Yeh OK, OK. That's just showing off! And yes if you show up in it at our next meet I'll buy you breakfast. Good to see the old girl up n running again. What's next on the agenda?

Show off!!

I like the transparent rear end so you can see the engine - where did you get that made up ;)

So, if it is up and running we can expect you at the Crystal Palace sprint at the end of May?

With any luck, i've got a bit of time off work so car get some bits done. Its going to be a case of getting it MOT'd and on the road and then finishing it as we go i think. My plan is to bring both the Imp and the Davrian, but not sure Dad has the same idea!!!!

Hi every body, davrians are looking great on the net,if only we could
finish them and have a get to gether that would be out of this world.
So many differant ideas each one of has on how a DAVRIAN should be.
Keep up the good work.

Good job D.C. It's so good to see at least one back on the road. I dare say that some of the other Davrianites have now been spured on to get theirs sorted. Asd for mine, I'm gutted to say that it will deffinately not be ready for the wedding. Good news is that the panels are now starting to be fitted properly. Bad news is that after the laquer was removed to allow for re-fiberglassing we found that the paint underneath was still soft! I'm afraid i'm going to have to say that it will not not be done until next year. Like I said......Gutted!

Thanks Blade, just covered 200 miles running in,no probs as yet
just find it difficult to keep revs to under 3000. motor
pulls like a train. trying to set shocks to average road conditions
there are 28 settings I,m on 14 at the moment just a tad to
hard. front wheels set to 1/2 a degree neg turns in well at this setting.
brakes are fantastic xr2 cross drilled 4 pot calippers and granarda rears.
Hope this gives Davrianites a shot in the arm.
All The best
