So I've got to episode 20. Engine sounds really nice, got some deep thunder in that exhaust!
I'm not sure if you know this, but seeing the rear disc internal handbrake, wondering if the 60 series
full floater could take that as an upgrade or not or whether it would widen the axle too much.
Something for me to look into. I'm happy with my rear drums, upgrade might be nice.
Is there any video of it actually on the street running yet?

It's super loud at the moment because it's only running with the headers on. I'm trying not to let it run too much as it has no 02 sensors in, so it's super rich. Hoping to get it to the exhaust show this week.

I've upped the rear axel studs from 8mm to 10mm, so hopefully that'll be enough for the mean time. I can't see myself driving it KOTH style anyway :)

Not that I've used it properly yet, but I have installed the Superior dogbones and handbrake lever upgrade. I'm told it's a huge difference.

Could you do an episode list with the numbers and what is covered in each? Too much to just watch everything.
It's on the to do list (honestly)
When it's finished I'll do one of those "Build in 10 minutes" compilations too.
