  1. I'd love to see a video. Got my Escort Mk2 here ready to build. I'll probably do it over Xmas.
  2. My Escort MkII arrived today and all the upgrade parts.
  3. ...and then he went all quite. Results not to his liking? He originally badgered me into giving a figure for how much faster a lightweight car might be. I gave him a figure in the end just to shut him put.
