Author: Subject: Mac#1 ZX10R Worx - My first ever build

Castle Combe - my first non airfield day, so should be good.

I drove back from Betws-y-Coed down the A5 yesterday in my Seat and have been around a few roads up there, it's great fun. I might be bringing the kit up that way for a few days before an Anglesey day in September. I'll give you a shout if you fancy a bit of a run out, or even better get the day booked...

Paperwork been sent of and car being re-prepped for the road rather than the IVA. Hoping to get it in next few weeks.

castle combe is good
Only done 15 minute sessions in my road car but is a great track.
what diff are you running? If its a 3.62 I think you'll be hitting your limiter in 6th gear though.

No idea why if I am honest. I'm just totally fed up with the whole thing!! Just got no love for the car right now as every time it comes up in conversation with friends asking me if its done, its just depressing to tell them "no".

Well here we are now in February and lone behold, still no car!! I have been trying to call Mac#1 for the last 2 months and they never answer the phone. They also dont reply to emails that I have sent. Nor to the messages I have resorted to sending to them through ebay. I have had to drive down there twice in the last 2 months just so I can ask what is happening. Its a fecking joke!!

Looks like it will have to be yet another waste of 3 hours of my time to go see whats happening

Not good at all! Could you not bring the car back and IVA it yourself or get another company to go it? Or have you already paid mac to do it?

Go down with a trailer and pick the car up.
Finish the process yourself or take the car to Danny at MK and let him finish it for you.
I would take a loss on whatever money you've already spent upfront with Mac1 or pursue them through the small claims court.
Your patience is admirable but it's now beginning to look like you're being walked over..

It passed IVA last July. Mach#1 have had it for the last 7 months "prepping" it for the road Whatever that means?
I drove mine on the road after IVA, while fiddling with it, if it passed IVA it's road worthy!

I keep being told that it is the DVLA that are causing the delay. The tesst have been done and passed, the car has been inspected, but supposedly they just keep asking questions about the engine number, even though they inspected it. I have given copies of the receipts from me buying the bike etc to prove its not a stolen motor but am still waiting. Every time I ask about it though I always get told that they cant get hold of the specific people at DVLA or told they are still looking at it etc. Its ridiculous!

All sounds very strange. I thought DVLA have stopped inspecting cars now and relied on the IVA to have done that. Not being able to get in touch with the person dealing with the application is also odd as I thought they all kit applications went through the same desk, since the local offices were closed and applications dealt with direct by Swansea. Some have chased up applications and had success, I think through the DVLA complaints procedure. Do you have all the details of the application so you could follow it up yourself?

As above,they are just using DVLA as an excuse IMO.

They don't inspect cars anymore,as all the local offices have been closed down.

It's all done by mail.

Get a trailer and get it from there

Not got DVLA registration still I dont believe, but more importantly we are struggling getting it mapping properly as just running rich all the time. So now the turbo is being removed to be tested. But as always its taking an age to be done!

Oh dear

What ECU and injectors are you using?

Why do they think a fueling problem is related to the turbo?

Sounds like you are very close now though Jon, best of luck getting it mapped, shouldn't be too hard i'd have thought.
