A gedore brake line spanner size 10/11 (back of the Puma) and 8/9 (front). Also a litre of Dot 5.1 to flush and replace in the system.

I pre-ordered it in the summer because my friend owed me $5. Then I went and picked it up expecting receipt-based DLC but nope. Yeah I get 25 free cars but is it worth the $20 premium over the regular Amazon copy?

I bought myself a rather expensive Christmas gift



When I have this fitted and get a new seat plus belt (over FIA due date) I am all set for competition next year! Will probably get another Sparco Evo and some Schroth belts after saving a bit.

MSRP. Due to a series of fortunate events I managed to scrounge up $20 in Amazon discounts so that's where the figure comes from.

You still have 'till summer to prepare! Getting close to 6.5 kg/hp and seriously quick through them corners
It was quite hard to stand at the side at Forrestburn. Luckily Kames made up for it, but still I feel I must try my luck at a hillclimb. We don't even have the hills here to climb

Nothing can be done to the RX-8 engine that makes significant increase and as it runs in road class, VERY limited what can be done in reducing weight
Lucky that my insane driving manages to keep the small tuned cars at bay most of the time

Can't be the whisky bottles in the back, right. They are all empty anyway

I don't have cash, but I wanna go back and spend a long time over, circa a month. Time to spend with family, bring over friends, and see some hill climbs with all y'all!
