Re: New to the forum
I starting staging rally a few years ago wuth a Talbot Sunbeam. Blew the engine up and then spent over £10,000 on a 2litre 16v Vauxhall engine and then got fed upwith repairing chassis rails after every little knock.
I drove my brother ex police T5 S70 and was impressed with the whole car. I then decided to build a tarmac stage car using a 149,000 mile ex police T5. It took about 6 months to build, but still needs developement.
It has a weld in triangulated cage, all stripped interior, Leda adjustable suspension (this is the dogs, the best suspension about for not much money) and a chip remap. it has a moderate LSD which is the best thing on the car. It's suprising how good it puts all (bear ni mind I have to use a turbo intake restrictor to meet regs) 275BHP down, even in the wet. Although I use moulded slick tyres. best result to date is 9th overal with the top five cars being ex works WRC etc. I beat every scooby and cosworth (that felt good!). i'll keep you post with future events. It does sound like a UR Quattro when on full boost (1.25 bar)
