I think its the angle the photo was taken but if it is too big im sure the wind will rip it off at speed or it will act as an air brake. :lol:
The gilmer drive is apparantly the last black one extreme rotaries had as they are only going to be selling silver from now on, there cutting there list of products down. You cant beat the noise of a gilmer drive either 8-)

    Bit of an update with a few bits and bobs that have been done over last couple of weeks.

    Fitted a new back box, always wanted one of these and now i have one. Its a tad loud. :D

    Its been made so that the original back box that was on it can be swapped back over quick and easy if i start going deaf.

    Bit of a video of it running, sound quality not the best as it was my phone but you get the idea.

    Image

    Only 2 pics i have from retro car mania at Weston park, as usual everybody more interested in rusty shite dropped on there arse and a bloody vespa that decided to park between me and the car next to me and even caught somebody leaning against my car to get a snap shot of said vespa. Arseholes. :x :x :x
    Wasn't till i started the car to go home early that it was like flies round shit and i couldnt move for the amount of people around the car.
