But I thought you wanted to be able to give rides (I think "scare people"were your words)... or is sitting on the floor an option? If not, why this then?

Nice, I'll give you 100 quid for the brakes.
All that venting and cooling is no use on a one lap sprint. If you change to solid discs the calipers will be wrong so you might as well throw those in for an extra 20quid.

It does look the nuts, it's a proper race car.

Why does it have two Life ECU's?

Also what dashboard is that and does it have data-logging (if so is the software any good?)?

Motec dash, the data logging is done on the Life F88. I asked why two ECUs and the answer I got was "because I could" ....and then because it need more inputs.

Interesting circuit breakers in a long line of the dash, no fuses.

Still seems odd having two ECU, not sure why/how they work together but must make tuning more difficult/ complicated. Be very interested to see it when you finally get it home :D

Circuit breakers are common in 'proper' race cars and obviously easier to push in if one pops....doesn't solve the problem of why its poped though!
