    I've spun off (twice) there, on that weird blind lefthander the opposite site to quarry - there's a connecting road that fools you into thinking it's straight on, then you realise it's left - lift, turn, spin - oops. Nothing hard to hit:clapping:

    Spent a lot of time at Combe on motorbikes.
    Seen a few cars go in backwards at Quarry, it’s generally the corner that’s going to bite.

    A mate had a supercharged Hyabusa powered 7 that he put into the wall at Quarry.

    please don't stop posting, it would make a good rebuild thread.

    Technically mine isn't a kit as I made the chassis, wishbones, rear uprights and basically anything fabricated out of metal.
    The only thing I bought from the kit car manufacturer is the glass fibre bodywork and even then I have had to modify it to make it fit better.( the bodywork doesn't even fit their chassis correctly!)

    Still to make:

    Inlet manifold
    Throttle bodies
    Aluminium fuel tank
    Roll bar
    Exhaust headers
    Windscreen surround
    Dash

    They are known as scratch builds. The Ron Champion book published about 20 years ago started the trend with the "Locost 7" based on the MK2 Escort running gear. As these cars became rare there were a couple of books published using Sierra parts including the Tiger Avon which mine is based on.
    IVA is not a massive problem as you can download the manual for free.
