Hi All,

I bought the car from Mike in Tassie and brought it back to Victoria early Dec 09.

The word Nears in car Nears completion is relative.

Here's the low downs:

Good bits:
- Car got PACE motors, exhaust and 48 Webbers.
- Malvern Motorsport cage.
- Wheels and near new track tyres.
- Body reasonable condition with some surface rust (being taken care of hopefully before mid Jan)
Not so good bits:
- Body reasonable condition with some surface rust (being taken care of hopefully before mid Jan)
- Second gear is toast, no lsd.
- Street Suspension (have since put in PACE torsion bars, rear spring and rear Konis, front sway bar)
- Some of wirings and fuel hose work is a bit DIY stuff will need to be redone.
- Race seats not to my liking and how it's been bolted in is also a bit DIY.
Things on the todo list before Mar 2010:
- rear swaybar, all 4 konis revalved.
- twin spark gearbox with lsd
- Seats
- 5 points harness
- Minor (I hope) rust repair
- Kill Switch
- interior clean up
- CAMS group S log book
There are plenty of other things to do but right now timing and budget wise this will have to do

I had the car out for AROCA Dec 13th sprint, and being in an Alfa for the first time, on the road or the track, I was very apprehensive.
I was expecting something to fall off or fail during the day but it all went well which was very pleasing.
And the best part about the car was definitely the PACE engine, its a little beauty.

Welcome hmd!

I told you they were a good thing!!  Great to have another Alfa running in Group S in Victoria......2010 should be impressive.  There should be at least 6 at most rounds now.

I'm so very very tired......I got confused with all the Tony's, I figured there must have been multiple Hung's too. Ummm would you believe (in your best Maxwell Smart voice)
