A guy called Andy Toner used to post on here, he had an S2000 powered Westie. Sounded awesome but he had loads of trouble with setting it up.

Thought about doing it with the Fury build, but Rover V8s are easier (marginally :( )

mesh covering the exhaust on the side of the westie looks terrible, sounds good popping on the overrun in the gallery video though

i dont have a garage at the mo, when I do I'd seriously consider flogging the S and going down the Westie/Caterham route, have a knowledgeable friend with one as well.

I was out with Ian at the weekend Matt. a) cleared my sinuses (no doors on) b) permanent grin

my parents said I could be anything I wanted to be, so I became an asshole.

A bit O/T but I'm seriously considering one of them Honda powered Elises next.

Not very sensible financially, but no worse than a TVR. Probably.

Have a garage... and a Caterham too... :LOL:

It's "only" a 1.4K Supersport but it's quick, with fantastic handling, noisy and great fun...

If you can, do it!

yes, we even managed to drive around the very heavy cloud burst in the area (by chance). Had to stop at a garage to wipe the spray off of the inside of the windscreen at one point :D

No sideways action, I think my considerable ballast was helping the grip ;)

We did drive past the place where he hit the deer. "that's where I put it in the ditch!" :yikes: :LOL:

I was following a F20c-engined Spyder around Bassingbourne.

It wasn't properly set up, but with circa 200 BHP and 600Kgs, fast when he could keep the wheels on the ground!

Is it any wonder that the Honda S2000 has been hailed by perceptive drivers as a new paragon of roadworthiness, considering that the distribution of its masses..........L J K Setright

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.......George Bernard Shaw

Ever since September of 2008, we have seen the fruits of the fiat money roots that Mises warned against almost a century ago. But modern free-market economists are as hostile to Mises's theory of the business cycle as they were hostile to Mises's theory of the economic irrationalism of socialism . . . until the Soviet Union fell. Then, they got religion, but they still never mention Mises. It was as if he had never lived....Gary North
