is that one of the first ones 1320 did? I think I met the guy there a couple of years ago, they were showing me the install etc.

the video isn't the most flattering is it

I'm sure he's a nice guy, but most of these car vlogs are way over the top to get more views.

I followed the build over the years. Fairly certain its all 1320 work. And yes like he said he did a W11 engine conversion first.

Sounds great though, and was nice more than a 10second instagram vid of a car like that

James who owns the car is a proper nice guy as well.

Looks like he's in someone's way haha, I presume he's just passed that? Oh look! There's that number plate that just 'fell off', 'again' haha. That nice policeman was a little gullible haha

Watched James try (and fail) to launch this at the pod last mitp. I couldn't work out which was at fault, his driving or his setup, either way all of his attempts were laden with fail

The sounds of the rear scraping suggest he's got some work to do on his handling. My bet is an R53 in challenge trim would still give this a hiding on most tracks and the ring.

Has it ever been a dyno that's not 1320 to verify figures?

Lol the hatred is strong here.

It looks like a very quick car. Credit is due.

Awesome build, James is a really sound guy, it would go much better on track if he went for a more track focussed setup, wanting a show car and the performance is always going to create compromise but it's his car and that's what he wants it to do so fair play to him I say.

I can't bring myself to spend £220 on it though. But so much want.

No hate, just a bit of fact stating and observation from the video. I met James back when this was still a cooper and hes a loverly chap.
