I've gone for something considerably more boring to replace it. But having owned it for nearly a month now I'm kind of infatuated with it already:

This is the sister website to Driftworks which is immensely popular and keeps the admins very busy. Also I've been a bit lazy with keeping up with the forum recently. Sorry about that.

the porsche project has been abandoned, and the bmw 635 was swapped for this mitsubishi evo 4.
the car is mildly modified at the minute, it has tein lowering springs, hks inlet filter, hks dump valve, hks hard pipes, front mount intercooler, aluminium radiator, 3inch downpipe, 3inch decat and hks exhaust, running std boost so prob around the 300bhp mark at the minute. it also came with evo 6 injectors, ecu and walbro pump which will allow the car to be remapped.
it has a load of polybushes on the rear end, and front and rear strut braces.
i have also sourced a larger turbo from an 8mr 10.5 hotside which will do 400hp with remap.
car recently had an rs gearbox fitted along with an exedy clutch, it also has brand new discs all round, redstuff pads up front, and pagid track pads on the back, still on sliding calipers!
i got the car a few weeks ago, and then proceeded to book a track day at goodwood motor circuit on the 1st december! it was a 5 car 105db day. i went along with some mates, 1 in an e46 m3, the other a fireblade caterham.
did a brake fluid change for some superblue the eve before, and gave the car a check over, all was good, so went to bed ready for an early start the next day
the car was awsome all day, and goodwood circuit is a really good fast circuit with no room for mistakes. hit around 140mph on the lavant straight, and 130mph braking into st marys. didnt get overtaken by anything and being a 5 car day was in clear air most of the time which was great!
brakes were the only thing that let the car down, i never boiled them, but pedal travel was increased and after a few laps braking performance was pretty bad causing me to carry to much speed through some of the corners.
only other downfall was fuel which i did £140 worth! but i didnt expect anything else from an evo
car drove me there and back with no issues, all in all an awsome day, and so glad i managed to actually get on track finally rather than piss about building cars from the ground up!
since the track day i have stripped the interior out to save weight, i have some sparco evo seats to fit, extinguishers, bonnet pins, cut off etc. and i also went and splashed out on some alcon 6 pot race calipers an 365mm discs!! so braking shouldnt be an issue any more!
the plan is to source some 18inch wheels to clear the calipers, and some coilovers, then its back on track in jan!
oh and of course a weld in cage to go in possibly over xmas if i get time!!
will add pics up over the next few days, look forward to seeing some of you on track next year!
