Over the last few months it’s been hard to find time to progress the Maxi, nonetheless it has moved forwards. In summary, both front wheel arches are now tubbed for the larger wheel size as per the works cars, the engine mount and gearbox mounts have been reworked to allow for a 1.6 litre TU-based engine (as opposed to 2.0 litre XU) and Sadev sequential box (which was made possible thanks to a loan of a dummy casing from SWR Motorsport) to be fiited. Bit of work needed to finish the job but it is nearly there.

Bought one or two things such as this customised oil catch tank, which is a copy of the works tank.

Tidied up the front end a bit and the car has now gone into storage pending a house move.

It may need some significant attention to get it back to its glory days and the Peugeot 2 litre BTCC touring car engine and Sadev sequential 6 speed box may have been sold, but given it now has all of the body panels in carbon fibre and an engineless weight of 640kg it’s a hell of a starting point.

End of an era today as this car finally left my ownership after many years and has gone to a fellow 106 Rallye Register owner up in North Wales. I know he has big plans for it as a race car so that it will undoubtedly be seen again within the club in future. A few departure photos from this morning

Have spent a bit of free time over the last few weeks painting and prepping the car for reassembly. As part of finishing up this thread from my perspective, here are some pics of the Corsa C EPAS conversion for future reference.
