The NEW Highway Code

Posted by Kieran over on ClubCalibra, this site is really good. Way too close to reality, mind!

I can't believe I hadn't linked this before.. I must be getting old.

Please go to John's Max-boost site if you have anything Vauxhall related. It's an absolubtly wonderful site! More info than you can shake a stick at (and while I'm there... what the hell would you shake a stick at in the first place?). A top site, with top info. Visit or else.

On the flip side, if you have a Ford or a Nissan (or anything else car wise) - well, it's probably not your thing. However, beyond the LET/XE technical knowledge stored herein there are some great articles that all engine builders alike can find useful (and some resource files that are great just to read).

Go... well? Go on then!

Mmmm Corvette

I have found a place selling new Corvette C6s, on the road, for £39,950. That's good. Okay, so it's way out of my range but it's a doable target. Vauxhall are selling the new Monaro VXR (2005 model) for around £37,000. There is hardly anything in it (at that money anyway).

So I have something to work towards. Sort of.

Actually I need a garage to store something like that in (so the cats don't destroy it). For that I'd need to move. And adding £100k to my mortgage would kind of kill my dreams of a V8. Catch 22? :(

Latest Calibra update!

Yeah it's been updated again! This time the engine is done.. I mean, done. One hose and she's running. It's soooo close now! :) Have a looksee.

Funnily enough, the project is far from over (from a technical standpoint at least). She'll run but I doubt she'll be happy with a few things we've done. The fix is of course, Autronic. But that is out of my monetary reach at the moment. So.. here's hoping.
