    Nothing happing with the car at the moment with the weather being so shocking and cold

    Also having problems with my motocross bike it keeps snapping the clutch push rod and I don't know why with out splitting the cases, so I have sent it to an ex factory racing mechanic for him to find the issue with it

    Argh. the Yamaha push rod. Don't know why, never had it with any other make but my R1 race bike used to break the tophat on the push rod frequently. It also wore the selector forks a lot which apparently puts pressure on it and it finds the weakest point. In 2 years of owning and racing it, I stripped the gearbox 3 times!

    NA, retired now mate. Divorce helped with that lol.
    Was a great bike, handled really well, almost 600 style of handling which I needed at 5.7 and 11 stone :-/ Miss the bikes but don't miss the expense. Got the FN2 to play with now and spend what I can when available, having a 3 year old seems to take up a lot of time and money though.

    Love the FN2, first Type-R I've own so nothing to compare against but in my youth (50 now) I had RS Turbo's and 2.8 Inj Capri's (plenty of bikes too) and the FN2 is so much better all round. Just trying to personalise it styling wise atm and not sure about tuning. As with the bikes I know it's expensive to get NA petrol power. But do like the idea of a Charger lol

    make the most of having no kids, it's what i did until 47 which allowed me to play with the bikes. Once there here the money will go elsewhere, but wouldn't change it. hence why I enjoy watching others modding and building some fantastic projects.
