i don,t think you,ll see the old mr2 on sunday, after the last race i had to strip the engine, due to smoke and low compresstion, it turns out that when i had it rebored the machine shop said they,d fit the pistons for free, which i thought was great, now i find they failed to put the retaining clips on the riss pins so the pin slid through the piston and allowed the piston to tip over slightly nocking of a chunk of piston, lucky the bore was not damage, a light glazebreaking should remove scratches, but the new pistons won,t be in until the 15th of may, so you guys have fun see you in june
