yeah that CCS kit just isn't going to fit to the front. We really need to create something for the Exas...

I understand the need for conformity. Without a concise set of rules to follow we would probably all have to resort to common sense.

Damn, that's tidy... I reckon the rear bar's fucken sweet, you just need to cut a bit more room for your exhaust.

And you might wanna try what I've been dreaming about; mod the support brackets to make it sit flush and shorten the sides. You'd also need to light your plate differently.

Can't wait to see it with the sexeh new rims...

Oh yeah, I remember this dude Howard Astill had an insanely tidy XA four-door with shaved handles; he used the old-school push-down door locking buttons on the exterior to open the doors.

I don't mind the rear bar, but something needs to happen around where the muffler pokes out.

Do you want some series II Exa tail lights?

yeah i had fun, was my first time out.

my best was a snail paced 15.60 @ 115kph

was hoping for a bit better, i thought it had the potential for a low 14

but i still havnt had the microtech tuned since its been back on the road, and my boost controller didnt do a very good job either, i had fun tho which is the main thing i guess

my bro has raised the bar to 12.64 @ 135kph,........ bastard

12.64 @ 83mph.....

mustve been a good effing launch because 83mph (135kph) indicates 14s..

put sum 10mm top gun leads on so there is a bit more bite when i get her tunned

Awesome stuff Kane, those wheels will finish it off on the outside I reckon!
All those engine goodies should give her some poke too!
You keen for another cruise/strip run mid year? Say end of July? Didn't get much of a chance to talk to you or anyone last time, I won't be so rushed next time!
