    Re: Tarmac Rally Stratos Build begins

    Oh crap. I've got two cars in a single garage. Where the hell do i put the obligatory beer fridge?
    I don't know but that's a bloody dangerous situation that you need to sort out!

    Out of interest how big is your machine shop area?
    It's a bit of a funny shape, with 1 wall on a diagonal, but it would be around the same as a 1.5 standard garage I guess

    Thanks for the tour Col. Very impressive..........beer fridge!
    No worries, was definitely the easiest video I've made, didn't have to fabricate anything and just talked tools and drank beer, pretty much a perfect Friday night!

    Next Video, with the mounts finished off in a previous video, seemed rude not to actually fit some ARB's

    When you dyno the engine try it with and without your magnificent airbox construction and see how much difference it makes; restriction versus cool air, which will win?

    - another great episode - I love the precision and the excellent fabrication work. Will you be enhancing / modifying the roof wing to direct the airflow ?

    Cheers guys

    I'll definitely give it a go, although a hot dyno room on a rolling road with no real airflow might not give a fair result, but interesting to see if there is much restriction anyway

    Will you be enhancing / modifying the roof wing to direct the airflow ?
    Yea that is something I've been giving a lot of thought about, and it is definitely on the cards (I do like the look of the air ducts as they are now though)

    Another great vid Col, thanks! Must admit I didn't understand much in the middle section, but can't wait to see your n'th number of pixel colours display operating.
    Cheers
