I don't think he has as he wants me to build an ITB setup for his engine as well, LOL. Like that is going to happen within the next 2 years.

Seriously, Mosport is a great track to race on. It is very fast and very blind. I have a couple of other links for you guys to enjoy of me over the last few years.

I haven't forgotten! I've barely had time this year to do basic fluid changes on the car let alone get the car out to you...
