Avenger's are the tits. Had one as my first car and when i was growing up my mother had an Alpine Avenger 1600TC, it was fookin' coooooool, sweet gauge plastic all in your conical.

Ah man did not realise that was you!

Loved the brake late and turn technique for the corner closest to the tent.

Made many sweet slides.

haha yup - spotted a few faces today but I am shit with names

backtrack is way more fun for me for obvious reason!

needs new brakes now & next time better cooling for radiator - gauge was only just back into the normal section by the time all the other cars had been round

and it didnt even get a chance with the short last few runs

also fix rev counter may help instead of just listening to it...

great day

new vid uploaded now (found me camera cable) shows the run previous!

check it at around 50-55 seconds - is reason why battery was 'looser'

Cool car, funny to see it turn up again...

My uncle used to own it from the 80s until about 2000 when he sold it back to Weirs. Had a couple of good crashes and was completely re-shelled in 1992-3 after it fell over on a hillclimb.

It used to have some good bits in it and was damn quick for what it was. It had a couple of HBCC championships to it's credit from memory.

Need to build an angry new motor with some Webers on it!

41534_725063746_2193714_q.jpgTim George Top one I would say due to better flow of gases as angles are slighter. Higher backpressure will be achieved with bottom one due to tighter angles from the manifold.15 minutes ago · LikeUnlike

173822_768657455_4285630_q.jpgJared Mulinder they hold more /conduct less i suppose - theory sounded good, also kinda prefer OEM due to they support the intake manifold, if only for that reason14 seconds ago · Like

those extractors were custom made, equal length runners etc (according to duncan). possibly have been port matched to the head on your engine as well.

tbh as youve got them off id run the top ones/extractors. otherwise give them to me and I will haha

someone will actually be able to tell you why they are better/the same as factory ones/worse

I'd say the top one would be best, looks like it has equal(ish) length primaries + it is a 4 into 1 which will probably be peakier at the expense of low down torque. Also cast manifolds are poos cos I say so.
