Russell's notes......

 Well after a very successful 2013, 458 has now undergone the essential maintenance and servicing that she deserves.

Terry will keep you up to date on 458 during 2014, and we look forward to another good year this year. 

For all of you that want to talk XS458 I've set up a face book page - lightningt5group - So if you have anything to say or just wish to listen in, join me there. Hope to chat with you soon.

Best wishes

Russell Carpenter, Owner.

Thunder Run Update 19th October 2014
 Hi All,
Just to update you with the current position on 458, as you probably all know we have been having a few problems with the No.2 Engine start up. Last week I attempted three engine starts on No.2 Engine with no success.
Dennis tried again yesterday and unfortunately got the same results, Colin and myself then started to remove the Filter from the No.2 Engine which we hope to replace and complete next Saturday.
It appears at this moment that lack of fuel to the No.2 engine is the problem, so we are getting the obvious and easier jobs out of the way first to see if this makes any difference to the start up.
I will continue to keep you up to date and look forward to seeing you all again soon.
