I would love to have the time (and skills) to build my new car and engine from scratch as it is costing an arm and a leg and half a bollock. But the truth is that I just don't have the time, I havnt done any work on the old car all year and I don't know about you but I don't feel comfortable climbing into a car that hasn't been looked over since its last race. That is why I came to the conclusion to get a brand new car and engine professionaly built by a race team and they will look after it throughout the season. It's costing me more but it should be conciderably faster than the Tiger. Who cheque book racing is alive and well Very Happy

Ok before I reveal all can you guess the engine and chassis combo, if I am correct I think it is a path that hasn't been walked down before Cool I will give you a big clue the engine is very light but has more cylinders than I am used to ?? And the chassis is alot lighter than the Lardy Tiger!

Any ideas?

They don't make the Robin hood 2B anymore and also quite a step back from the Tiger don't you think?, I said it was a new engine and chassis combo, the atom thing has been done before. Engine in the right place though not bad for a 1st effort..... try again.
