924 from project to past-time

It may come as a great surprise to see the 924 race car project move into the twilight of all project cars: doing what it was intended.

That's right, it's now a functional racecar shaving down seconds of laptime at QR, Lakeside and Morgan park.


Nick and I have made an update to the game we are making. This time, Nick did some JavaScript, edited collision for the level and designed an enemy, click to play!

Donk out

Nothing like sitting down on a stool and servicing an engine that's on the stand

Reinforced the house bearers with 6mm steel plate so I could lift the motor:

Hooked up the chain hoist and the donk came free pretty easily:

Workshop open for business

I'm a happy little boy because the dream of the last 5 years is reality - workshop with a car in it.

Shop Organiser

Picked up some really cheap parts storage bins a few weeks ago then knocked this organiser up from scrap:

Started out with some 1mm zinc sheet and 50x25mm tube scrap.

Nick and Charles make a game part 1

My 7-year old nephew Nick and I had our first game making session last week and we've started on THE LOST MONSTER.

All artwork and design by Nick, I'm helping out with some programming until he gets the hang of it. Click the picture to play! Controls are keyboard arrow keys.

How much do you bench?

The workshop needed a new bench so I started with 2 doors and some galvanised 50x50x3mm RHS.

Which was then welded up into a frame that would allow 60mm overhang for the doors

Ebisu Drift Grand Prix 2015

One of the highlights of last year's Japan trip was seeing the country's national motorsport live in Ebisu, Fukushima.

Definitely a spectacle worth seeing, plenty of hype, music, dancing and most of all character. The drivers and their rivalries were played up which made it all the more engaging, almost like the WWE of motosport.
