Cheers mate
I'm not sure that the kit does anything for the handling,the coilovers changed it like night and day.
I think any aerodynamic advantage would be blown out of the equation by the vicious torque steer and wheelspin,but jeez it's fun to thrash

Hey Luke it's been a while hope you are well.
I'm on the central coast now so half the distance bring your 954 down when I get the moto for a photo shoot if you want!
Anthraxxx I can't find any pics from your link :(
Did you get it yourself or have an import company get it for you?

I killed something in the gearbox/diff yesterday :(
With a bit of luck it has just ripped all the splines off the inner cv,that's what it feels like.
Will have a look sometime this week

Guttted! Unfortunely its to be expected with the kilowatts you are cranking, fingers crossed its a minor issue.

Have always loved your car, - but even better to hear it now lives on the central coast! I'm up at Tuggerah. I've actually been restoring a supercharged AW11 for the last 3 years, getting there slowly! I have always loved T2's though. I almost bough Brendan's going back 5 or more years ago now. I still have a lot of T2 model kits and brochures in my possession (even some Mugen T2R one's). Would be great to catch up some time.

I'm in wyoming
Admittedly I just had to google image what an aw11 was,looks cool used to see a few about in Sydney.
I am to scared to drive my car much up here there's too many highway patrol cars around! Probably due to all the heroes in v6 Commodores ripping fully sick 1 wheel skids all night every time it rains.
You're welcome to come check it out some time If you like.

Hey Matt,

Sounds like an offer I can't refuse! I'm well familiar with Wyoming as I lived in Narara all my life til moving out of home. Yeah, the HWP situation isn't exactly the best around here, but I haven't really come across that much trouble to be honest. You're really only going to get hassled if you're hanging around carparks on a Thursday night with other hoons. Unfortunately the style of a T2R is always going to stand out, let alone a bright orange one, so your concerns are probably well justified! I gather it's all engineered though? (Sorry, it's been a long while since I've read every page of your build thread).
I'll get my act together soon and flick you a PM with my details.
Cheers,
Toby
