Re: AMH 337H Rallycross Preparation in USA - Shocks?

I kept missing Steve's car! Either it passed me by before I could get a picture or it was obscured by other cars on track. Anyway, it looks like Phil Smith got some really good pictures of Steve's Chamois. I shall email mine to you later this evening. :) Alas, I was too focused on the photography to...

That being the case, you might do well to join the Imp Club. :) The Club magazine, Impressions, plus getting along to local Area Centre meetings, should help you to find a suitable car to fit in with your plans.

Any idea what went wrong with the transmission? It sounds like oil loss leading to a mechanical failure of some kind.
