    If you’ve read more than a few of my updates, you’ll know by now that I enjoy a roadtrip. So with the Cossie running spot on it was time to finally do one of my favourite things. Head for Europe!…

    Rubber Up!

    5th January 2017

    A blast across Europe is imminently on the cards, but a stupidly busy month shooting all over the UK meant that I didn’t get much time to work on many of my intended Cossie plans. But fear not, it hasn’t…

    Crail drag strip!

    5th January 2017

    After last month’s live mapping session at MSD the Cossie was running better than ever. 340bhp & 400lb/ft made for a hefty punch in the back when the boost kicked in. So much so that the day was stopped due…

    Go Faster Goodies!

    5th January 2017

    The plan this month was to get the new Irmler split rims rubbered up and fitted, but I’ve been distracted with go faster stuff as you can see. First of all the T34 started showing evidence of wear, so sending…

    Little Tweaks…

    5th January 2017

    This month I’ve been stocking up on various goodies from Motorsport Developments in preparation for the Cossie’s return trip to Blackpool. A new -34 actuator will allow for much more stable boost due to the boost controller not having to…

    For once the Cossie hasn’t been taken apart or had anything added this month, it’s just been getting used! Yes I was pretty fed up with the frustration of parking it up last winter, so this year it’s been used…

    The German trip may have been great, but there’s no denying that I was pissed off at not being able to take the Cossie! So it was straight to work when home. First thing was to get my new AEM…

    Roadtrip!

    5th January 2017

    After upgrading and servicing way more than I thought was necessary, I was finally satisfied that the Cossie was all good for the German trip. So on the day before the ferry I was happily bombing around when I noticed…

    On Fire!

    5th January 2017

    Nearing my planned trip to the Nürburgring the Cossie required a proving session, so I booked on to an SXOC drift day at Crail Raceway’s large track. The perfect place to put two of the most recent mods to the…

    Under Pressure

    5th January 2017

    Recently the Saph took a thrashing quite happily around the track at Driftland after having its recently rebuilt CR Turbos T34 fitted. This all went well, but afterwards the manual boost controller started allowing the peak pressure hit 30psi instead…
