    It's all about minimizing unsprung weight. Please describe how fluid is "sloshing". Foaming is caused by cavitation and heat.

    I'll echo Croc's comments about S3 vs SV vs CSR. On the same day at the same race-track in competition, a CSR is far more composed than an R500 Duratec, at similar lap-times. I believe that the...

    That would seem to be a very unique combination of cars. Unbelievably, I know someone else who owns a Samurai, an M400, and an S1.

    Toe is not the problem. With MikeM's car, it involves caster, and the fact that he has an "Autocross" steering rack fitted. It is a super-quick ratio, so mechanical advantage is much lower. I've...

    The engines are purchased and imported separately, but associated with the kit - not individually available.

    If you are looking for a new Duratec build, we'd be happy to help.

    This *KIT* is now on the ground, and remains available. Embarrassingly, the original documentation on this order erroneously referred to it as a "roller", hence the confusion. This is...
