    Heller not sending the part, despite saying they would. In the process of trying to get my money back now.

    Damn, that is a shame Ken. Not good on Heller's point, send the part or send a new kit.


    You and vehicles seem to be a thing at the mo Ken.

    This monstrous car produced 320 bhp drank 500 litres of fuel over a kilometre and only did 146.1mph I was surprised at that as my 1.4 litre Fiesta is capable of over 100 mph so for the extra 19litres the the equivalent of 15 of my Fiesta engines they only managed at best 46 extra mph, I find that astonishing.

    Hope I live upto your expectations. Been working on the suspension all night (nothing to show) boy is it challenging (lots of fiddley bits all held with screwz) you definitely need 2pairs of hands for this one, love the details of this kit.
