The uncompromised track missile

I should have a brand new Mini Cooper S now, but as it turned out, it just wasn't meant to be. On the other hand, this wasn't all bad, as now I had a chance to search the used car market for a real track toy. After a few weeks of browsing through the ads, one Imola Red Beast caught my eye. At the same second I also lost my heart.

As a bonus, it didn't take too long to get the car. It all seemed to be just perfect. That's at least how it appeared. After a few days I found out that both the brakes and the FK-Coilover's were ruined. Those are fixed now, and there's more to come. I will do my best to transform the track car to the track monster it was born to be. If for no other reason, then to give Mikko a hard time at the Ahvenisto race track ;)
