North west stages this weekend in Blackpool. Is anyone going along?

It will be my first event out in the car. I have never driven a RWD car in competition and it will also be the first time i have driven a LHD car in anger also.

The car has been a nightmare since i bought it last November and i had planned to be out on the Xmas stages, but it has needed so much time and money spending on it, and no doubt will require some more. Currently it's functional and will eventually look pretty once i know it works and i get things how i like them.

We're seeded at 36 of the 110 (i think) entries, so if you're about, come over and say hi, it's sure to be a steep and slippy learning curve!

It didn't, :shock:

Car was fine and then on the way back from scrutineering it developed a misfire, we changed coil packs, plugs were new before the event etc used the dta software to check the injectors and all seemed to come back ok, The injectors have been away and came back as ok this afternoon. So we still have a misfire and i'm running out of ideas. :cry:

Yeah, i wasn't impressed. It was fine until driving back from scrutineering...
Plugs were new before the event, all injectors have been checked, the ECU and loom are new and have been fine during mapping, brief test etc. I have ordered a fuel pressure tester (gauge) and a compression tester which i should receive today. This should hopefully rule out a few things. Then it's back to replacing the plugs with the old ones to see if that makes a difference.
