    Make the Noise!!

    I have also been hooked on this, should be a serious little rocket ship can't wait to see it run. On another not too different note on RacecarsDirect.com there is a Ford Fiesta with a 500hp 4x4 Sierra Cosworth running gear shoe horned into it very well done and very cool Cheers Leon
