Whilst I like side exhausts I like the cleaner appearance with the rear exit, just a pity it means I miss out on seeing the flames it chucks out

Very nice and liking the write ups when you've been out in it

I'd say enjoy the car but you already are, so keep on

What a machine! Definitely a toy but must be so worth it on a sunny day

Its definitely a toy but surprisingly comfortable. OK so no heater, screen, roof or luggage space (short of strapping stuff to the rollbar etc limit its appeal but the builder took it to the Ring and Le Mans several times - in fact over 50% of the miles its done so far (10k) have been in Europe

Always disliked the mirrors that were on it, did not look great and had an annoying habit of folding in on themselves above a certain speed which was not particularly helpful, especially with full harnesses fitted.

Found a new pair on EBay, was sceptical of the quality for the price but actually they are extremely good - couple of fresh holes and all fitted - no idea whether these will also fold back at sped but a planned trip to North Wales next Tuesday with friends should provide the answer

Went to see this today and what a beast. Stunning quality and the sound is unreal.

Andy kindly took me for a spin and the acceleration and noise it makes is mind blowing.
