She`s nearly ready...again!!

After a winter of modding galore the new engine is back and now in.

Off upto MAC#1 for the Emerald wiring in next week.

Fingers crossed for 250bhp+ at the rolling road week after.

Hi Rob,

Are you Local to Blyton?

Im only about 1 hr away and as yet have not met up with any other Tigers.

I'm Thinking about running at Harewood Hill climb later in the year.

Just like Joe I would need 100+ hp to be anywhere near you!!!

Dan





There is no such thing as a stupid question.

Just the ones I ask!

Hi Dan,

i`m guessing your the same Dan off Tiger Owners site that i spoke to about meeting at Fox House/Sheffield?

If so then you`ll know i live in Sheffield so 10-15 mins away from you.

I`m off to Blyton on the 21st April if you want to meet up?

My mistake.

And you are correct it is me.

We will have to see about April as its a pretty busy month!

Its running....

First start

Thanks to MAC#1 Motorsport for their efforts today.

Techincal Shopfloor Assistant(Lidster) was sacked after his attempt to sabotage my engine with his comment. Think he is just scared that i will bin him off at Blyton(again).

Rolling road early next week, progress update to follow.
