Re: 3SGTE engine rebuild - recommended workshops

Id recommend predator performance or for a bit more money Rogue.

Predator done the initial rebuild although i had a few problems the engine ran brilliant before i totalled the car.
Rogue also know their stuff if you want a no hassle remedy. The problem being you pay for that sort of service.

Re: Markstevieandmads Budget Turbo Project: PART TWO

So sorry to read this but I'm glad you walked away from the accident. We have very similar setups and funnily enough I'm due to get to married in Aug. I'm impressed you were 2nd in the RWD Cat. That gives me confidence with running mine at an event. (Something I've never done before) Would you blam...

Re: Markstevieandmads Budget Turbo Project: PART TWO

THE UNFORTUNATE ENDING: So off to Japfest 2019 we went. Car was running great and i decided to do the unlimited sprint runs. After 4 runs I was 2nd in the RWD class and 7th overall out of 160 odd cars. 1st in the RWD class was a MX5 turbo and he was also in front of me in the queue. So i was to give...

Meeting point

I cant seem to find any meeting points for our clubs so propose to setup a meet beforehand at tesco superstore, oxford rd, brackley (nn13 7ef) Gates open at 7am and have to be on stand for 9.30am so what about meet at the above at 7.30am to leave at 7.45am? This should be on route for most from the ...

Re: Club ticket details!

B22 is for the sprint test. T11 is for the stand. Nothing myself or Scott can do, best thing to do would be to call Japfest to clarify and if there is a problem they can issue you a new pass, as futhermucker250 did. Ok cheers Just looking and i got 2 club stand vehicle passes - both say t11 with on...
