could also have cut corners on the machining, then the engine might have suffered a mechanical failure during the standing mile runs when I was using lots of nitrous, 2 x 10lb bottles only lasted 90 secs, enough for 3 each way runs, but instead I have a very reliable tuned engine with excellent longevity (60K+ miles) that is still much quicker than others. Over-engineering is not crime, why do I run fully-spherical bearing suspension? because I like my car to handle in a predictable manner and also because i can.

Nice piece of engineering my friend!! Well thought out..designed for a purpose. Bit of a Wolf in sheeps clothing, hidden away in a humble escort shell!! Nice work, sounds like your the type of Guy, that needs a project on the go, mind that never rests, always thinking, creating, designing, adjusting, tweaking & modifying!! Well thats what mines like anyway!! What are the seats that are in the picture? Are they a fibreglass shell? Any MOT or Insurance issues with them? I have full leather ones in my van & they weigh a ton!! regards Dyl

Seats in the Photos are just Cobra Sidewinders on tailored sub-frames, they adjust/recline/tip forward just like the ford originals, so no MOT issues, rear seats and seatbelts are removed anyways. steel framed with ABS back-shell, on trackdays, I remove the Sidewinders and replace the Driver's seat with a Cobra Imola Pro-Fit Carbon Seat on custom modified Cobra side mounts, Luke Pro 4 Point (75mm/75mm) Saloon Harness Belts.
