    Hi nice car!

        that`s equal to 510nm.. ! impressive amount of torque, would imagine the car is a lot more responsive to drive

          Hey, I was wondering what exactly and how did you do to paint your wheels like that? Costs etc.

          Very nice work indeed in the Arden.

            Yes, and the torque was turned down a bit to preserve the clutch. It could have been over 380 Ftlb.


            It goes well, but the induction noise is a bit higher. Stage 3 next !

              The previous owner had them done, so I cannot take the credit. He is about on here sometimes.
              I think they were done by a wheel company in Essex called Alloyart.
              But I'm not sure how long they are going to last, as they have a number of stone chips, as it is Arden Blue paintwork !
              I have given them a coating of Looking Sweet wheel wax, brought them up a treat.

                        I had not seen one in the rear view mirror before, they look good.

                          Thought so. I thought those wheels looked familiar and I saw it ages back in the ramp at Levoi's
