Millie wrecked

Considering a Puma - do they *all* rust?

You might get lucky and find something that’s spent most of its life tucked away in a garage but unlikely.I bought one a few years ago that only needed a small repair to one arch.Its done about 75 k miles now and needed no other repairs.

What a drag.

Taking things to extreme,if you look underneath a Lotus Elise/Exige there are no obstruction at all ,just 3 aluminium sheets.No jacking points or even exhaust.Just one flat area.

New member, track day puma

Think first mod would be Fiesta ST front discs/calipers.If you want to reduce lap times then get some driving instruction at the track day.

Oil and brakes

If you haven’t done trackdays before then I would recommend spending a few £s on driver instruction .Will knock seconds off your lap times,far more than car mods.
