Today I went to see a friend who works at John Ashley cars - his place of work.



He literally fitted me in with zero notice and moved other jobs around so many thanks for that.



My "attach of the RTV" was mostly highly successful. Enough for Lee to ask do I really want this doing.



As two bolts were knackered and I have a trackday on Saturday I thought what the heck, lets get it done.



Its now leak free with a new liquid gasket in place so roll on Saturday

My list of jobs is now :

Discover WTAF is going on with the immo. Its working as in I cannot start the car without pressing the big button.
After EXACTLY 2 minutes I get the red flashing on the dash whether ignition on , car on or off. Whats going on with it?

A brilliant day at Blyton park today with [mention]Fonzey[/mention]
I went out in the first session with rears set at 26 cold, fronts 24.

That might have been a mistake because after two laps this happened :

Summary.

After spending many thousands of pounds on a plastic shed , and the spending a while lot more on it getting it just right with some on point geo the exige clicked. I have learnt a good few things in my exige ownership namely.

1) Geo is vital. Shit geo , shit laps
2) Suspension is king. Leaking shocks , or worn parts mean shit laps
3) I can be faster. I need tuition.
4) Its really hard to feel the edge of the grip at Blyton, is it the tarmac or is it me?
5) I dearly love driving the exige on track , or on the road.

Thanks chaps for the kind words. All I recall is seeing Armco , field , Armco , field , track ..

I did 78mi on track. At lunch I topped up the fuel tank and worked out 16.6mpg average which I don’t think is horrific.
