For the first time in nearly 2 months I had a chance to take Gus out for a run on some dry roads today.... great to get out down the lanes

Took Gus to Really Retro 2019 today.... a good show, much better than the last time I went. He attracted plenty of positive comments and attention.

Looks a good mix of cars there Ian, Gus really stands out in a crowd. Do you find the Red Stripe helps the handling as well as the top speed?

definitely Pete, the way it channels the air along the sides of the car greatly enhances stability... these days everyone fits polybushes and coilovers but Dave was ahead of the game with the red stripe.

Looks very nice Ian! Shame I didn't make it up to that one. Looks like there was a pretty good variety of cars :D . I saw that FD recently at the Dyno Torque meet. The owner was a really nice guy. That car is pushing some very impressive power figures :shock: . I'm sure he said Tim (RX Motors) built the engine
