I would expect drive in drive out for 30K, this kind of biuld (as you will know) is a lot more involved than whacking an engine in the front, the man hours alone must be astronomical!

think i must have caught him at the right time cause mine was nowhere near that price.
his work is second to none: couldnt fault what her done for me.

yeah robs work is excellent i love his silver clubman.
have you looked into what peformance yours will be compared to a zcars kit.
would be good to get yours and a zcars on a track and compare them.

Not knowing much about zcars figures or mine I can't really say
I no mine is basiclly the same set up as robs apart from engine wich has a posible 350 400bhp being resricted by radiator and intercooler robs is 280bhp I think.
Then theres weight a zcars kit must b lighter than mine so will be very interesting: I can't wait to find out.
