    I'm now in a race against time to get a braided hose for a brembo to fit it and get car ready for Inters FML!

    I will NOT be dropping out. I'll catch a sodding bus if I have to! I just don't have much luck with my car and the week leading up to shows ;)

    It should all be sorted by tomorrow morning.
