*THUD* (the sound of me falling off my chair..)

Got this from TurboTechnics today: quote:Hi David,Very pleased to let you know that your Exige will be ready for you to collect on Thursday 30th August onwards.I look forward to hearing from you to make collection arrangements.Very best regards,Rob.Let’s just hope he means August 30th 2001 !Watch this space !

Ye Ha!

Result! [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif[/image]

so what’s the first event you will be attending david?I think you should organise a special viewing session on the 1st weekend…meet in a pub somewhere up the road from you and let us all have a good look and crawl around the car.Also could have a mini F&C run if anybody else was interested?

Steve, that sounds like an excellent idea, how about it David ?? [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif[/image]

WAHOO!!!Here here for the mini f&C / meet up!!! I can’t wait to see this monster!

I’m not sure what the first trackday will be… but there is an EVENING meet at Donington on that very Thursday night [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/grin.gif[/image] [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/grin.gif[/image] Let’s not get carried away however, as TurboTechnics aren’t exactly famous for delivering on time… That Saturday (1st Sept) the Northern Exige folk were planning to meet up with me, as I’m collecting this from Middlehurst Motorsport: [image]http://www.skylinesdownunder.co.nz/skylinepictures/R34-GTR/R34-GTR-2.jpg[/image] Supercars are like buses… you don’t see one for ages, then 2 come along 3 days apart…Once I’ve met up with those Northen chimps [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/wink.gif[/image] I’m driving down to Kemble in the Skyline where there’s a Skyline-only trackday (no… just spectating)My Sunday is free if you guys want to congregate with Exige ?Failing that, it can be the next weekend.For the record, I’m booked in for Sept 13th at Donington and the 24th Sept. (Anyone got a track day available earlier ?)[This message has been edited by Admin5 (edited 25 August 2001).]

David,how many boxes is your exige engine packed in? Will they fit in the boot of the Skyline?

Whats made way for that then Dave?Suburu or Boxster?Nice.

Rich, the scooby went - as it was getting on a bit (2-3 yrs old)I received this from TT today regarding running the car in: quote:As a new engine, it will require a period of running in. This is the regimewe would ask you to follow:The first 1000 miles is road use only. This does not exclude hard roaddriving using the full rev range, but excludes prolonged high engine load.After 1000 miles, we will carry out an engine check, which will includechanging engine oil and filter. If all is OK, track days can begin.

quote:The first 1000 miles is road use onlyDo you suddenly feel like visiting those distant relations that you haven’t seen for ages? [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/wink.gif[/image]

Now I have two cars that each need a 1000 miles put on them as soon as possible before I can really play with them [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/image]

Perhaps we can help!

I am sure you could find plenty of people on here willing to assist you in completing the mileage!! [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/wink.gif[/image] I wouldn’t mind doing a few miles in either of them!
