    I reckon the rear bank manifold is for the dyno, not the car.

    The 6 into 1 cars sound great, but I don't associate that noise with a Stratos.
    I suppose we didn't see (and hear) continental cars back in the day?

    Having a car that refuses to pass its IVA, I don't associate any noise at all with a Stratos. Apart from maybe the sound of sobbing....

    I feel your pain. I might’ve bent my Stratos a little. New front clamshell leaving the UK late December, due downunder in February. Back on the road soon after. Don’t ask!! Just don’t touch throttle mid corner.

    Ouch! But just do what the Lancia rally team did back in the day - bomb about without the clam. Keep a torch in the car for when it gets dark.

    Yeah all good thanks. Just needs the new clam and radiator now, and a couple of aluminium panels remade under the nose. Just a shame it's going to be sitting around over our summer.
