Dont know if anyone noticed, but Mark Biggers was at the Jap show last weekend and only entered the RWYB category. He ran [email protected] in his 32GTR and must be worthy of some congratulations ? If I am not mistaken its a home grown car built with the talents of MGT racing and some helpful hints from RK Ron himself. Take a look at JapShow - Report Finale 2006, see for yourselves. If I have missed this in another thread, then apologies, but if not, well done Mark !:thumbsup:

Hi Tim:)

since this is not just Tims thread.
Well done for getting so far Barrie.
Congrats on your first 9 Mark especially as not running in pro class.
Really feel sorry for John and ****.
****, your time will come, just like Tim.
Sorry for Ronnie as well. Cars must be getting tired as end of the year!
Overall, a great day out.

So Yes:)

What is the spec of your car Mark, is it stripped out etc? Tremendous result, breaking into the 9's takes some doing:smokin:

Hi guys!

Thank you so much for all your comment and your congratulations. Building and modifying this car has been very much a labour of love over the past six months and, believe me, there have been times when I have thought about throwing in the towel. The engine and gearbox have been in and out so many times to achieve the result I have that I think I can do it blindfold now !!!!! I acknowledge the enormous help and advice I have had from various friends and colleagues. Garth at MGT Racing has assisted me especially, by giving me space in his workshop, advising me throughout the project, often at impossible times of day (trust me, I can be difficult when things are going wrong and he and his staff have coped woinderfully with my tempers), so a massive thanks to all of them. Ron at RK Tuning has been a huge help in offering advice and supplying parts, frequently to impossible dealines! Sorry, Ron, for all the phone calls at rediculous times. Thanks also to RB Motorsport for their help and advice. A massive thanks to my business partner at Helena Wines for putting up with my moods and generally unresonable behaviour - thanks Charles.

Now, here is a brief spec on the car:

The car is in full road trim, apart from the rear seats being removed to accommodate race harnesses, and has been driven to and from every event.
I am not running nitrous, even though th facilty is fitted to the car. The present fuel system will not cope with any additional demand.
My engine is a 2.8 stoker with a billet crank, pistons and 'H' pattern rods. A 6speed sequential gearbox is fitted, together with a GT42 Turbo and 1000cc injectors, home-made 5inch downpipe, Autronic ECU (by the way the copper pipe in the picture is my det-can!). There are lots and lots of other mods, some minor and some more important, but I would here for ever if I were to list them all.

I am hoping to run the car on the 29th October at Shakespeare Raceway, Avon Park, in the final round of the Jap Racer Series, which I am currently leading. I am hoping for even better than 9.9secs.

Thanks to all and take care,

Mark Biggers.

Considering you drove to and from the track and didn't have any mechanical problems (unlike most of the 'bigguns'), makes the achviement even more impressive:) Just a couple of questions, what make is the billet crank, rods and pistons, and the inside i know it's not stripped but apart from the rear seats is anything else removed, air con etc.
