Hi

Well where to start, I have just bought a XR4x4 24v BOA off someone on here hence the registration
I have been building and racing Cosworths or Cosworth powered cars since 1992 and have had 4 Cars featured in Fast Ford Mag
I am a technical Mod on a few other sites but mainly Cosworth stuff so hope to learn about XR's from you guys.
I currently have a full race spec Sapphire 4x4 that is road legal with 400BHP and does 0-60 in under 4 seconds, will post some pics soon

Thats a bit about me, hope to get to know a few of you on here now



This Sapphire did 0 - 60 in 3.89 seconds, its even faster now

Now playing with a XR4x4 BOA, fun fun fun!

Yes managed to get on after the help from the Mod team, THANKS

Here are a few pics of my current car




Here are a few other cars I've had



Ex German Touring Car shell



The above graph was on pump fuel, it made over 450 on funny fuel



This was my 17K mile concourse car but had to sell it due to stone chips every time I took it out.

Hope you like them!

Not sure as they were fitted when I originally bought it the first time in 2003, needed as I am running 245\35 x 17's and they stick out a bit
