I do love that RED!
That's why you need a 2018 Heritage Edition. I believe it is the same red.

Looking good and very stable into festival. Making all the right sounds too!
Thanks , Jeff , just had some brake balance issues which we have sorted out , it turns in really nice and the traction off corners is very good.
Gearing is good for the Festival configuration but we will have to change it to run without the Festival .
Motor pulls nicely to 7500 rpm and the flat shift works really nice.

You have obviously been very busy. Unreal amount of custom part fabrication. Looking forward to seeing the finished product and it on the track. Will you take it over to the new course on Vancouver Island?
There's a 2nd new track in s.e. B.C., Area 27, south of Penticton. Should be open shortly. I stopped there last month on 2nd day of paving.

Looks to be a Racers race track, rather than a car club cc track. Hope to visit the Island track and see friends in Victoria right after I get back from Rally 11.

Am I right in thinking the floor panels on the Matech cars are flat? - the ones in the road car are dimpled and made from two layers of hydro formed aluminium sheet.
