Well after a year out and going semi sensible with an e46 M3 coupe i have decided its time for another project and obviously it has to be bigger better and faster than the last so after toying with escort cosworth group a shells and focus cosworths etc i decided on the mk6 fiesta with the jwrc kit the same as the likes of pat and liam dorans rallycross cars as i just love the look of them with the kit and the big bhp 4wd cosworth set up,

well its gonna be long, expensive, very testing and did i mention very expensive :blub: but here goes..............

i did look into getting a new shell from fords but for the cost and then having to buy sill little things like dash/lights/brackets etc i ended up sourcing a complete 53 plate tdci 1 owner from new lol for 900, that is completely rot free and has them bits on it already so away we go, let the build commence :cool!:

here is the future beast

started to strip it pretty much straight away but as it still drives and has tax and mot for 2 months i might go and get the rear quarters put on and the wrc sill tubes fitted while i can drive it there,

i have been too and fro as to whether it should be 2wd or 4wd but i just don't think it would be as drivable as rwd car with no overhang at the rear but the pro's are 2wd transmission for big bhp around the 450-500bhp is cheaper but a 4wd set up would handle like its on rails but be a lot more expensive slightly heavier and more complicated to work on so i am still undecided on that as yet, any opinions please post them up :cool!:

will talk a bit more about desired spec and plans soon.
