    Next project is to raise the engine an inch as engine sits too low so the sump is below the subframe by a inch and sort the handling and arms out.

    Here are a bunch of pics from the sw-PC sprint on Saturday

    I ventured out to Dakota drift & drag (smeatharp) and had a good day but noticed things need more tweaking to suit me more. Here are some more pictures.

    Things to do now:

    Chop down gearstick :-) ( to sensible hight)

    Search around for weeping brake pipe (as loosing minute amounts of fluid)

    Increase the preload on my front suspension and a little tweak on the rear)

    So not too bad really but want too get it done so that its ready for it next play day on the 6th!
    I need to find an effective way of increasing my steering lock until I choose to mod or change hubs

    If your not going with geomasters / modded hub's , id go for tein inner tie rod's and lock spacers then grind down your lock stops also if youve got adjustable tension rod's adjust them for slightly more castor

    car sounded awesome at the weekend you just need to sort that ride height out when you raise the engine haha

    I'm still unsure if there is a clutch master up to the job that is small enough to fit :-(. I gotta keep looking lol

    Car was very pokey and didn't handle too bad but was very wallowy!

    After a little drift day at zoyland I am thinking that I will need some 15kg front hsd springs as it still a little wallow on transition with preload set fairly high but here is a few photos :-)

    I've now put a new welded diff in with the new solid mounts. Changed gearbox oil to 75-90 as 80-90 is 2 thick as far as I can tell..
