Forgot to update this after the other weekend.

Went to another pay and play day with a couple of other forum members and had an absolute ball. This thing is just too much fun.

This day killed my radiator as it filled with mud and when trying to clean it bent all the fins. A new one has been ordered and I think I'm going to have to treat the rad as a consumable. Only £45 though so not too bad.

I've also developed some bad clicking noises underneath which a google has suggested is related to the swing arm mountings working loose. One to investigate.

Finally the rear brakes are now goosed. They've filled with mud and no longer function at all. I could rebuild them but frankly it seems easier to do the rear disc conversion and although £250ish it'll save me money and time in brake rebuilds in the future.

MOT runs out on Oct 11th and as I have the Race Of Remembrance 1000km Endurance race in the Skuzzle Motorsport Turbo MX5 in November to do I suspect this poor thing will be neglected until December.

Bad News!

Not used this since September and the MOT ran out in October. Needs a CAT and rear brakes

Good news!

Jimny Bits rear disc conversion kit, Megane calipers and a CAT ordered and received this week. Should be back on the road in a couple of weeks if all goes to plan.
