Sorry Tony Wont be able to make it now :crybaby:
Cooked my engine and wont be able to transplant in time :no:
Gutted ive only done one KR this year and also that my engine is dead :crybaby:

Could be a V6 for next year though ;)
My Son want's me to go Turbo , but I really fancy V6 , as it's my daily and can't see the point of rebuilding the N/A when a V6 swap is probably cheaper !
Sorry to hear that dude, hopefully you can get it sorted out pretty quickly.

My money is on a V6 as well :D

I think it’s going to be V6 and I am looking at Chris Woods kit !
God knows how mine let go , but need to find out before I fit another Engine , It happened last week on my day off went on a shopping trip with the wife about 70 mile round trip no problem at all checked oil before we left , came home for a cuppa then popped to my wife’s shop in the next village about 1.5 miles and while waiting for her the temp gauge started to rise , turned her off let her cool down then limped her home with blue smoke when pulling away, started her up yesterday and seemed fine until warm then the smoke and pressure build up in the cooling system , gutted although I have wanted a V6 transplant for a while . My Son wants me to Turbo it but as it’s my daily I think V6 is the better option .
MK2 3sge Uk sold.
MK3 Chilli red sold.
MK2 Smg Gltd Super Edition now with V6

Sorry for your car troubles mate, it's happened to all of us at some point. I've started looking at 2grs recently as prices of rx350s are starting to come down.

Yes Matt. We'll take a 3VZ Merrari along. Will be a good addition to the already interesting MR2 variations we currently have. Andy

However whether you will get the chance to let it loose on a KR in 2019 is something else.
Guess I'll put my name forward for future organisation of KR's. Cant let it die out now can we. Especially when we have such a great crew. It's my fave thing to do every summer. Andy.

Guys, please let me know by Thursday 27th whether or not you will be participating.
I need to confirm table numbers with the cafe.

Format is a dawn start *, a drive of around 100 miles with a photo stop en route, finish at a cafe for breakfast.

* for timing: not necessarily indicative of the location.

Geo done, all good on paper but not had a proper test drive by me other than alignment shop to home.

Mechanic who road tested it was impressed with it though, and with the place being a Lotus specialist that's quite a compliment!

I'm in, providing I don't contract whatever horrible illness every "censored" at work is passing around at the moment :ranting1:

Maybe because for some it's the last chance saloon if they can't do the final round at the end of next month?
Saw your chariot at Patrick's last week. Hopefully it will be fixed by then.

Btw, it was 10 yesterday. :) Unfortunately, Woody is now unable to make it. :no:

@ Gazza, thanks for the update: tbc status removed. :th:

Just waiting on Dan now...

Provisional Yes. On the condition that my car is still on the road. Also planning to go to oh so retro after.

@ Jimb, I sent you a PM. Please check your Inbox!
