Yet more R&D....

At last our manifolds arrived!
Belgian customs didn't really help, keeping them for nearly 5 weeks, oh the joys of bureaucracy.....
If you want to run P11's or Weber's on your Okrasa heads, then you will be needing a set of these :-)

I would also like to thank Ray, for listening to my endless whining ....

Last minute sunshine!

Taking advantage of the fantastic recent weather, the '54 was out and about for some final road testing in fast driving conditions before being put into hibernation for the winter.
After some tweaking the oil temperature is down 10ºC under fast driving conditions in warm weather, perfect for Le Mans Classic next year ;-)

Vintage VW's @ REME Museum

Last weekend was the 2nd Ivan Hurst Historic meeting at the Reme Museum, so we went along to see who was there and what was happening.
As before some beautiful vintage VW's attended and all the usual suspects were there :-)

We know it's a little late posting, but we have all been busy this week with normal work and brain storming 30hp performance stuff ready for Le Mans Classic next year....
