    Hi guys from Bedford, UK

    I've been lurking on here since the site went online but have been following things20120722_141429s.jpg Atomic ever since I first saw the original Top Gear video, but it took a while to save and spec up my Atom.

    I've had my Atom 3-245 since August 2011 and have yet to track it, but I'm scratching that itch on Aug 30th.

    It's got lots of standard Ariel options, the only mods I've done are to fit a Reverie custom dual element rear wing and a couple of carbon fibre trim pieces to the top of the rear anti-roll bar mounts.

    I'm currently fabricating some taller rear wing brackets to get the wing into some cleaner air.

    I've promised myself the supercharger later this year, assuming Ariel can get some more stock in ..

    I've really enjoyed following your stories across the water, hopefully I will also be able to see the pictures too now

    They're the standard Ariel UK Individual CF seat option -Tillett B4 seat but with an Ariel custom-made mounting bracket.

    They're very narrow and only really suitable for skinny folk -I believe Ariel are looking at alternatives as most people don't fit.
    - A lot of my chums included

    Very cool. we were just discussing how it would be possible to get a aftermarket seat into an Atom 3. Your seat adjuster looks almost exactly like what I have for my sparco seats
