Heros of the track

Day to Day Stuff Posted on Sat, June 11, 2011 01:02:52

Viewed a video the other day and was on the edge of the seat watching it…awesum driving so close,what a driver,driven Combe a few times here over the last few years and been passenger in Dazers old Evo 5 at trackdays but this was close stuff.

Well my RS2K build goes on,just getting her sorted for RSCombe 2011 as my own work goes into overdrive here now for a few months,electrical work is a bit thin on the ground so seem to be doing more building maintenance sort of stuff,Secured a 12 week subcontract so a bit more happy now.

Here we are in June,where has the year gone?I just never got off the ground with the hillclimbing this year,shame really as I just didn`t have the ready cash at the begining of the year to plough into it.

Hopefully 2012 will be a better year as the car is now built up to where I want it to be.As always its still for sale @ £3600 as other projects will take over and proceed it.

Do come over for a chat at RSCombe if you are there.


New Daily Car

Day to Day Stuff Posted on Sat, May 07, 2011 01:08:26

Just thought Id pop a small post up of our new Daily car.

Galant Elegance V6 Estate. It runs a 2.5L V6 currently running 169hp – 175Ibft with just a K&N panel filter being the only mod.

Great for day to day stuff has full leather and A/C climate control. We spent around 4 month looking for one of these and alot of failed viewings of crap cars. So when this 54k 1 owner from new came up we were down to view the next morning.

Great car that I hope we can keep for a good few years to come specialy with a new family member on her way…

Laptop rebuild

Day to Day Stuff Posted on Thu, April 28, 2011 22:02:17

As some of the bods here know I used to build computers as part of my business,mainly desktops gaming rigs,top o` the range stuff,never really been into laptop fiddling,but after having a quote local for £130 to £150 to replace the dc input jack on my work come relaxing laptop I thought nah…its gonna be teared apart lol.

So out in the sun on the patio under the decking brolly on the big table I pulled the mother apart,seemed like 2 million pieces all over the place and enough screws to hold a house together,I nailed down to just the motherboard in my hands and the burn`t unsoldered dc input jack.Piece of piss,gulp look at all those parts on the table …..eyes wide open,new part installed an extended cable to an external jack…1 hour later it was all back together and worked 1st time no problems.

Hmmm laptops…….easy peazey. £130 they were having a larf..cost me…err nothing just a nice afternoon in the sun.

Yes this is the said culprit,working 100% typing this..smiley
