Been a while but as racing always goes we have had to move on from the rs2k to other things,athough I loved my Escort there is no way I could shave the weight down or get the engine up to winnng performance.After months of work by Darren hunting this down its finally mine,280 bhp and built by a ex Bennaton F1 head of electronics,it runs a Mass race engine 15k build and the car has some mad electronics on it,data logged brakes and steering,it runs Kevlar grp1 doors,Kevlar wings,carbon bonnet,Inconel exhaust manifold,Mass dry sump to name half of it.Stoppers are AP all round,the list is endless.

I reckon there was still loads more potential with the rs2k, as don't get me wrong you guys were doing brilliantly with what you had. weren't you guys coming 2nd and 3rd sometimes? and that was with a relatively tuned engine with less than 200bhp? I reckon given the chance and has the block reworked with high comp pistons, jenveys the works you could easily seen close to 300bhp but then again I don't know how much you guys paid for the beast you have now!

you guys got a sequential box? can't wait to see it in action!

Yea pretty mental Wayne,only took delivery of it Sunday,still have odd bits to sort...ie full wrap except bonnet,engine pre heater to buy...its afull race engine so needs pre warming.
Would of loved to of continue with the rs, Slee,there were many underlying problems that were doing my head in,handling one,weight another,to get it where I would of wanted would of cost me another 12k easy and then it would of got no where near this....590 kg pug.
What I have just bought for  under 9k that included another same spec engine and gearbox and boxes of group 1 spares and a trailer far surpassses what I struggled to sell for 4k,the ex manifold made from inconel 2.5k and the spare wheels and tyres would equaite to the bargain price I paid for this.This actual car still holds the record at prescot for our class..even a 1400 turbo audi...480bhp could not beat it,record stands from 2010 from memory...all I have to do is learn to drive it...summing up...I ran out of interest and time and money on the rs2k project...still its now going into circuit racing round the london area
