Cheers Alex.

 

As far as my next project goes, I am desperately lusting after an MEV Sonic 7.  Drool..

Mike can I (hopefully) steer you clear of the MEV 7 - the company are a bunch of cowboys and are VERY unhelp in all areas. A friend has one which hes been building for several months, but the kit has been built by an untrained chimp. He contacted them for guidance and was told basically where to go... Spend a bit more and go for a proper brand.

First engine didnt fit due to exhaust manifold (which the chassis was built for the st170)

Hmm, worth knowing Dan, many thanks.  I'll definitely keep that in mind.

 

To be honest, it's a pipe dream at the moment anyway!  I need a garage first!
