Somewhat yes. About 50% of the symptoms dissapeared when I ditched the fuel regulator. Still some issues but I'm getting there.

Sorry which race was this? The one where you'd stripped out your boot while I was running around with a box of tools and spares in mine? How much did you win by on that one again? :lol:

Holy moly, I've not updated this in a while. I'm currently just about getting back on top of my finances so expect some exciting things very soon! Some stuff is in the post soon which will complete my "image" that I had at the very beginning. Meaning I'm dangerously close to finishing a project...

For achiving purposes, here's the recent hillclimb video.
