Colin McRae and Robert Reid on route to winning the Scottish Hackle Rally Escort update as we remove the wide (Group 4) body kit. We discovered some heavily filled & badly aligned panels so what was meant to be a quick straight forward fix turned out to be slightly more involving but getting it correct is the Border Reivers way.

Amazing but true, Porsche resurrected 935 by unveiling this new version during the rennsport meeting of Laguna Seca.
Frank-Steffen Giant, dad of the 918 Spyder and now vice-President of the motorsport department, said it was a birthday present from the competition service for the 70 years of the brand.
The dimensions are not common: the new 935 measure 4.87 m long and 2.03 m wide while the gt2 rs measure 4,55 m and 1,88 m wide, and this is accompanied by changes Equally huge aerodynamic. The whole body has been reviewed and almost all parts are carbon. The rear fin is disproportionate, and the front headlights are missing: they are replaced by small fires in the front shield.
Visually, the 935 resumed the livery of the famous 935 “Moby Dick” and its sails of rims painted in red. In the back, the lights are installed on the fins of the fin, it’s a wink to the 919 hybrid.
Under the hood, there is a flat 6 of a 3,8 litre bi-Turbo Cylinder, borrowed from the 700 HP Gt2 Rs, combined with the pdk box with pallets. The brakes are made of steel with 380 mm discs at the front, 355 mm in the rear, and the weight is 1380 kg (compared with 1470 kg for gt2 RS).
Contrary to the 935 of which it bases the bases, 935 will not be approved on the road, it will only be intended for intensive drives on circuit, but does not respond to any competition programme. It thus joined the very closed club of cars cut for performance without compromise, in the image of the ferrari fxx k or Aston Martin Vulcan.
