The time is finally here, a buyer for the 13BT setup has been sorted and deposit taken and the next incarnation of the S1 will now start to evolve.

Well, once all these pesky buses are out the way. :D

Cheers Ian - good to be back at the oily end, that setup was far too reliable. :lol:

Hi guys, hope you're all good. Nothing has changed since the last post, the S1 is still sat under cover, NEV is sat just behind her and yet another project is sat in the garage.

I'll stick it on the stable mates thread as it isn't a rotor - although Matts RX3 is next on the list to get its engine but thats another story.

So the 20B situation remains in limbo as I battle the Porsche and tickle the RX3 - but getting depressed seeing the S1 sat doing nothing so have bought a set of bridged plates from Uncle Timmy and will get him to stack me a longblock to throw in as a temporary (more than likely borderline permanent) solution. In other news, her coilovers have arrived in a shipment of RX3 bits to get the coupe sorted so they also need to go on.

Thanks Ian, I miss being around here so will make more of an effort to report my movements. I won't be at retrorides no,we've just had a baby here so any free time at the moment is spent cleaning up puke and sleeping. :lol:


Forgot to add that the BP will be a 13B and will be fuelled by a set of quads that Matt has started producing in Aus with R&D showing great gains - looking forward to it.
