Picked it up today from EMC Motorsport with new GAZ Gold coilovers and a brake refurb with new discs and Mintex race pads.

WOW!!

Lower and harder than I was expecting but only what you could expect from an outfit that prep race cars. I can adjust the damping off a little and lift the car if need be but it was set up as a road/track compromise. Its not as low nor firm as a race car but too far for many tastes. The brakes are now spot on with plenty of bite and feel. All in I am happy. Money spent is way more than many would deem appropriate on this age/value car but I can pick and choose how I spend my cash. Its not my daily drive so I am not going to suffer too much in the back dept.

It has been corner weighed, measured and aligned and drives round corners on rails. It is bang on 50/50 weight in all directions.

Here's some quick picks in the dry spell before getting home.
Beautiful! When I was in my late teens , early 20s I used to dream of owning one of those beasts! hope you are enjoying it as much as I am enjoying admiring the photos! Quality mate!
