Thanks for all the feedback fellas. A bit more of an update. Had a bit of an epiphany one night recently and realised this attempt at Targa High Country (3 day tarmac rally here in Australia at the start of november) was all a bit too much to take on with so little prep. Having had no serious seat time in a couple of years and being such a new car, we were really setting ourselves up for a hiding along the lines of a premature mech fail, or a journey into the weeds. So have pulled the pin and will hope to be there next year. In the meantime we will have plenty of time to get the car setup and to get to know it and get my eye in. I think I kind of forgot how much time I put in last time in the evo prior to heading over. Just cant expect to pull things together so last minute and expect things to go smoothly. Am gutted not to be participating and catching up with the targa crew, but I guess there is always next year.

So I have finally driven it. Was a big day.

Sorry to hear your not going to compete but agree that it's the better call, as you say you never know when that first brake problem or driveline issue may pop up sending you into the bushes or worse.

Car sounds and looks amazing. Looking forward to some vids at full pelt!

At first while watching that second vid i was like how in the world are you driving and filming at the same time, then it hit me... duh rhd. So great seeing the car moving, always loved the Moffat cars, shame it is so tough to get those flares over here.

Well it has been a while since I updated. A fair bit has been going on. Have actually had it out on the track for a proper shakedown. Seems to be coming along really well. Still some fine tuning required on the handling but very happy considering how much of an unknown quantity it is. I have my first tarmac rally coming up in May so trying to get as much seat time and development into the car as I can.


Have also had it back on the dyno. Is making 442 whp, full boost (20psi) by 3200 rpm and already kicking out 200hp at this point and pulling hard to 8500rpm so a very useable power band. Extremely happy with the EFR turbo. I guess you could safely call it 500 crank HP and 1000kg (2200lb) car weight so I guess you are into super car territory of paganis and Mclarens. Very keen to put it down the quarter mile.

Then a friend did a photo shoot for a magazine feature here in Australia. Captured some nice images. Good to have some before the car gets too tracked and stone chipped.
