Thanks all, had a slight issue, filled the car with fuel and it poured out, seems some muppet work on the fuel level sender or the fuel pump and didn't reinstall it correctly.

That is not many kms at all, especial for that year. Mine is 2000 and it has about 171,xxx kms.

So, what kind of race car do you have? I am just curios.

I have a Toyota MR2 Turbo preped for the track you should be able to see it in my profile garage. Its putting out around 320 bhp, I also have a honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird which is good for 300 kmph and a 3.0L V6 Pajero for off roading.

I'm as free as a Bird, and this Bird you cannot change!!!
