I don't want to temp fate until I've picked it up and driving it back - sounds like it's going to be a bit mental though - can't wait :wink:

yeah, I'm a driver between the resorts and to the airports. Pays the bills, plus gives me access to the discounted lift pass... ie full season lift pass is now cheaper than a week's pass for a regular tourist...!

He, he..... Ben and all the other top blokes at the Raceshack have lovingly built me a brand spanking new 2332 Type 1 with lots of top bits in it!
It went on the dyno yesterday and is making 140bhp at the wheels and 133ft/lb 8O - which should equate to about 180-185 bhp (or in Bens words about 200 american ponies!!)
It's also had a berg shifter and some TLC to the linkage and again in Bens words "it's savage"

Picking it up tomorrow, I'll post my thoughts once I'm back (if i get back without being locked up!)
