Lows vs Fibreglass: the Battle for Durability

With Alex’s S14a being as low as it is, fibreglass parts tend not to last too long. The side skirts in particular have an especially¬†hard time, with the bottom section consistently rubbing the floor on acceleration and eventually just eroding away. Now that he has a new Origin Labo Racing Line kit to fit, it was time for Alex to make some preventative measures to ensure the parts last that little bit longer than usual.

This is Only the Beginning…: 2016 in Review

What a year. I don’t think this website has ever caused so much combined stress and excitement for me since I began blogging six years ago.

The STL PS13 – RIP

My PS13 didn’t have the longest of lives – while I thoroughly enjoyed throwing it around on track I really dreaded using it on the road at all and it became a toy that only came out the workshop to be used on track. This isn’t the way I envisaged my time with the car to be like, so unfortunately I have decided to part it out. Pretty much everything is available – check out the list below. For more info on any specific parts, please email me on ali@ej9.co.uk. Click on the part names to see photos of them. I’ll be adding more pictures shorty.
