That sounds like a good plan man. I was almost convinced (by Colza) to change to a d16 for my car, but then I took his T2 for a drive and fell in love with the city motor again, what I love about it is that you can drive in a fun way, anywhere. Boosting up, spinning the wheels a bit or whatever is always fun, where with a high revving engine its really pretty limited in how much fun you can have on the roads, although its more suited tot he track than the low revving city motor.

The solution is two quick change motors running off two different ecu chips :P :P. Actually, that could be done.....

well it has been a long time since i posted here and believe it or not progress has been made albeit slow,the pinholes in the fibreglass are killing me i must have done the ones in the doors 5times each door and primed again and ime still finding a few here and there aaarrrrggghhhh!!!! ime hoping to get the doors sorted over the weekend and think about painting real soon but time is an issue at the moment as i am looking to find a house to purchase and working on my 4wd amongst other things ile update again when something actually happens.

Man, I am considering the same stuff. In the last few years Ive changed from unlimited time no money, to decent money and no time :roll:

Awesome to see some progress, I havn't forgotten about your suspension! When I make the stuff for mine, I am going to do yours, craybaits, and Glens at the same time, Im moving houses (again) in about 5 weeks and my car will be driving by then, because I am not trailering/towing it for a 3rd time.

Impressed with the look of the car,it helps me see someone winning with a city,as they seem to be a step forward then some new problem.
Look forward to seeing the finished product soon
