the front will drop after a few laps around the block, they always sit high at the front when no weight has been on the springs for a while ;)

...sorta slow motion. he leaves the seat, goes through the windscreen, headfirst straight into the tree...right. and then, bounces back through the windscreen. by the time we got to him.. he was just sittin there trying to scream with his face ripped off......whats the matter?

Thanks Dan,

Today was a move in the right direction, i had the engine running for 30 secounds after playing with the timing, so it lives, i spent the rest of the day locating the electric fuel pump, and conecting up the fuel lines, its running off the headers which can be loud, so the next move is to get it to the exhaust shop for a nice system.

Cheers

simon.
