Default Ohhhh What to do

Well with my kit now sold I've take the plunge and bought Marlins 1600cc Demo Car. Question is do I :

a) Leave it as it is and enjoy it.

b) turn it into a race car and go racing.

c) get Marlin to fit my Type - R engine into it.

Help needed as I just can't decide...... life is so tough

Drive the car and get used to it. Then fit Type R engine.

Or get Type R engine fitted during winter so ready for spring.

Default my opinion

If I were you Dan,
I would enjoy the car as is, get used to it, do a few track days, then if you feel you want more power do the conversion next winter.

Best regards


Brian

Just my opinion, but you'd be crazy to take it off the road, now you have a running car. I mean, the whole point of buying the ex-demo was to have something you could drive now. Have fun with it, get used to driving it, schedule the engine refit for next winter.

your probably right, I should just leave it alone and enjoy the car for a bit. Being how much of an indecisive git I am it's best left I feel... Hmmm
I'm sure Marlin think I'm a royal pain in the ass...

Dan,

I am going racing next year in the 750MC so its only obvious that you should join us...

Have you spoken to Terry or Mark about racing possibilities at all? if not then either call me or Terry to find out more..
