Darrian

Post by MydT9 »

Hi all,

First of all, well done on putting together what is likely to be a succesful Forum for the Davrian and Darrian. I have a Darrian T9 No 39 (the last T9 model) which I rally down here in Wales. I've taken a year out of rallying to concentrate on a full bare tub rebuild of my car, more details on http://www.darriant9rallying.co.uk

Current update is making a new complete dash out of Carbon fibre as well as a new Carbon front and rear clam but rear has been modified to accept round lights and some other minor tweeks. I started the strip down in March 09 and I have literally been working on the car nearly every Saturday and 1-2 evenings since.....my tip here is never underestimate the time needed to do a job :shock:

However I don't wish to detract from the fabulous little Davrian which I have always wanted and will .....one day for sure ...

Happy to talk more about Darrians anyway

See you,

Mydrian

It's geart to see a Davrian forum.....there is a guy in my village who has a MK8 road car...one of the mini engined ones....he has had it since new and I would love to buy it from him.....may have to knock on his door one day!...after all I still have my old steel mini rally engine and box sitting in the corner. :twisted:

Now you are just showing off!

When are me and you going to do the same event then?

I have an ambition to get as many Darrians on the same rally as each other and then try to win all the classes......what about Rockingham in December? amazing venue.....and it's at the end of the year so it wont interfere with anybodys championships.

Hi Chaps,

I am pleased to say that my beloved T9 its now back together but it took a little more than a year ... :lol: ...(pesky work gets in the way ;) ) I have my rolling road next Wednesday so that will hopefully go smooth. Its running a tad rich at the moment with the spec i am running but we'll soon sort that out along with the timing of the Flatshifter.

I might take the camcorder with me to capture it on the rollers....

Any progress with anyone else?

We will definately need to blitz some rally with a lot of Darrian presence... a class win by Darrian in each Class now that would make front page with MS News :D I'll start with my Class 1 - entry, so who's offering the rest? ;)
