Mike was very quick in the 3 rounds that he competed in this year in the irish championship (untill the engine started to let go).

If the engine gremlins dont come back te reek havok at brands he has a very good chance of being in the top 3

Totally agree - Manning was superb at Lydden as well, he was really flying until something broke. It's a shame really because he was easily the quickest driver there on the day and deserved to get more out of the meeting.

Which bit of the info thats common knowledge have u got rxie, but since you are based in the locality of Mr Evans I'd imagine you'd know alot more than the rest of us.

Dermot with the diff on the british rounds, Michael with the Kamshaft, Michael Morris with the gearbox at the last event, supercar just seems to be a theme of mechanical gremlins lately.

Any sign of mr. gollop ?

Re Mr Gollop:-
He is entered and should show up but as to his reliability---well who knows he has been just as unreliable as all the rest but for different reasons.

Bang for buck the old YB still seems to be the way to go doesn't it? Has anybody tried getting 500+bhp out of a Duratec engine yet? Is that an improvement on the Zetec?

Yeh, Zetech then duratec (and duratorque :P )

There was some guy over here building a duratec engine for a puma rallycar, that was some 9/10 months ago ? havnt heard anything from it...

the bangs for buck dosnt seem to be too many on the zetec's, but isnt the duratec only a slightly different setup to the zetec, read something in the irish autobiz a few months ago about them but they were saying there is not much different, just that the lifespan of the engine is much longer than before from a little more horsepower than before.. Sorta like the New VW FSI engines, they are designed for comprimising preformance and long life, but the new golf gti is 2.0 (bi?)turbo fsi....

Might be able to get more out of duratec engines, seeing as ford are doing the new Sports Dura Torque diesel engines with 150 - 180 bhp... any ford nuts around?
