Got the little plastic racing car back on the road today after a few years' absence. She's been for a heavy maintenance visit at HHC Sportscars (http://www.hhcsportscars.co.uk/) - old friends of mine - and is fighting fit once again. It's a good omen.

If you want to feel the pain of driving a Group-B car to Alston and back I'll sit on your sofa while you're away. :lol:

Reverse lights are sorted too - stupid things!

The 6R4 is positively dangerous, it really is. It's also horrible and harsh to drive. The RS200 is a brilliant chassis, totally forgiving. It can be effortlessly drifted around corners where the Metro would just take a huff and hurl you into the trees. The RS is a beautiful creature too whilst the Metro looks like some idiot modified his mum's car on a poor budget. But l do love that V64V engine! Put that in the RS200 chassis and you'd have something really special.
