Yeah ACBRON is taking the piss a bit now. I'd be keen for those ones ready now as we will all be quite low

From what he said though the handling will be bad with them as he was testing them, so he's making loads of changes again, lengthening the damper rod and going back to upright dampers (one of the reasons they looked good in the first place was inverted dampers :| ) I want to wait till he's got them sorted, but I don't want it to take another few months, I want to get my car on trackdays soon. I have got stuff to get done first but shouldn't be long.

Yeah can't beat a good memento. Don't fret for the wellbeing of NEV though, he's safe, just in storage thats all.

It's from Timmy - unsure of block code but I believe it came from a bunch of cosmo front chops he imported a while ago - ten years or so.

the words "cosmo front chops" makes me want to cry. as cool as a 20b first gen will be, its a crying shame cannibalising cosmos :(

Yeah I agree - not a lot of forethought went into the preservation of Cosmo's back then - a lot came from Malaysia I believe but he merely bought what was on offer, unsure how they came to be cut up in the first place.
