 4.44 crown wheel is helping you pull out of the corners a lot better.

That front bar has been thru alot. LOL. I've smashed it a few times repaired it, smashed it again. I just love the look of the aero front bar, suits the swift so nice.


Will put stock one back on and repair it again.

Hmm not sure about the look :? but I think it's definitely going to help, it sit's nice and low, it's stopping a lot of air from going under the car and causing lift, how far back underneath does the bottom lip extend? got a link to the supplier?

The aero does look better than alot of other aftermarket front bars but I still find it a little busy and no mounting for foggies unfortantly.

Great pics fatboy and top effort mate! Car looks pretty good out there :) What swaybars are you running? Infact you got a thread which details your mods, interesting.

Lets just say its the ultimate sleeper. Shitbox on the outside. Dodgy interior (Jimmy I saw your car dont deny it ;) )
Complemented by quality suspension, lsd, big brakes, stiffened chassis due to halfcage and strut braces and most importantly lots and lots of track time. Practice DOES make a huge difference as does the want to go fast and learn.


Jimmy what did I miss ?

I refer to your more recent pics, specially the 1st on this thread. lol.
I respect mechanical condition more then the outside looks.

Your times prove that driver ability and mechanical setup give quick laptimes.
